About Alphaville

The simple, synth-based Euro-pop of Berlin's Alphaville borrowed heavily from the textures and drama of Ultravox and was essentially a showcase for the over-the-top, Bryan Ferry-influenced vocals of Marian Gold. The early lineup also featured Bernhard Lloyd and Frank Mertens, but membership fluctuated over most of the group's career. Alphaville had a big European hit in 1984 with its first single, "Big in Japan." They continued recording into the 21st century, including 2010's Catching Rays on Giant. ~ Steve Huey
