1989 – present (29 years)
Tyske Ludder is a EBM / industrial / Dark Electro band formed in Lower Saxony, Germany in 1989.
The phrase Tyske Ludder directly translated means "German whore" in Danish and Norwegian and was used in those countries to describe a native woman that was romantically involved with a German soldier during World War II.
In the beginning of the 90s Tyske Ludder set the course for their work as pioneers in the european EBM and Dark-Electro scene. Coming up from the New-Wave and New-Romantic scene they developed very early their meditations on the predominance of technology in our society. Nightmare-like visions of the then-raging war in Yugoslavia as well as the recurring military enforcement of the United States' claim for world domination represent the other thematic constant. Through the years their musical model developed from heavy Electro-Sounds to some kind of ominous dance music somewhere between Industrial and the aroma of a nuclear blast.
In a unique melting procedure the band around vocalist Albert-X was again and again able to produce avant-industrial dimensions of sound which very often divided the followers into two enemy camps. That is how altogether three album originated in the mid 90s.
The scarce live gigs of the four electro-activists constitute the third column of the concept of Tyske Ludder.
At the beginning of our new millennium it has become very calm around Tyske Ludder. Disagreement on the further development of the band's musical blueprint and colliding conflicts of interest made this step necessary.
Since 2004 Tyske Ludder are working again at new material and you can be eager how the years of silence took influence on the aesthetic concept pertaining to the fine arts.
In november 2005 TYSKE LUDDER signed at BLACK RAIN, album 'SOJUS' was released in february 2006.
