Fehlfarben Concert

Monarchie und Alltag

Fehlfarben returns with their legendary album to the 21er Haus.

Monarchie und Alltag is a work by the punk/wave combo from Düsseldorf known as Fehlfarben, and was considered by Rolling Stone to be "the most important German pop album of all time". 
On 9 May 2017 the band will bring that 80s feeling back to the 21er Haus, and will play all eleven songs of the legendary album that led to the band’s breakthrough.
With this live presentation of Monarchie und Alltag, the 21er Haus not only forges a new path, but refers to its own history as well: It was in May of 1980 that the band Fehlfarben performed in what was then referred to as the 20er Haus. The concert was organized as a part of the Wiener Festwochen that, under the signature "Arena 70", provided the appropriate framework for music productions of the time.
Düsseldorf was the point of origin for German punk, which eventually brought about the "Neue Deutsche Welle" (German New Wave), and it was Fehlfarben that played a key role in this time of musical departure. Their legendary album Monarchie und Alltag (1980) decisively influenced subsequent developments such as the "Hamburg School" and today’s post-punk wave. In 2017, Fehlfarben is going out on tour again to bring that 80s feeling back to the big stage. Their only appearance in Austria will take place at Vienna’s 21er Haus.
Before the start of the concert, all visitors are invited to see the exhibition Daniel Richter – Lonely Old Slogans on the upper floor of the 21er Haus. Admission is included in the concert ticket.
