The Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
A polit-rock band in the uniquely German tradition, akin to Floh De Cologne, Lokomotive Kreuzberg, Checkpoint Charlie, et al., but with a larger sound, male and female vocals, and a technical progressive edge often close to Grobschnitt musically.
Their most ambitious moment was the double album concept work DIE PARISER KOMMUNE, a musical chronicle of the French revolution, handled in a most imaginative manner, from bizarre theatre through to lengthy symphonic progressive tracks. An obscure yet fascinating release.
Members of Oktober (working together with people from Schmetterlinge) also acted as the backing band on an album by P.P. Zahl. Their bassist: Kalla Wefel is still active today. Since the demise of the band he has been busy with: Schneewittchen, solo (as lyricist, composer, singer, producer), and guested with Clinch, Angi Domdey, Andreas Wilczek, and numerous other unknowns! His most recent is called DAS BESTE KOMMT JA NOCH ... (TNT-Records) 2002.
