(Former) Grün In

al­tern­at­ive com­munity of artists in the coun­tryside

In Gevels­berg-Silschede, 12 kilo­metres from Ha­gen, there was a res­id­en­tial com­munity in the Grün In gues­t­house at the end of the 1970s. The res­id­ents trans­formed the large farm­house in­to a des­tin­a­tion for al­tern­at­ive artists of all kinds. The people liv­ing in the com­mune in­cluded DAF mu­si­cians Wolfgang Spel­manns, Kurt Dahlke and drum­mer Robert Görl, as well as Mi­chael Kem­ner, who later played with Fehl­farben and Mau Mau. At the Grün In, S.Y.P.H. with Ralf Dörp­er on gui­tar re­cor­ded their first demos. Here, in 1979, on a multi-track re­cord­ing device, the first DAF al­bum was re­cor­ded, as well as the début of (Mona Lisa?s) Ma­ter­i­alsch­lacht Kinder­fre­und­lich.
