1. Product Details

Silvia is the name of a Neue Deutsche Welle NDW New German Wave project created Tommi Stumpff and Silvia Nemanic. The pair met in Dsseldorf in the late 1970s and started dating when Tommi was the singer of punk band Der KFC. Silvia was absolutely inexperienced in musical things she said Ive played the recorder. Tommi rented Klangwerkstatt studio for a few days in January 1982 to record his an album with his bandmate Ferdinand Mackenthun aka Kptn Nuss of Der KFC but finished earlier than expected. With one extra day that was already paid for they quickly wrote some more songs and recorded them. All they needed was a singer so they asked Silvia. Simply titled Silvia the record was released in mid-1982 on cult label Schallmauer Records which had released many German punk NDW and New Wave records in the 80s. Tommi and Kptn Nuss played all instruments and wrote the lyrics. Since Silvia had a very deep voice Tommi slightly pitched up her vocals to sound higher on the recordings. The album displays Tommis transition from punk rock to cold electronics EBM and eventually Techno. Tommis instrument set up was a Sequential Circuits Pro One and Moog Prodigy controlled by a Fricke sequencer and a Korg SQ-10 Analog Sequencer. Silvia urges the listener to save themselves and says No miracle will happen You die tomorrow young and guilty evoking the urban Zeitgeist of the Cold War. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Housed in the original jacket featuring a full color of Silvia on the front with hand drawn magenta type. Each copy includes a replica insert of the original lyrics sheet in German and a postcard featuring a black and white photo of Tommi and Silvia. Sadly Silvia passed away in 2003 and this reissue is dedicated to her.
