THROWBACK: Ideal – Eiszeit
Here’s another throwback to the early 80s: The Berlin band Ideal) with their first hit single Eiszeit (Ice Age). Ideal was one of the early bands of the Neue Deutsche Welle and represented the more punk branch of the movement. Looking at it today, they combined heavy guitars with Kraftwerk-like expressionless faces.
I remember a skiing camp at school were cassettes with Ideal music were played up and down. Up to today this song invokes the memory of sitting on the bed in the hotel room, exhausted by skiing all day and eating Milka chocolate.
