Early punk band from Düsseldorf, founded in December 1976 while still in school.
Name change to Vorsprung (2) in late August 1980, then split up after one single gig under the new name ("Belehrung Und Unterhaltung" festival at Audimax, Freie Universität Berlin (1 Nov 1980)).
Members formed two follow-up bands in early 1981, Die Krupps and Freunde Der Nacht.
Male has reformed several times from 1990 on, even recording a new album "Deutschland Im Herbst" in 2005 which remains unreleased yet.

[quote] "....even recording a new album "Deutschland Im Herbst" in 2005 which remains unreleased yet." [end of quote]

-> 1. * that is not entirely correct. according to an e-mail by rüdiger thomas (owner teenage rebel records) and on his behalf,i would like to correct that above quote with the following information: in 2005 MALE only recorded the instrumental part (without vocals) from about half of the originally intended tracks.
after that, the project was unfortunately put on hold.

-> 2. according to an interview with jürgen engler, that album was to be called "deutscher herbst".

source * 1. (part of the e-mail, received 3.8.12):
"Male haben 2005 etwa die Hälfte der vorgesehenen Stücke instrumental eingespielt (also ohne Gesang), danach ist das ganze bis heute leider im Sande verlaufen..."
