When East-Berlin punk band DIE SKEPTIKER (formed in 1986 in the GDR) released their first official album 'Sauerei' in 1991, the young Jerome Reuter, who was a devoted listener of many underground punk bands of the era, bought a copy in far-off Luxembourg. Reuter was impressed by the band's singer Eugen Balanskat who had a remarkably unique delivery and unusually poetic lyrics to go with the punk arrangements of the band. DIE SKEPTIKER managed to incorporate the poetic Weltschmerz of classic German poetry (notably of authors like Hesse and Heym) into their grippingly raw punk rock - a juxtaposition which certainly proved quite influential on Reuter's own musical universe years later. The song 'Hinter den Mauern der Stadt', dealing with the difficulties of coming to grips with the clash of the two German cultures and societies after the Fall of the Berlin Wall, particularly stood out on the DIE SKEPTIKER's release.
To celebrate this year's 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, it is a distinct pleasure and honour for Jerome to collaborate on giving this classic song a new coat of paint with the band's original singer Eugen Balanskat.
This collaboration is available as a 7' vinyl, featuring Reuter's German-language song 'Anderswo', which approaches the subject matter in a rather different way on the B-side.
