Froh Zu Sein & 8-ep Sampler
The South German punk and new wave band FAMILIE HESSELBACH caused a sensation between 1980 and 1985, first regionally and then nationwide. They indulged in a deliberate eclecticism from the musical preferences of the individual family members and formed these into their unmistakable sound. Disco, pop, punk, rap, no wave, funk, the main thing is danceable. The lyrics in German and Italian, later also in English - and always with a wink. Their trademarks were the rousing live quality of the performances and the use of brass instruments, trumpet and clarinet from the beginning - the tenor saxophone was added later. The songs on this double vinyl LP are from the band's first tape "Droh zu sein", plus 8 songs from the so-called "8-EP-Sampler".
