DAF ‎– Brothers (1985)

Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft or D.A.F. is an influential German electropunk/NDW band from Düsseldorf, formed in 1978 featuring Gabriel “Gabi” Delgado-López (vocals), Robert Görl (drums, percussion, electronic instruments), Kurt “Pyrolator” Dahlke (electronic instruments), Michael Kemner (bass-guitar) and Wolfgang Spelmans (guitar). Kurt Dahlke was replaced by Chrislo Haas (electronic instruments, bass guitar, saxophone) in 1979.

D.A.F. released five albums in the period 1979 to 1982 and by the time of the release of the third album, the minimalist pop masterpiece “Alles Ist Gut”, D.A.F. were reduced to the duo of Gabi and Robert.

The next two albums, Gold und Liebe (Gold and Love) and Für immer (Forever), continued in the same vein, until, as one British music journalist of the time put it, D.A.F. had exhausted all the possibilities of the 16-step sequencer.

The duo reformed briefly in 1985 to record their only English language album, “1st Step To Heaven” which spawned a number of singles including Pure Joy, Voulez Vous Coucher Avec Moi Ce Soir and Brothers.
