Eck - Lieder gegen Angst und Unterdrückung (1980)

During the 1970s and 1980s there was a diverse and powerful alternative and left-wing scene in West Germany, being made up of ecological and political groups of various grades of dogmatism, local grassroots organizations, punks, and a growing faction of militant autonomous groups ("Autonome").

Besides its focus in West Berlin there were also important local scenes in the West German provinces. It was here, in the rural and sparsely populated countryside of Schleswig-Holstein, Lower Saxony, Bavaria and Baden-Württenberg, where militant protests and attempts to block the sites, or potential sites, of nuclear power stations took place - leading to the ermergence of alternative camps "occupying" sites in Wyhl, Brokdorf and Gorlben ("Republik Freies Wendland").

An important part of this political scene were always a lot of singer-songwriters, rock bands and other musical projects. One of these songwriteres was Bruno Eckhardt, who released under the alias Eck in 1980 on the "Trikont/Unsere Stimme"-label the album "Lieder gegen Angst und Unterdrückung". The wonderful song "Drum bin ich rot geworden" is a nice version of "The Rifles of the IRA".

Sag mal zero, hast Du zufällig was von Klaus dem Geiger? In den 70ern gab's einige LPs auf Trikont/Unsere Stimme. Wäre toll, wenn Du mir damit aushelfen könntest.
