The Lord works in mysterious ways. Somewhere between Leeds, Manchester and Gothenburg, plans were made for STRASSE.
Europe. Mid-seventies. Rock was getting sleepy and pale. Punk wasn’t even heard of. Listening to Brecht/Weill and Kraftwerk seemed to be the only option. They had guts. Brains but no safety net. And a non-pretentious-way of making music.
The Velvet Underground was also a great inspiration for STRASSE songwriter/singer, Ryden. Mixing the German music scene with the l'enfant terrible of New York could be the perfect clash and a way to create their own sound.
