Mein Herz Macht Bum & Als Wär's Das Letzte Mal - D.A.F.


D.A.F. is an influential German electropunk/NDW band from Düsseldorf,
formed in 1978 featuring
Gabi Delgado-López (vocals),
Robert Görl (drums, percussion, electronic instruments),
Kurt "Pyrolator" Dahlke (electronic instruments),
Michael Kemner (bass-guitar)
and Wolfgang Spelmans (guitar).
Kurt Dahlke was replaced by Chrislo Haas (electronic instruments, bass-guitar, saxophone) in 1979.

The name stands for Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft (literally, German-American Friendship) – a satirical reference to the DSF, the East German Deutsch-Sowjetische Freundschaft (German-Soviet Friendship Organization).

The album Alles Ist Gut(Everything is fine) received the German "Schallplattenpreis" award by the "Deutsche Phono-Akademie", an association of the German recording industry.
