Günter introduced his Kraut/new-wave sound to the world a little bit on his second LP release "Uberfallig", and then he took it much further with this 1983 album. It's a shame that no one was daring enough to issue "Children In The Wilderness" as an LP release, as it was at the new cutting-edge of Krautrock. The little YHR label run by David Elliot of Neumusik issued it as a cassette in the UK, but that soon disappeared, and when we contacted Günter he was keen that we reissued it, and was then really pleased again when we proposed to reissue it, digitally remastered and repaired with bonus tracks! It's a gem that stands out of time, it is often challenging, sublimely daring, and full of surprises.
