At the end of the 1960s, Germany was still a developing country when it came to rock music. If you want to hear loud guitar riffs, you would listen to bands from the USA and England. They dominated record stores, dance halls and the few radio and television stations. But something is happening in the state of the D-Mark. Bands like the Rattles, Lords, Tonics, Petards, Giants, German Bonds and so on represent the sixties beat, now and again with original approaches.
The late sixties witnessed a process of revaluation of popular music. With 'Revolver' and 'Pet Sounds', rock music establishes itself as a new art form. And a young, mostly academically educated generation felt that its honor had been taken: If rock is no longer just entertainment, but is even taken seriously by the bourgeois feuilleton, doesn't a country with this great tradition in serious music have a special responsibility? In the future, it will be about the specifically German contribution to the history of rock music, the search for its own musical identity.
