Experimental German group, formed in West Berlin in 1980. The band is notable for predominantly using custom built instruments constructed out of scrap metal and power tools.
Their name in English literally means Collapsing New Buildings, where New Buildings describes a type of architecture common in post-WWII Germany (large concrete box-style buildings) and Collapsing is an adjective in this context, not a verb.
