Angry Flowers - Heaven when you smile

This is a very special post, different from every other series of posts I care about at the moment. The Angry Flowers were a band from Göttingen, that liked the Sixties, to say the least. One of them was Matthias Hanich, the brother of one of my classmates. I think he played bass and sang. Together with Heiko I visited Matt in London, or should I say Tooting Bec. We slept in a student’s dormitory where most students went home during holidays, except for the kids from abroad. As Matt could not get a license to let us live there for a few days, he had to bribe the porter and still every loud noise was a sign to crawl under the bunks! And it worked! I had one situation when the cleaning woman wanted to clean under the bed in the next room (whereI was) and someone talked her out of that because a group of school kids had arrived at that moment! The Go-Betweens and the TV Personalities were more than an influence, and so they created two nice Pop songs! And he showed us Dan Treacy’s house! See this old post .
Grüsse an Heiko Schütte!!!!!!!!!

Now Heiko is making his own music as La Grande Illusion . This was a song from the Television Personalities great LP …and don’t the kid’s love it!
Have a look, you find some samples of his music there.

Where is Matt now?

Every record that has Grace Kelly as coverstar ought to be a hit!

At least these guys had their chance! 

Und das Göttinger Stadtmagazin Hier Itzo schreibt 1986:

Eine Mischung aus Beat, Pop und 77er Punk benennt Sänger Jan Strzelczyk alias Angry Rose das Konzept dieses Quartetts, das bislang in Göttingen über Auftritte bei Privatfeten und im Juzi noch nicht hinausgekommen ist. Je einen Country- und Psychedelicsong hat man jedoch im Programm. Einflüsse: Jam, Buzzcocks, TV Personalities, Who, Beatles.

Matthias Hanich, der Bassist erinnert sich:

hi Michael, das war die erste Schallplatte, auf der ich mitgespielt habe. in Kassel aufgenommen. Am nächsten Tag bin ich dann für ein Jahr nach England gegangen. Dort gab es nach der Veröffentlichung auch eine Abbildung des Covers im Melody Maker. Darunter stand in etwa: Diese Single ist genauso schlecht wie alle anderen, die diese Woche herausgekommen sind. ich fands trotzdem super. viele Grüße Matthias

Hier gibt es die Single zum Download.
