Cloak & Dagger 2018
Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft – the duo of Gabi Delgado-López and Robert Görl – began in 1978 in Düsseldorf, Germany, introducing to the world a new style of electronic punk that remains a major influence on EBM and industrial bands today. The band originally split during the recording of the 1982 Für Immer album, reuniting in 1985 to record the English album 1st Step to Heaven, and then again in 2003 with the Fünfzehn Neue DAF-Lieder (15 New DAF Songs) album. While Delgado-López and Görl would perform in DAF and their own respective projects throughout the years, the band split again in 2015 after a farewell tour.
