WELLE:ERDBALL


WELLE:ERDBALL

Welle:Erdball (often abbreviated as W:E) is a group from Germany often credited of being the pioneers of bitpop. The heavy use of the Commodore 64’s SID sound chip makes their sound instantly recognizable. Their sound is reminiscent of the electronic pioneers Kraftwerk.

Welle:Erdball’s front figure Honey (Dr. G. Linde) is also well known for his involvement in the C64 movement. Welle:Erdball made the music for the Commodore 64 game Metal Dust released by protovision. Welle:Erdball held a concert at the Amiga & Retro computing 2002 fair.

Honey is also active in the goth/synth band homo futura.

The name literally means “Wavelength:Earth”, and in fact comes from a German radio play called “Hallo! Hier ist Welle Erdball!”. Their logo is a Sachsenring logo turned around.

W:E has been a part of the demoscene and produced several musicdisks and other productions over the years. They also gave a live performance at Breakpoint 2006.

In the early days Welle:Erdball went under the name Feindsender. Their music was then much more aggressive and punk-like. Some old Feindsender songs reappear on their later albums such as Rosa Zeiten and Telefonsex wich appears on the EP Nyntändoshock but were first on the album “es ist an der Zeit”.
