Slapp Happy is a German/English avant-pop group, formed in Germany in 1972. Their lineup consists of Anthony Moore (keyboards), Peter Blegvad (guitar) and Dagmar Krause (vocals). The band members moved to England in 1974 where they merged with Henry Cow, but the merger ended soon afterwards and Slapp Happy split up. Slapp Happy's sound is characterised by Dagmar Krause's unique vocal style.

“Slapp Happy are a trio of incandescent talent, brilliant and witty and deeply knowledgable about the further reaches of art in the 20th century – which gives their work real authority. Performed in a way that's totally accessible, like the best cabaret.” – Robert Wyatt
