Album Review

Mont Klamott, originally released in 1983, was a landmark album for both Silly and German Democratic Republic rock music. It was the first time the band unleashed their full creative potential and set new quality standards for East German rock. Songs like the title track, a story about a hill piled up from World War II rubble, "Raus Aus Der Spur," or "Unterm Asphalt" were beautifully crafted works.

The 1993 remastered CD version also contains the song "Dicke Luft," which was censored out for the 1983 original release of the album.
