VA - I Can´t Relax In Deutschland (2005)

The compilation "I Can´t Relax In Deutschland" was released in 2005 on the "unterm durchschnitt" label as a statement against nationalism in german pop culture. They wrote about the album:

"A negativing statement to german pop culture and german society in general labeling "Deutsch" as a positive worth.

Amazingly, in these days being-German functions as a lifestyle perfectly: Music, art as well as fashion and photography labeled as "German" qualify as marketing strategies and bring together pop culture and nationalism in a modern Germany.

The following bands took part at our initiative:
Tocotronic, Kettcar, Von Spar, Stella, Superpunk, peters., Egotronic, Räuberhöhle, Monochrome, Die Goldenen Zitronen, Die Sterne, Knarf Rellöm, Lali Puna, T. Raumschmiere, Saalschutz, Lawrence, The Robocop Kraus, Rythm King And Her Friend, Mouse On Mars."

The label "unterm durchschnitt" writes the following about the idea of indie music in the capitalist system:

"unterm durchschnitt is part of the problem since 1999. we try to uplift subversively popculture beyond the borders of nations and origin. since we are subjected under capitalist conditions as everybody else we refuse to call ourselves independent or diy. it's a myth that dreams of indie-feelings lead to a emancipated society in which the capitalist system is eventually shut down, because this hallucinated freedom can only be a small free space which is in fact provided by the system itself."
