Die Baader-Meinhof Gruppe / Red Army Faction

Die Baader-Meinhof Gruppe / Red Army Faction is Joshua David Richardson with a revolving door of collaborators.

DBMG/RAF is a chance for musicians and multi-media artists to explore the use of violence within their chosen medium for the expressed purpose of destroying the economic, social, and artistic structures imposed on them by Late 20th and 21st Century Capitalism. It is inspired by the actions of West-Germany’s Red Army Faction (also known as the Baader-Meinhof Group), which sought the violent overthrow of West-Germany’s post-war governments from the 1970’s until its official disbandment in 1998.

die Baader-Meinhof Gruppe / Red Army Faction has appeared on bills alongside Alexander Hacke (Einsturzende Neubauten), the Nihilist Spasm Band, and Tony Conrad.
