It's the end of 1979, in Ludwigshafen, Ingrid (bass) and Pia (drums)
want to start a feminist punk band. The two young women do not yet know
how to play any instruments. They only know that they want to play, and
meet other women like themselves. Less than 30 minutes away by car in
Heidelberg is where Stephanie (guitar) lives. She responds to an
advertisement from two young women who mention they're looking for a
guitarist, without really knowing why. April 5th, 1980, the women play
in front of their first public audience. At this point they call
themselves "Knitterfrei". Starting in November 1980, they decide on the
name "Trümmerfrauen", thinking that their music had evolved with the
arrival of Gabi (synth). Very quickly, they will become associated with
the Mannheim Punk scene (the city that neighbors Ludwigshafen, separated
by the Rhine). In November 1981, the band records their first 7" in
Berlin which will be released by Zensor. A few months later, in April
1982, Pia quits the band. Stephanie, Ingrid, and Gabi decide to continue
This will be the beginning of the end.
