Music from Germany – Electric Love

Electric Love , a Kickass  Punk Group from Stuttgart /South Germany founded i think in 2008. Another gig i saw on the Mini Rock Festival in Horb this year . They have been the startup band of the second festival day and have to play in the tent also on the small stage , due to the hot wheather and to the very early time (2:00pm) there have not been a lot of visitors on the festival field – the poor ones missed this great gig of these 4 faboulous musicians – two ladies on bass and rhthm guitar and two guys on lead guitar and drums .

Here is their song – Maybe

and another picture from the gig
