Werdohl - The best pop album in German , which has been published on the market." (Music Express 1971)
German Rock classic after 45 years back on vinyl again!
1969 formed, IHRE KINDER decided to connect songs in German lyrics with rock music. Given the lack of acceptance among record labels - rock music at that time was exclusively reserved English singing bands - they produced their first LP IHRE KINDER 1969 themselves (supported by Jonas Porst). In 1970 the band signed with the newly established Munich record company Kuckuck and produced the album "Leere Hände" (not without a precaution to make an English version for all pieces). Kuckuck went on with the next albums by IHRE KINDER until the split in 1973.
The songs of the band are known for their complex but also engaged socially critical texts on topics such as substance abuse, apartheid, detention and xenophobia.
In music magazine Star Szene '77 is finally read:
"IHRE KINDER were the first German group that played rock and brought German texts "
"Werdohl" was the fourth album and appeared in 1971. For Germany's largest circulation music magazine Music Express Werdohl was "the best pop album, which has been published in the German language".
This great album will appear after 45 years again on coloured 180 gram heavyweight vinyl, for the first time in gatefold, limited.
