Bernie´s Autobahn Band - Flügel (1988)

Bernie Conrads was German singer and songwriter - maybe one of the best. He died November 17, 2021 - may he rest in peace!

He was the singer of the German folk band Bernie's Autobahnband. The group was founded in 1976 by former members of the dissolved Elster Silberflug and the Good Company duo (Bernie Conrads and Bernhard Schumacher). The German-language songs and some purely instrumental pieces of the group can best be assigned to the folk music style, but at the time also attracted a lot of attention outside the songwriting scene around groups such as Liederjan, Zupfgeigenhansel or Ougenweide . The band played partly politically motivated, partly thoughtful and often deeply witty songs.

After the group broke up in 1989, Conrads continued to write texts and songs, among others for Stefan Stoppok , Peter Maffay and Erich Schmeckenbecher . In 2005 the Autobahn band played four reunion concerts. Conrads has also been working with the musicians of the Pankraz group from Dresden as Bernie Conrads & Pankraz since 2005.

Bernie Conrads characterizes his songs as „Honig für Verliebte, Salbe für Enttäuschte und Taschenlampen für die Suchenden auf Kellertreppen“ ("honey for lovers, ointment for the disappointed and flashlights for those searching on cellar stairs").

The album "Flügel" was recorded and released in 1988.
