A concert held on 01. April 1980 at the legendary Berlin club “Moon” is regarded as the official birth of the Einstürzende Neubauten.
[audio:Einstuerzende Neubauten – ich gehe jetz.mp3]An anniversary celebration that took place on 01. April 2010 at the celebrated Berlin club “Tresor” clearly expressed that the Neubauten are still among the living even after 30 years of the most intensive music ecstasy.
In the rise of the 1980’s, Blixa Bargeld, N.U. Unruh, FM Einheit, Alexander Hacke and Mark Chung declared war on all conventional hearing habits with the release of their tremendously noise-intensive, rhythmically ritual anti-pop music.

It was offered as an antidote for the frightened, paralyzed and media-sedated masses. It was made from a range of instruments carefully beaten together and mostly stolen from construction sites and scrap yards, consisting of steel parts, barrels, drills, hammers, saws and an untuned electric guitar. The sound monster awakened to life was crowned by Bargeld’s blood-curdling screams and feverish texts, impregnated by doomsday fantasies that revolved around ruin and destruction, illness, downfall and death.
Blixa Bargeld, Alexander Hacke, N.U. Unruh, Rudolf Moser and Jochen Arbeit have completely overcome the former Berlin Wall disease and their apocalyptic visions and death wish addictions from the early days have long belonged to the past. Meanwhile, a tireless inventive spirit is still driven by the same, blazingly hot desire and the Neubauten will continue to search further on their eternal quest for that still undiscovered sound.
The Berlin live! show with Einstürzende Neubauten is presented by German tv channel ZDF Kultur and Motor FM. Two other fabulous bands will perform also during the event: post punk legends Wire and Caspar Bötzmann Massaker.
