Tapete re-issues the legendary second album by Hamburg's avant/new wave electro-pop band, Palais Schaumburg, originally released in 1982, and now released on CD for the very first time. Shortly after the release of their debut album, founding member Holger Hiller left the band, and was replaced by lyricist/vocalist Walter Thielsch. Produced by Andy "Sugar Coated" Hernandez in New York and Zürich, Lupa further established the band as "great German pop constructionists" (NME) with some newly-added jazz-funk fuelled horns. This re-issue of the original album includes three bonus tracks and an extensive 24-page booklet with artwork by Walter Thielsch himself, as well as private photos, press clippings, and extensive liner notes. The original photos for Lupa were taken by Anton Corbijn, whose first video effort was for "Hockey." Twenty-seven years after its original release, Lupa still sounds fresh and vibrant today (the album was remastered by veteran engineer, Willem Makkee), having lost none of its urgency and avantgardist, jazz-infused charm.
