I'm Brazilian, I've always loved music and since I was little I buy and I listen to rock.
During the 70's I met a magazine called Pop, which I christened German Pop, since it was of Germanic origin, I did not understand what was written in the great majority, but it was there that I met the groups that I publish here on the blog today. Rock made in Germany is one of my favorites, but my taste is very eclectic.

Sou brasileira, sempre amei música e desde muito pequena compro e ouço rock. Durante os anos 70 conheci uma revista chamada Pop, que batizei de Pop Alemã, uma vez que era de origem germânica, eu não entendia o que estava escrito na sua grande maioria, mas foi ali que conheci os grupos que hoje publico aqui no blog. O rock feito da Alemanha é um dos meus favoritos, mas meu gosto é muito eclético.

Steve Robinson (Germany-Kraut) 1978.It's a lie

Steve Robinson (his name is said to be an Englishified pseudonym) is a highly reputable musician of the Mannheim scene. Best-known as the wild electronics/keyboards wizard with Twenty Sixty Six And Then, he's also worked quite a lot in numerous projects with follow Mannheim multi-instrumentalist Michael Bundt.
Until very recently, IT'S A LIE was merely the missing unknown number from the Blubber Lips catalogue, which according to one source was a "interesting Krautish progressive artrock that reminds a little of early Genesis", however it turned out to be disappointingly mediocre really, very song based (proving Steve to be German, with his accent and slightly dodgy English), but with elements as diverse as Van der Graaf Generator, Supertramp, and pretty straight ballad pop-rock towards Elton John and David Bowie!

Many thanks. I like Michael Bundt, so I'll give this a try.
