Biography

There are multiple artists named Pankow:

1) Pankow is an Italian band based in Florence, Italy whose core consists of multi-instrumentalist /sample manipulator Maurizio Fasolo and German vocalist Alex Spalck. Dark and nihilistic in the extreme, as well as intermittently scatological, Pankow saw their first domestic release in 1988 with an EP titled “Freedom for the Slaves”. 1989’s “Gisela”, the band’s first full-length album, contained a cover of the Normal’s “Warm Leatherette”, as well as the notorious “Me and My Ding Dong”, which musically updated the sensibility of Chuck Berry’s “My Ding-a-Ling”. “Me and My Ding Dong” was remixed and issued as the centerpiece of an EP titled “Pankow Show You Their Dongs”, upon which point the band parted ways with Wax Trax!. Pankow resurfaced in 1991 with a live compilation on ROIR, “Omne anima triste post coitum”.

2) Pankow was a German rock band, founded in East Berlin in 1981, which broke up officially on December 31, 1998. Their name came from the Berlin district of Pankow, which was once home to most of the officials of the East German government and contains spoken “Punk”.
The band’s original lineup consisted of Jürgen Ehle, Ingo Griese, André Herzberg, Rainer Kirchmann, and Stefan Dohanetz. Other members were Frank Hille und Hans-Jürgen (Jacky) Reznicek and Jens Jensen.

    @Dwarf: Wo wird denn die ost-deutsche Band bitte mehr gehört bzw wovon machst du das abhängig ? Von den deutschen Titeln i.d. Charts? Falls ja solltest du deine Aussage überdenken, denn die Italienischen Pankow haben ebenfalls etliche deutsche Titel und Texte, ihr bekanntester: "Kunst & Wahnsinn", diese Woche mal wieder auf Platz 1 (Stand: 9. April 2014) - Immer diese unqualifizierten Behauptungen im Internet, ...

    naja es sind zu beiden Bands Texte vorhanden und das Bild wird von Anfang an durch die Italiener dominiert und guggt man die gespielten Songs an, werden die DDR-Musiker einfach wesentlich mehr gehört !

    Richtiger Text, jedoch falsche Band!!! Es geht hier um die italienische Electro-Band nicht um die DDR-Rocker! Und wie "modhelius" ganz richtig anmerkt, ist die italienische Band wesentlich bekannter als die ostdeutsche, die ausserhalb Deutschlands tatsächlich KEINER kennt.[2]

    The german band was making a profitable pop, the pop is always in advantage...the italian project works where the shitty pop doesn't arrive...so, the number of listens is relative...and in any case, the singer of the italian band is German (Happy, Mr Calculator?)...in conclusion, here we have an italo-german page, and any person can support his favorite band..the italian rules ! Meine Grüße...

    so the italian band is known by more people? but: the playcount tells us that the german band is heard by more people. heard (proofable fact) > known (speculation)

    Es gibt doch mindestens drei Pankows? Es gibt noch diese recht unbekannte Gruppe, die eher Industrial macht: http://www.amazon.de/Pankow/dp/B0002O3AWO/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1252401525&sr=8-16

    The Italian band is undoubtedly the most popular and famous of these two. I doubt that many outside Germany even have heard of the other band.
