Cochise - Heimliche Hits

The german band 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.

The name Cochise (name of an Apache chief) expressed their main idea of bringing together the fight of social movements against the repressive government authority with the thoughts and demands of the growing ecological and peace movement.

Because of their radical statments the members of Cochise were more than one time victims of police violence and political justice. Most of the german media ignored the band - nevertheless they reached a phenomenal success. They played more than 1000 gigs in nine years, sold more than 120.000 albums without any media promotion and established a still current myth...
