Floh de Cologne (Translated as: Flea of Cologne) were a German band, active from 1966 to 1983, regarded as a pioneer of krautrock and Political Satire Music. After success at the beginning of the 70s, the band separated in 1983. The group was formed in 1966 by a group of radical theatre students from the University of Cologne. Their first album, Vietnam, released in 1968, is a fierce criticism of the war in Vietnam. the profits made from said album was donated to a Vietnamese charity.
Only for completionists (6%). And therefore in January 1971 FLOH DE COLOGNE put the first german rock opera 'Profitgeier' on the stage. This album is full of harsh left-wing criticism at the situation in Germany and reflects the social background with the student protests at the end of the 60s and a spirit of optimism which also had an effect on many workers. Unlike other german bands with a political approach like EULENSPYGEL the FLOH DE COLOGNE members didn't make any compromises. Profitgeier' is another german description for 'exploiter'
On the label the title is also just ''Profitgeier''. Recorded live on January 11th 1971 in Neumünster and on January 12th/13th 1971 at Windrose-Dumont Studio Hamburg. Rights Society: GEMA. Other Versions (5 of 11) View All. Cat.

Rockoper Profitgier Live. Rockoper Profitgier Live.
Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. This CD certainly compliments the ideas developed on Floh de Cologne's GEIERSYMPHONIE album. On Profitgeier (Profit Vulture), you have a LIVE PREFORMANCE, of a ROCK OPERA. Again, over half of the album is spoken over music, or drones. There isnt much singing. Also, the lyrics are ALL in german.
