German minimalist pop trio from 1980 to 1985, they gained worldwide reputation for their song 'Da Da Da' which was a hit in more than 30 countries. The group was Stephan Remmler (vocals), Gert 'Kralle' Krawinkel (guitar) and Peter Behrens (drums). They released three albums and one live album (on cassette only, later rereleased on CD).
They regained some fame in 1997 due to 'Da Da Da' being featured in a Volkswagen Jetta commercial called 'Sunday Afternoon'. Mercury rushed out a compilation of tracks to meet the new-found interest in the group.
Odd fact: Peter Behrens, recruited right out of clown school, played drums standing up.
