Slime

Profile:
German punk band from Hamburg, Germany. Founded in 1979, they became one of the style-defining bands of the 1980s. Slime was one of the most influential German punk bands of the early movement and thus shaped the political attitude of a large part of the German scene. With their anti-fascist texts they influenced the history of the German punk movement. Individual slogans, especially from their early phase, were spread in the autonomous scene. Musically and textually, they changed from a band with simple, catchy songs in the style of British punk rock of the late 1970s to a group with more sophisticated song structures and complex, encrypted lyrics.
Slime was controversial at times. The group was accused of “selling out” in the course of its growing success. Her anti-American texts also caused criticism in the left-wing scene. Several songs, particularly the 1980 "Wir Wollen Keine Bullenschweine", We Want No Bull Pigs (aka Bull Pigs), have been the subject of investigation.
After the dissolution in 1984, under the impression of xenophobic pogroms, Slime reunited, but only lasted for two albums. It was only then that the band had commercial success. But they disbanded again in 1994. After a break of fifteen years, the group reunited in 2009 for live performances, 30 years after the date of its first formation.
Because of an enormous reunion tour success the new reformed band of the three founding members Michael Mayer (3) aka ELF (4), Dirk Jora and Christian Mevs and the two new members, bass player Nici (2) and drummer Alex Schwers, they decided to release a sixth studio album in 2012, taking the lyrics and compose them of the anarchist, outlaw, writer and poet Erich Mühsam to bypass to write the lyrics by themselves, because they are not very sophisticated in it and their main texter and ex-member Stephan Mahler didn't like to be part of the reunion of the band again. In that way they dealed with that subject "lyrics" and adapted them of course to their Punkrock music.
In September 2017 followed the seventh studio album called "Here And Now", which contains new songs for the first time since the new foundation.
Slime still keeps on playing and touring and is more successful than ever. In 2019 they celebrate their 40th band anniversary and they have their 8th studio album "Wem Gehört Die Angst", Whom Heard The Fear with them! It will be released in March 2020. They stay true to their line and address important social problems such as anger, activism and the ongoing struggle against fascism, deals, for example, with current issues such as climate change, refugee disaster or AFD being allowed to sit undisturbed in parliament.
