Which was very comon in the GDR, bands like schleim keim, l'attentat etc.. played all gig's "illegal" in the underground and in churches. They reformed in 1986 with a new singer.They kept a distance to the political punk, but they didn't forget their roots. After writing some new songs about the human thyself, they got permissons to play concert's in the GDR. With Songs like "Rudi" or "Kriegslied" they reported their opinion, but without consequences.
Kaltfront definated a new kind of punk. A few calls it Punk'n'Roll because you hear the influence of Rock'n'Roll. After a few changes in bandpositions the last singer Kannae fled '89 from Praque in the West and the rest of the band decided to disband. After the Reunion of Germany in 1990, they gave there last Concert at Dresdens "Scheune" (www.scheune.org) as support for "Die toten Hosen". In 2005, there was a tribute to Kaltfront at the GrooveStation (www.groovestation.de) with the "Free Little Pigs", who covered a whole CD of kaltfront.
