"That's the old 80s "Neue deutsche Welle" - it was better than most (actually, all except Spliff and Kraftwerk) of the 'New German' stuff in terms of style and the use of synthesizers. The arrangements are so clever that you almost won't notice that Vera Vanessa de la Palma ranges only slightly north of unable to sing.

Nowadays, like most of the analogue synthie music, it sounds shallow if not boring, as sure most whiz-kids can create those sounds on their PCs between two sessions of Counterstrike Source.

Anyhow, if you like the more avantgarde German 80's music, get this record, all of the Spliff records and don't miss ZaZa's debut album ("ZaZa"), which, like "Hab Mut zu Deinen Lüsten" was a one-hit-wonder, unfortunately." (Discogs review)

"Der Kleine Elefant's got lot's of synth's, catchy sugary verses and a big dose of weird. And it's about elephants. Elephants are so rad."

Here is again a total underrated band with an amazing good album. Very catchy and never boring! The lyrics are clever and the woman-men pair of vocals are also pretty good. Two songs, "Der Kleine Elefant" and "Walpurgisnacht" were minor hits in the ndw chart at that time. I like them of course, but also like some more as "Gut Bewegen" which is one of the best synthpop songs ever really! Same with the Kraftwerkish "10 Go". Another pearl is "Mach Mich Heiser" which is slightly smilar to Telex with its tight rhythms. One more to mention: "Tanz Mit Sergio" remind me another band: OFF. Anyway the whole album is really brilliant!
The album was released by Reflektor Z (Extrabreit, Die X Agenten, Zero Zero, Mannschreck)

??? If the members see this, hope they will fill me

There is nothing about them, since - i think- their names are only pseudonyms.
Sergio De Lacasio wrote a disco song for Maxine D called "Everything's All Right"(1985). Since then whereabouts unknown.

UPDATE (05.19.2010):

I got a message from Andreas!

He told:

"Very cool Saltyka. I am one part of Recht Herzlich "Sergio" and happy to read your praise after all those years. And you are right - I still get goosebumps myself when I hear "Gut Bewegen". I have toyed around with the idea to re-release "Gut Bewegen" again."

Some i found about Andreas:

Thank you Andreas for visiting us and for the kind words as well! After reading your message i was able finally to find some info to update this page:)

I think it is a very good idea to re-release Gut Bewgen ,as it is
1,one of the best ndw i heve ever heard,
2, it is very rare, and many fans would be happy with a remastered quality CD with some unreleased and mix.

Yes please,if you have some unreleased songs in your vault... is there a chance to listen to them

Also wanna ask what happened to Vera Vanessa De La Palma? Do you have any info?

And finally please tell me some Recht Herzlich biography -icluding what is the story of the name Recht Herzlich?- as there is no info available:(

Thank you and cheers

Hi salty

you can find a remix of gut bewegen here.

I was playing with Ableton Live and did some overlays to give it more punch.
Have fun
