DEUTSCH AMERIKANISCHE FREUNDSCHAFT (DAF) is an influential industrial punk band from Düsseldorf, formed in 1978 in Wuppertal, Germany featuring drummer/synth player Robert Görl, vocalist Gabi Delgado-Lopez, guitarist Wolfgang Spelmans, Kurt Dahlke “Pyrolator”, Michael Kemner, bassist and bassist/keyboardist/saxophonist Chrislo Haas. The band’s name is a term that had originally been used in West Germany, without irony, in the early years of the Cold War, at the height of German popular enthusiasm for all things American, and as humoristic counterpart to the “deutsch-sowjetische Freundschaft” (german-soviet-friendship) parole used in the German Democratic Republic.
