Cochise - Die Erde war nicht immer so (1984)

Maybe this is another great "Volksmusik" recording in the literal sense: Simple, but always nice melodies, uncomplicated lyrics, refrains you can sing along and all in all songs that tell us stories about real life in a certain society and time, about the social struggles and everyday fights. Thanks, Jenny Bauer, for bringing our attention to this topic (see Staff Benda Bilili concert review).

Cochise from Dortmund played folk music with mostly political lyrics inspired by left wing perspective.

Cochise were founded in 1979 and became one of the musical voices of the alternative movement in Germany.

They developed an unique lyrical and musical language connecting the political contents of the 70s and 80s with powerfull, delightfull music and the rebellious attitude of a whole generation.

Saw them several times in the Karlsruhe region.
It was "Zeitgeist" - peace movement, öko and a bit anarcho.
