Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung
Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung is one of the anarchistic underground bands that started in Antwerp in the early nineties, but unlike most of those bands they use classical instruments.
Their first album was simply called Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung and contained only instrumental tracks, all called Drieslagstelsel. It was first released on a small independant label in 1995, but rerecorded for Sony Classical.
The second album, We Need New Animals, was a bit more 'mainstream', featuring vocals (among others by girl-with-piano An Pierlé) and electronics. They also shortened their name to DAAU, feeling this was more 'modern' and mainstream.
The third album, Life Transmission, features even more vocals and electronics, but also much more energy than the second album, sounding a lot more like the 'old' Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung. The long version of the name also reappeared.
Their fourth album consists of the music written for the childrens theatre play "Colours - Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain".
