Wolfsheim are a synthpop duo from Hamburg, led by Peter Heppner, who should destoy his own reputation with his unbearable solo works later. The band was named after Meyer Wolfsheim, a fictional character from 'The Great Gatsby'. They are best known for their debut breakthrough single, "The Sparrows and the Nightingales", the first single to be released on Strange Ways in 1991. The band's musical style takes cues from the 1980s New Romantics, new wave, synthpop, and darkwave.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Designer Eloise Leigh has updated the record's original design with two sparrows enclosed in a blood moon circle against a deep black purple backdrop. Each copy comes with a black and white photo postcard notes by Carlos Peron and the song's lyrics. This release comes in time to celebrate the single’s 25th anniversary.
Stay tuned for the ReIssues of Deine Lakaien, Lacrimosa, Goethe's Erben. (nope)
