IKKE & BAND, Uns jibt dit noch!


This is a good example of the kind of music that the hard-working locals, the real born-in-the-city West Berliners, produce. Impossible that this could have been made by people moving to the city from elsewhere. Those people start bands like Einstürzende Neubauten. Musically this is meaningless but the lyrics make it kind of historically interesting. Singing “Uns jibt dit noch!”( “We`re still here!”) must have reflected a feeling a lot of Berliners shared when West-Berlin was an island in the middle of East Germany. Probably made in the mid to late 80s it was only a short time until that feeling changed. After the wall came down in 1989 the eyes of the whole world were on Berlin.
