Die Sterne – Der Riss E.P. (12″)

Release: 2 October 2009
Cat#: Gomma 133

Produced by Mathias Modica (Munk)

Our little Gomma label is currently making a little transformation: originally we only released the music of friends and new yet unknown talents… but since a few months we are getting this huge attention not only from all the cool blogs (yes..thanks guys!) but also from a lot of  already more established musicians. In fact, after James Murphy (DFA), Nick McCarthy (Franz Ferdinand) and Soulwax participated on Gomma releases, now we have a second wave of BIG guys that asked us to release their projects. Next to The Phenomenal Handclap Band (which includes members of TV On The Radio, John Spencer and others) now German super group DIE STERNE asked MATHIAS MODICA from MUNK to produce their new music and put out a 3 track E.P on Gomma.

DIE STERNE are part of the so called “Hamburger Schule”….Blumfeld and Tocotronic are other bands that were part of this wave of German pop music. These bands from Hamburg defined a quite intellectual, new attitude back in the 90ies. DIE STERNE are very well known in Germany…EVERYBODY loves them… so now its fun that they asked us to do this record….but of course: we are honored….. and their new style which was created by Mathias …our Munkyboy from Marseille….is …don’t know…maybe imagine DFA recording their stuff with a London garage punk band, some weirdo east European old school printing machine noises and German lyrics…
Anyway: The E.P. went straight to number 1 in the Amazon download genre charts in Germany. Yeah…
