Formed in 2001, TEENAGE PANZERKORPS aka DER TPK split members between San Francisco and Berlin and Aachen, Germany. They gather semi-annually to record their primitive post-punk jams on cassette. Their music is often described as "Kraut Punk", a mix of crude NEU! rhythms, blown-out guitars and bass, fuzz organ with vocalist Bunker Wolf ranting in German. The band takes obvious influence from early 80's art punk (Minimal Man, Factrix, Savage Republic, Chrome) & California hardcore blurred into a lo-fi drone. So far DER TPK has released:
Gleich Heilt Gleich CDR on Pink Skulls and 7" reissue on Skulltones,
Nations Are Insane CDr on Pink Skulls,
Harmful Emotions LP on Siltbreeze,
Games for Slaves LP on Siltbreeze,
Knut Hamsun 7" on Captured Tracks,
