AMI MARIE – “VerrÃ¼ckt Nach GlÃ¼ck” (1981)
This one was a request from a few months back from an ECR reader who later found the album on his own without my help — but I thought I’d post it anyway, price as it was a fun listen.
Ami Marie was a short-lived NDW (Neue Deutsche Welle) band that made lots of dinky-donky sounds. That’s about all I can dig up on the band, but usually that’s enough to make you download it anyway, right?
The album cover makes it look like it’s going to sound like Bauhaus, but it’s really more synth-y, and has some female vocals running through it as well. Normally I’m burnt out on the whole German New Wave thing, because a lot of it tends to sound very, very same-y, but this one caught my ear off guard at moments –
