d a f Das Ist DAF (5 CD boxed set, £30.95)label: Gronland
This compilation will allow you to experience the music of DAF; the darkest and hardest driving musical imperative ever to come out of Germany. The box set contains their classic four albums (‘Die Kleinen Und Die Bösen’ / ‘Alles Ist Gut’ / ‘Gold und Liebe’ / ‘Für Immer’) as well as a separate disc of remixes (Giorgio Moroder, Westbam, Boys Noize and more). “While the techno cognoscenti have long bent the knee to Düsseldorf`s DAF, the band deserve a wider audience. This handsome boxset, which collects four of their key albums from 1980-82, along with a fine collection of remixes, should spread the gospel beyond the hardcore…. this all begs to be rediscovered.” - Q Magazine. “... in under three years, DAF made a little go a long way. Across pop-culture the pairs brutal, tongue-in-cheek approach and rahter stern, homoerotic image has had a profound effect on a certain strain of outsider artist, shaping all manner of fraternal misfits from Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Pet Shop Boys to Nitzer Ebb and Sleaford Mods... in this brief period they burned with such a brilliant intensity that 35 years later their influence is still being felt” - Uncut. “The band had an enormous influence on electronic artists in the ´80s, from experimental to industrial and EBM to what would later become house and techno” - Resident Advisor.
