We came across this little album and were struck by the cover artwork, as it is pretty nifty. There is a little man on what appears to be a rocket ship, at the top of the house and there are three dolls sitting down below. Everything about it is just too cool. We couldn’t believe when we researched it, that it had originated as a school project for a 16 year old, Andreas Dorau at Otto-Hahn-Jenfeld comprehensive school in Hamburg. He and his classmates (ranging from 11 to 14 years of age) composed the music and wrote the lyrics. Their teacher Jürgen Krefft, oversaw the whole thing. “Fred Vom Jupiter” is about a handsome and strong extraterrestrial who makes the fräuleins swoon. It reached the top 20 in Germany & Austria and is considered a quintessential example of the German New Wave (Neuen Deutsches Welle). Enjoy the single below:
