AG Geige


AG Geige was formed 1986 in Karl-Marx-Stadt (nowadays Chemnitz) East Germany. Members were: Frank Bretschneider, Torsten Eckhardt (until 1989), Olaf Bender (replacement for Torsten Eckhardt), Jan and Ina Kummer. For an East German band they played a unique blend of electronic music with dadaistic lyrics sending up government sanctioned media blurb without being too openly critical. The band was championed by a few late night DJs from DT64 (Government run East German Youth Radio) and found niche audience amongst East German alternative types. Read more on Last.fm

The band was championed by a few late night DJs from DT64 (Government run East German Youth Radio) and found niche audience amongst East German alternative types.

However, AG Geige felt their own limitations during live performances due to lack of decent technical equipment. After the fall of the wall 1989 AG Geige played gigs around all of Germany (e.g. Popkomm) and Switzerland. Their biggest concert was in 1991 as part of 3rd International Artrock-Festivals in Frankfurt am Main, which Frankfurter Rundschau described as „Nullmusik“ (Zero Music). AG Geige disbanded 1993. Releases: „Yachtclub & Buchteln“ (Tape only 1986, re-released 1996 CD) „Trickbeat“ (1989 on East German government owned label Amiga) „Raabe?“ (1991, Label „Traumton“) Read more on Last.fm.
