Berlin, Germany (1980 – present)

Einstürzende Neubauten is an ever-changing musical entity, originally formed in Berlin, Germany, on the 1st April 1980. Neubauten were initially seen as part of the second wave of bands, filling the space left when Throbbing Gristle terminated their mission. Neubauten’s early output fit the term “industrial” well, as it (ab)used the sounds of machinery, metal-on-metal, construction-site equipment, and treated tape loops, creating harsh soundscapes and rhythmic textures reminiscent of . Their inclusion on the record label Some Bizarre, with acts like Foetus, Coil, and Test Dept., consolidated this position as new industrial pioneers.

However, Neubauten soon outgrew the confines of even the broad scope of industrial music. In their 25-plus years, they have produced a dozen studio albums, live records, a remix album and EP, scored theatre pieces, and more.

Lead vocalist Blixa Bargeld is perhaps the best-known member of the group, both for his work with Neubauten and as guitarist for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. His fellow founding members Alexander Hacke and N.U. Unruh have likewise been active in various musical roles outside the group over the years.

Bassist Mark Chung was a member of the group from 1981 to 1994. He founded the publishing house Freibank Music Publishing to handle business affairs for Neubauten and other groups, and has continued in this role (concurrently serving as a senior vice-president of Sony Music International for nine years). Percussionist FM Einheit, was a member from 1981 to 1995, and has also been active as a solo artist and member of groups such as Gry.

    Стоп, а что тут к вокалу так придрались? Это ж вам не джаз, не опера или какой-нибудь вычурный симфо-метал. Это индастриал, притом звучит на первый взгляд, как антимузыка (но на то он и нойз, чтобы использовать для создания нужного звука любые средства вплоть до тележек из супермаркета). И вообще, не понимаю срача в этом рупоре, у Раммштайна еще можно понять (не в обиду Тиллю и Ко, их каждый гопник знает), а много ли у нас слышали про Новостройки? Один из 200-300 человек, в лучшем случае.

    Кстати, предыдущий узурпатор - это моя первая любовь, и расстались мы с ней, именно из-за ёё бешеного поклонения Отелю. Как я такую озабоченную идиотку любил?!!

    Гениальные немцы. До начала 2000-х крайне хороши, пока не был выпущен Silence Is Sexy. На этом эпохальность группы и закончилась, собственно.

    считаю что в данной группе лох только один, из-за его абсолютно уебищного вокала, не судите строго
