1. Product Details

Keine Ahnung was a quartet from Wrth am Rhein Germany formed in 1980. The original line up was Rolf Schmuck Franz H. Rodenkirchen Elke Fuchs and Olaf Schumacher. Hermann Kopp from Stuttgart a friend of the band contributed a composition on their first LP and became a full member in 1985. Taking cues from Conrad Schnitzler Tuxedomoon and Dome the band members shared a common interest in industrial pop avant garde literature and cinema. Their controversial name translates to Dont know or Havent got a clue in German. The quartet would record three LPs in 6 years two of which remain unreleased. In March 1983 Keine Ahnung recorded their self-produced and financed debut LP in two days in a small studio in Stuttgart 12 hours total. The mixing was done in one day in a studio in Karlsruhe April 1983. The self-titled LP was released later that summer on their own PASSIV label in an edition of 1000 copies. This record obtained recognition far beyond the German borders. Keine Ahnung in the studio and live were completely different. Studio time was expensive in these days so the music was minimal electronic pop expertly crafted and razor sharp man machine music. The live sound utilized more complex synthesizers tapes guitars metal percussion and custom built electronics. The beats and bass lines came from the Roland 606/303 duo triggering a KORG MS-20 for the bass drum. The track Funkbild DPA is a spontaneous live in the studio recording that gives a hint of what the live sound was like. All four members would take turns singing and playing the instruments. The original master tape was transferred by Frieder Butzmann in Berlin. All songs have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley CA. The vinyl is housed in an exact replica jacket designed by Rolf Schmuck featuring black and white texture and cartoon drawings the band members. Each copy includes a double sided insert featuring lyrics notes and photos of the band.
