Rock music in East Germany

The representative volume published by Ch. Links Verlag brings together 216 song texts from numerous bands from 1970 to 2013. Almost all of the important writers from eastern Germany are represented. In addition, 80 large-format black and white photos by Ulrich Burchert provide insights into the music scene. A series of essays, among others by Wolfgang Herzberg, Christian »Flake« Lorenz, Hans-Eckardt Wenzel and Peter Wicke complement the volume. The editor Lutz Kerschowski, himself a rock musician, introduces the book in an interview with Wolfgang Herzberg.
