24 March 2018: Kleenex Aktiv – Sternenklare Nacht

Artist: Kleenex Aktiv
Title: Sternenklare Nacht
Language: German (the band are from Austria)

This rather excellent track is the B-side of the band’s 1982 single ‘Weisse Rosen’. I could find scant information about this band, I’m afraid, so I can’t give you much of an insight into their history. I know they were from Vienna, and were active between 1981 and 1986. My partner says they sound reminiscent of Gang of Four, which can only be a *good* thing.

Last night on BBC4 they showed an episode of ‘Top of the Pops’ from 1985, which featured the band Opus singing their hit ‘Live is Life’. They were also from Austria. Life just isn’t fair sometimes, is it?
