Die Doraus


This is nearly as good as a thing can be, besides maybe Leoncie. Die Doraus und Die Marinas / Blumen und Narzissen / 1981. Andreas Dorau was only like 16 when this album was made, and the group of schoolgirls billed as Die Marinas were even younger. "Fred Vom Jupiter" is silly and rad and was a hit in Germany at the time, that's how great 1981 was.
