In the fall of 1979 the band Der Moderne Mann was founded in Hannover. After the release of the "Umsturz im Kinderzimmer" EP 1979 at Heile Welt Records the band was signed to the legendary NO FUN Records of Hollow Skai. The band's debut album called "80 Tage auf See", appeared in 1980. The reaction to this album was initially unenthusiastic.
"80 Tage auf See" has been repressed now and contains as bonus the ""Umsturz im Kinderzimmer" EP!
