Singles


A stand alone single was released in 1984 called "Die Braut und der Matrose", released on 7 inch and in Austria on Catalogue number EMI Columbia 1333337. Although this song isn't on the album, it is actually a variation of the album title "Aloahe". The B side featured a variation of this track called "Version Mandy und die Rehleins" (Mandy and Deer Flax Version).

Again in 1984, on 7 inch and in Austria only, "Go Karli Go" was released on catalogue number EMI Columbia 1333457. B side featured "Wir jetten".
