Reinhold Heil's wild synth solo

Heil was once a member of Spliff (former Nina Hagen Band) playing synthesizers. Now, making soundtracks to films such as Land of the Dead, Perfume, Paris j'taime, Run Lola Run etc...
On the second Nina Hagen (Unbehagen) album he did an amazing solo that stands out as probably the best synth solo over a rock groove.
The song Wir Leben Immer Noch, was originally a cover of Lene Lovich' Lucky Number.
Listen to Wir Leben Immer Noch (mp3)

After Nina Hagen quit the band in search of UFO's, Spliff cut some more records on their own. Here's Computers Sind Doof (mp3) from 85 555. See also my previous post on The Spliff Radio Show.
