Cpt. Kirk &. were a music group between the 1980ies and 90ies from Hamburg, Germany. Together with und Ostzonensuppenwürfelmachenkrebs and Kolossale Jugend they were regarded as the first band of the genre "Hamburger Schule".
Campingsex was an early noise-rock/post-punk band from Germany. Lead by singer/writer/artist Max Müller of Mutter fame, Campingsex rose directly from the ashes of the legendary Honkas in the early 80s. They released their only album "1914!" in 1985, of which Thurston Moore once said that it had a huge influence on Sonic Youth and is still one of his favorite records ever.
Kastrierte Philosophen (their name can be translated as "gelded philosophers"), was formed in 1983 by Matthias Arfman and Katrin Achinger in Germany. Those two performed together with various other artists on their releases as well as at their concerts. One could see Kastrierte Philosophen as more a musical project then a regular band.
"Nagorny Karabach" were the more dark part of the "Hamburger Schule". Martin Hermes, Ralf Lota Heydeck, Alexander Hoffmann, Stefan Schneider and Michael Trier played on this 1990/91 production so called "avantcorebeat".
Mittagspause was an influential pre-punk band from Düsseldorf, Germany. The band was formerly existent as Charley's girls with a slightly different line up (?). Mittagspause released a selftitled 2x7inch, a further 7inch called "Paff" and a live LP called "Punk macht dicken Arsch". The studio recordings have been reissued on a CD.
