RIP: Gabi Delgado-López (DAF)

Singer with influential German electro outfit Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft or D.A.F.
He was 61.

This was their best known song:


Fuck man :frowning: very sad news. A charismatic singer whose vocals could be as blackly hilarious as they were brutally effective. The trio of albums DAF made as duo in the early 80’s is an amazing run that’s barely aged a day, still listen to them loads.

I was still ever so slightly hopeful of seeing D.A.F live but alas, it’s not to be.

Fuck man, incredibly sad stuff. Groundbreaker.


listening to them now, quite enjoying some of it

have tried to get into them in the past as they’re very influential on a lot of music I like (EBM, techno)
