EA80 - Licht! LP + 7'' 1989

Licht! is the fourth studio album by Germans primary punk band EA80 and is faster and rougher as other publications. When this came out I remember at that time that I did my community service in Lüneburg and I bought the LP somewhere in Hamburg. And I was burning to listen to the album and of course I had no record player there so I must wait two weeks to finally drive home and enjoy this fantastic piece of vinyl. That was a bloody ordeal I can tell you.... and then after the firtst listen I was completely blown away, "Wham!" and without exaggeration, the songs on this record are the best I have ever heard, not to topp the optimal implementation of the lyrics (about love/hate/sadness/confusion/desperation) played lyrically wonderful with the music. Their fourth album is for me one of the best punk records ever and has put many times my feet again on the ground in some dark stages of life. Notice: this album was released with a 7'' so don't buy without it. EA80 are and stay uncommercial and document the D.I.Y. spirit in an exemplary manner. Visit Heinrich's Einwegwelt blog for more rare studio, live and compilation material, it's worth!!
