Previously known as Hanuman .
They changed name after leader Wolf-Rüdiger Uhlig left,
(Uhlig will join the legendary heavy progressive rock band Murphy Blend.)
naming themseives after the closing track on the Hanuman album.
Lied Des Teufels (in English "Songs of the Devil") made a much more
aggressive politico-German rock, stylistically between Out Of Focus,
Floh De Cologne and Ton Steine Scherben, being all the more theatrical
and offbeat on their second album.
Lied des Teufels (songs of the devil) was a post MURPHY BLEND and HANUMAN outfit, that recorded this excellent German progressive Krautrock album on the KUCKUCK label in 1973. The lyrics are strongly politically and socially engaged, while it is musically very similar to the first two OUT OF FOCUS albums.
This album, is a perfect example of the early 70s German progressive Krautrock scene.
