ONE MODEL NATION – the band. Germany, 1977 – the economic miracle is at hand. An entire generation that has grown up with the shame of World War II embraces western culture as capitalism begins to take root. Underneath the veneer of the financial prosperity, the country is still shattered from the devastation of war. A radical segment of the youth fight back against a repressed nation. Their only figurehead of this violent, well dressed revolution is a band soon to be forever lost in time; ONE MODEL NATION.[youtube Y51Wn3IEJBc nolink]
This is only part of the story. I have spent the better part of 10 years examining the mysterious group of talented young musicians known as ONE MODEL NATION. They were the voice of a generation. The first German group to appear on the UK music charts.
