Niss Puk Band

Antiwar songs by Niss Puk Band

Gruppo capitanato dal polistrumentista, singer-songwriter tedesco Roger Matura e composta da Peter Herrmann, “Crazy" Wolfgang Kaczmarek e Hans-Peter Schneider. Nel 1978 si trasferirono tutti a New York dove incisero tre album per la Folkways Records.

This Band with an unlikely name and unlikely origins may be the best debut in the contemporary folk field since the 60´s. Like Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton, the Band adeptly handles both gentle reflective pieces and more hard-hitting poltitical numbers like the title track and the tragic and explicit “Nicaragua” (J.P., “Rocking Chair“ USA 1979)
