Does Covenant only produce their music in English? Or do they also make German versions of it? Because from what I see they do have a significant German following.

Why shouldn´t the yhave German fans when making English music? They only did one German song... or Better a German version (Der Leiermann) of the song Like Tears in Rain

That version of Like Tears in the rain is great. I have it on a burned cd but unfortunately that track is scratched. How can I get that version.

You are welcome to ask such questions in our Collector's Corner - would be great if that thread would be a bit more busy anyway. ;)

Der Leiermann was released as a single in Germany, instead of the Dead Stars-single.

Oh, and to answer your other question - I think many underground bands, especially electronic bands, have one of their biggest fan bases in Germany. Maybe because most Germans are rich motherfuckers who can afford many records and many concert tickets, so bands tend to tour here often which results in even more fans, and so on...

Just joking! (sort of) ;)

Yeah, electronic music is quite popular in the country of Stockhausen, Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream. ;) And the country of marching music, I should add - guess a soft spot for straight rhythms in the German's soul made Techno huge here. :lol:

You are so damnly right. Just take DM for example: I´d say they´ve got as many german fans as every other country all together....
And Electronic Music startet right here in the middle of Europe (Kraftwerk etc.)
Techno was born in Berlin. to be continued!

Electronic music and Techno have roots in other countries, too. Just look at the Britsih scene in the late 1970s/early 1980s with bands like Human League, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Soft Cell, Fad Gadget etc. There was a lot of electronic music ranging from Pop to Avantgarde. And they had the Rave movement in the late 1980s.

And don't forget about other places like Brussels, Chicago or Detroit (and Sweden ;) ). All of them important places for the history of electronic music.

But it's true, in Germany electronic music of any kind has always been more popular than in most other places, and this country generated a few generations of bands and artists of that genre. :)

Hey. Don't forget NY! I feel that i must give props to my alma mater here:

New York does have a special place in the history of electronic music, but in a more academic sense, than a popular music sense. The Columbia Computer Music center was a ground-breaking institute in the 50's. There are probably older centers in Europe tho, but the CMC is the oldest in the US and has a quite impressive history. A short version is here... with a link to anecotal histories.. which are rather interesting.

Today we take it for granted (or don't even acknowledge the importance of) what lies at the heart of electronic music, but back then, it was a revolutionary concept.. to compose music in sound... the opposite of the traditional way of scoring, then putting sound to the score.

@Niggels: Nevertheless: Goofy old Germany has always benn the core of this kind of music (I do kow about the roots in Detroit/ Chicago,GB;).

@erichazann: well, NY has seen some great moments of electronic music, too.
What about acid? As far as I can remember, it startet in the great apple.
And nowadays you´ve got "Fisherspooner" for example.

New York is perfect to represent industrial electronic music. This is Gotham City, Metropolis all in one!

Its a naturally born industrial city.
