DAF


DAF

Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft or D.A.F. got its start in 1978 in Düsseldorf with Robert Görl, who had classical and jazz training, and the musical autodidact Gabi Delgado-Lopez as its masterminds. Other members joined the group, but by 1980 the band was reduced to the original duo.

With their unpolished sound consisting of pumping synth rhythms mixed with minimal sequences and lyrics full of imperatives, they were pioneers of the New German Wave movement as well as of house and techno music and they also strongly influenced the later electronic body music. Their synth sound is sometimes misleading; their style is decisively punk with electronic instrumentation. They were one of the first bands to use the Roland-Synthesizer TB-303 to produce baselines for their music, a technique later used in the acid movement. Even in the mid-90s their influence could be heard in hard rock tunes by bands such as Rammstein and Oomph!.

Band members: Robert Görl (drums, electronics), Gabi Delgado-Lopez (vocals), Kurt "Pyrolator" Dahlke (electronics, until 1980), Michael Kemner (bass), Wolfgang Spelmans (guitar), Chrislo Haas (electronics, 1980-81).

Music style: Punk, Techno/Industrial, New German Wave
