STRÖER

STRÖER, the amazing debut album by the German drummer, percussionist and composer Ernst Ströer and his younger brother, bassist Hans Peter Ströer which was currently only 19 years old at the time they recorded this record. Later, during the 1980s they released music under the name STRÖER DUO or also STRÖER BROS. (together with Howard Fine).

On this very first release they formed up, especially for the vocals, with some other musicians. And what they together created is an amazing sound, very ahead for its time. Soulful Synth-Pop, New Wave with Jazz elements. In particular DON’T STAY FOR BREAKFAST with this catchy vocals by Dagmar Hellberg, groovy bass lines and this deep synthesizer sounds is absolutely towering on the album.
