Slapp Happy

Slapp Happy was a German/English/American group formed by Dagmar Krause, Anthony Moore and Peter Blegvad (the tall one). Before moving to England in 1974, they recorded their avant-rock debut Sort Of in Wümme, West Germany. The signature tune ‘Blue Flower’ lifts a hook from the The Velvet Underground’s ‘Femme Fatale’, but they also plough their own furrow with the careful use of Krause’s distinct vocals. ‘Blue Flower’ would be covered by Mazzy Star and Pale Saints.
