EX-Neue Heimat

Good hair, good disco

Prob­ably the most im­port­ant un­sung heroine in Ha­gen's pop his­tory is Christa "Mausi" Dürholt. The at­tract­ive, as­sert­ive trained hairdress­er is part of the Ha­gen sub­cul­ture of the 80s. In the nuc­le­us of the mu­sic scene - the flat-shar­ing com­munity B 56 - she goes in and out and, oc­ca­sion­ally, makes sure that the res­id­ents are giv­en styl­ish 80s hair­styles. In 1981 she fi­nally opened what was prob­ably the most im­port­ant dis­cotheque of the Ha­gen mad years. "Neue Heimat" is the place where the latest New Wave songs can be heard by bands like DAF or Fehl­farben. The bands also like to play their demos to see how the scene re­acts. In the "Neue Heimat" ex­change takes place and con­tacts are made in the oth­er cit­ies of the coun­try. Of course the Neu-Ber­liner Neonba­bies (around Inga Humpe from Ha­gen) are al­lowed to per­form here. Phil­lip Boa comes along, in the Ram­bler­s' stu­dio the re­cord­ings of Boas' first mu­sic­al steps with the band "Er­ste weib­liche Fleis­chergesel­lin nach 1945" are made. Gabi Lap­pen founds her band Kein Mensch! here, the first band from Ha­gen to be played by John Peel on BF­BS. DJ Volk­er Britz forms the NDW combo X-Quad­rat. If there's a melt­ing pot for the scene in Ha­gen at the be­gin­ning of the 80s, it's Mausi Dürholt's "Neue Heimat". The dis­cotheque only lasts a few months un­til it gets in­to fin­an­cial dif­fi­culties and closes.
