    ABSTRACT NYMPHO

    Static

    [engl] Abstract Nympho is a dream-noise outfit from Berlin consisting of Rahel Preisser (Vocals/Trumpet/Noise-interventions) and Ghazi Barakat aka Pharoah Chromium (Rauschpfeif /Electric Wind Instrument). Abstract Nympho was formed spontaneously on the occasion of a Pharoah Chromium gig at the Haperende Mens festival in Rotterdam in January 2018. At first using a poem by the Berlin poet Scardanelli (who also happens to be Rahel’s father) over improvised layers of noise and psychedelia, the pair’s sound quickly evolved into unusual live interpretations of songs by Jane Birkin and Hawkwind and free form improvisations on electronics, trumpet, rauschpfeife and vocals. After playing a series of shows in small underground venues in Berlin and a legendary performance in Jean Tinguely’s Cyclop sculpture in the woods of Milly-la-Forêt they decided to shape and record their live performances into a more structured song format. The result was heard by Christian Iffland, owner of the record store Static Record and its adjacent label Static Age, who offered to release the four tracks as an EP. Using wind instruments, synths, feedbacks, an electronic tempura and the skills of Gordon W. on tablas to achieve their vision of an almost beat-free, at times dreamy, at others somber mixture of experimental pop and spoken word.

    CAGES

    A World In Song

    [engl] After a head warping intro "Men And Their Work" kicks into eight driving postpunk rockers full of angst, confidence, feminism, melody, grit and a sense of direction not commonly found in a debut album. Shit, most seasoned bands don't even make albums this coherent. It's a smart moniker as ALL HITS certainly lives up to the promise. There is a 60/40 split of familiar comfort and provocative mystery inherent in every song. You get shouted sloganeering backed with barbed melody and finessed power-ups massaged into the sweetest spots. We can't put our finger on exactly what it is that makes this record so special but whatever it is there is a lot of it. Destined to be a modern classic. Destined to be a modern classic. So much so, that Rough Trade has deemed it their "Record of the Week" for June 26th. Lovely. 300 black, 100 translucent smoky blue and 100 coke bottle clear (a Rough Trade exclusive color) 150gr copies housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket with lyrics insert and download card included.

    Airless Space

    [engl] Consumer Electronics return with a double album of all new studio recordings produced by Russell Haswell. Some wondered how the songwriting team of Philip Best and Sarah Froelich would fare after the leaving their London home to take up residency in the United States. Well, here's the answer. Recorded in San Francisco, CE deliver "Airless Space",a state-of-the-union address that does for our American cousins what the band's earlier "Estuary English" album did for a British audience poised upon the coming madness of Brexit. Unusually for CE, "Airless Space" clocks in at 60 minutes, a hexed induction for a country labouring under a presidency, that like Brexit itself, few saw coming or contemplated having to endure. Soundwise, CE have maybe mellowed the tone a touch, allowing their electronics to stretch out and breathe, whereas the frenzied and anxious vocals of Best and Froelich remain as snatched and breathless as ever. Stunningly produced by Russell Haswell and gorgeously mastered by award-winning cutting engineer Matt Colton, "Airless Space" by Consumer Electronics is their most complete and rounded statement yet.

    Die Gehirne

    Tapetopia 002: GDR Underground Tapes (1984 - 1989)

    1986 veröffentlichten die Karl-Marx-Städter Claus Löser und Florian Merkel alias Die Gehirne ihre MC “Ihre Großen Erfolge 1983-85? mit insgesamt 34 oft sehr kurzen, kratzig-rumpelnden, wütenden, morbiden, schalkhaft-skurrilen Art Punk-Hits aus den zurückliegenden Jahren, aufgenommen im Kinderzimmer und herausgebracht in 35er Auflage. Dies diente damals mehr dem Austausch mit anderen Musikern, doch unbedeutend waren die beiden, an deren Aufnahmen und Auftritten immer wieder Gastmusiker teilnahmen, keineswegs, und so gaben sie der Stadt, die heute (wieder) Chemnitz heißt, ihren etwas dicker gedruckten Ort auf der Underground-Karte der DDR. Den musikalischen Ort der Gehirne genau zu bestimmen, ist dabei allerdings nicht so einfach, wie der eher diffuse Begiff Art Punk implizieren mag. Bei einer ganzen Reihe der etwas derberen Punksongs kann man sich ein Präfix wie “Post” getrost sparen, der rustikale Lofi-Minimalismus steht dann auch gerade Stücken wie dem verstörenden Halbminüter “Amok in Watte” und dem wohl auf eine historische Schlacht anspielenden “Das Eis des Peipussees” besonders gut zu Gesicht. Über die ganze Sammlung hinweg würden solche Songs wohl etwas ermüden, aber dazu lassen die beiden es schon aufgrund ihre Lust am Experimentieren erst gar nicht kommen. Experimentiert wird u.a. mit schwindelerregenden Takten wie in “Transib”, “Mänadentanz” oder “Vierundzwanzig Zentimeter”. Auch hatten die Gehirne damals eine Schwäche für (voll-)trunkene, surreale Sounds (“Oral”, “Hirnsäge”), die wie in “Entzug” recht nah an einen Industrial reichen konnten, wie man ihn später von Genetic Transmission und ähnlichen Künstlern her kennenlernen durfte. Seltsame, aber keineswegs widersinnige Titel wie “Die Neurose des Bandwurmes” versahen die Aura der Band mit aufgeklebten Fragezeichnen, die diese wie eine dadaistische Kollage anmuten ließen, und vieles ist in unterschiedlichem Maß und auf diverse Art Zitat und Referenzen: “Motorkopf”, “The House of Rising Sun”, “Weltende”, “Todesfugen-Fragment”, “Die Maßnahmen”. lauten einige der Titel, hinter denen sich manches verbirgt, das die Musik wie die Spitze eines viel tiefer reichenden Eisbergs aussehen lässt.. Eine ihrer besonderen Stärken sind übrigens großartige Melodien, und in dem Zusammenhang ist “Traum von Arkadien” mein Höhepunkt der Sammlung, auf dem Fuß gefolgt vom an die Substanz gehende Gesang in “Ich schenk Dir”, das auf einem Text des Dichters Dominik Hollmann basiert und an allem rührt. Ende Januar erscheint die Sammlung, die neben den 3Musketieren eine der Wiederentdeckungen deutscher Punkexperimente aus dieser Zeit ist, neu als LP mit einer Auswahl an Stücken sowie als Download mit der kompletten Trackliste.

    ELECTRIC CHAIRS

    So Many Ways

    [engl] Expanded to 12" including hot edits / reworks by GARETH GODDARD aka CHERRYSTONES. In 1979, Wayne County & The Electric Chairs – the legendary punk–rock band – recorded their third album, Things Your Mother Never Told You, in London. It was produced by David Cunningham of the Flying Lizards, famous also for his work with This Heat, Michael Nyman, etc. He also played synthesizer on some of the tracks. Often compared to Bowie’s Low and Iggy Pop’s Lust For Life, the album combined the no–frills punk–rock sound of the band with the experimental production of Cunningham, showing his love for dub music and cut’n’paste / electronica. After a tour promoting the album, vocalist Wayne County along with guitar player Eliot Michaels departed the band and returned to New York, where County later emerged as Jayne County. The remaining Electric Chairs members – Val Haller, JJ Johnson and Henry Padovani (ex–Police!) – decided to continue under the Electric Chairs name. Their record label gave them just a month to find a replacement singer and write material for an album. After rehearsing with a few singers, none of which were suitable, the trio decided to go into the studio and record some tracks with Cunningham as producer. The result was the "So Many Ways" / "J’Attends Les Marines" 45, released in November 1979 by Safari Records. Here, Cunningham applied his most experimental production techniques, using electronic treatments on drums, rhythms and vocals. "So Many Ways", featuring Val on lead vocals, was far from anything else the band had previously done: an hypnotic punk–funk / no wave / synthetic pop hybrid that still sounds years ahead of its time. In 2013, it was included on the compilation "Under The Influence" by famous DJ James Glass. "J’Attends Les Marines" was a rework of "Waiting For The Marines" from the Things Your Mother album but adding a cool dub / experimental touch. Here’s the first ever vinyl reissue of this sought after punk–funk / no wave 45, featuring the original artwork but expanded to 12" format for maximum sound quality and including two exclusive edits / reworks by Electric Chairs fan and mix/edit wizard Gareth Goddard aka Cherrystones.

    HAMILTON, THOMAS

    Pieces for Kohn

    [engl] Spaced out bleeps & bloops and wild ARP synth freakouts from 1976! "Pieces For Kohn", as the title suggests, included four electronic pieces composed by Tom Hamilton as musical responses to 3–D geometric paintings by artist Bill Kohn. A renowned audio producer and electronic composer, among other many things, you’ve probably have seen Tom Hamilton’s name in the credits of many albums by Robert Ashley and on releases from labels like Lovely Music, Pogus Productions, New World Records, etc. Tom was first introduced to electronic music in 1965, while he was an undergraduate in Milwaukee, thanks to a lecture by Vladimir Ussachevsky illustrated with examples of electronic composers of the day: Bülent Arel, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre Henry, Milton Babbitt...Encouraged by his teacher, Thom David Mason, Tom started to build audio circuits and battery–operated boxes that produced or modified sounds. In 1969, Tom moved to St. Louis. After graduating at Washington University, he was offered a job to design, purchase, and build an electronic music and recording studio there. He now had continuing access to commercially built synthesizers and by the mid 1970s Tom found that working with electronic music was more satisfying to him than other musical endeavors. The idea for the "Pieces for Kohn" album came from a studio visit with St. Louis artist Bill Kohn. Tom was an admirer of his work, which combined vibrant color combinations to fulfill 3–D geometric and architectural compositions in paintings, prints, and watercolors. Bill proposed that Tom composed music for his art exhibition opening at a famous St. Louis gallery and Tom decided to simultaneously release that work on LP. Tom picked four of the paintings that he liked the most and titled his four pieces correspondingly. The recording took place at the Washington University Electronic Music / Recording Studio – the studio that Tom designed and first built in 1971 and then moved and rebuilt in 1974 (where it resides to date). The original tapes were performed at the opening of Bill Kohn’s exhibit at the Terry Moore Gallery in St. Louis, in January, 1976 and then Tom did a limited pressing of the album on his own label, Somnath Records.

    HILDEGARD VON BINGE DRINKING

    Sprechfunk mit Toten

    Hildegard von Binge Drinking sind eine dieser Bands, denen man dankbar sein muss, dass sie existieren. Existieren und Durchhalten, sie und wir, dafür bedarf es eines Soundtracks. Ein Soundtrack, der zugleich die Dimension öffnet, in der alles egal sein kann, darf, muss. Aber der ebenso die Sinne schärft für den Bullshit im Hier und Jetzt, der sich nicht ergibt in Oberflächlichkeit, Eskapismus und Pose, sondern sich im Dreck und Schweiß suhlt, ohne einen Fick darauf zu geben, was gut aussieht und was schmeckt. HvBD merkt man jene gewisse Verbundenheit an, nicht nur im technischen Mucker-Sinne, denn „tight“ waren sie schon immer, nicht nur ihre Habite. Die vier Songs auf „Sprechfunk mit Toten“ bündeln die organische Energie aus quasi hunderten Liveshows über unzählige Jahre, endlosen Sessions in muffigen Räumen, Zusammenhocken in Pilshallen, und Meditation unter krautbewachsenen Noise-Cancelling-Kopfhörerungetümen. Kraut sei nur ein läppisch dahingeworfener Referenz-Handschuh, HVBD sind so viel mehr, und so viel weiter auf der Timeline von introvertierter DIY-Kultur. Gastauftritte gibt es von Les Trucs, sowie Felix Floss an der Rotzkanne, aufgenommen wurde „Sprechfunk mit Toten“ in wenigen Tagen im heimischen Würzburg, die risografierte Verpackung stammt vom Briten Christopher Wright und ist in vier verschiedenen Druckfarben erhältlich. Grab it while you can."

    Popped Music

    [engl] Improvised, unrushed music with cello as the primary source. A single take recorded and processed through a myriad of hardware, software and NASA grade firmware 100% live and on the spot September 7th 2018 in Buffalo NY. 'Popped Music' is an untamed atmospheric obelisk of nightmarish scratching, serene melancholia and brisk paranoic tension reminiscent of a more deconstructed version of Gil Mellé's original electronic soundtrack to the Andromeda Strain. We haven't been able to pick our jaws up off the floor since we heard this, its fucking amazing. 300 copies of my 150 gram translucent red vinyl housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket adorned with artwork by J.P.

    LOS INICIADOS

    La Marca De Anubis

    [engl] LP + 7". Originally released in 1982 on the DRO label, "La Marca De Anubis" was the debut album by LOS INICIADOS, an obscure project related to legendary Spanish synth–pop band AVIADOR DRO. Always shrouded in mystery, Los Iniciados decided to hide their indentities behind masks. The only visible and confirmed member was Arco Iris (aka Marta Cervera, also on Aviador Dro) and according to rumours, behind the other nicknames we find Biovac N (Servando Carballar, founder of Aviador Dro and the DRO label) plus members of Alphaville (the Spanish post–punk band). On "La Marca De Anubis" we also find Jesús Arias (of Andalusian punk band T.N.T.) on electric guitar. The album was produced by Servando Carballar (Aviador Dro). Dark & eerie MINIMAL SYNTH / DARK WAVE sounds with a POST–PUNK edge, highly influenced by THE RESIDENTS, Dadaism, performance art and ancient Egyptian cults. Including cult classics like "Peter Pan", "Soy el vacío" and more!

    NO DRUM NO MOOG

    Documents Synthétiques

    [engl] Documents Synthétiques is an ode to vintage synthetizers and the oh so great repetitive beats that were delightfully crafted in Germany in the 70’s. In short, if you like krautrock and the progressive experimental French music scene, NO DRUM NO MOOG just might be the musical wonder you didn’t expected.? ?Can you hear the sound of the vintage synthetizer?? I mean, can you really hear it?? Of course, you’ve heard it. You can’t do without it. Once ignored and banished from the rock music scene, it’s been almost ten years since Mr Moog got back in style. And along with him, a whole wide bunch of bands celebrating more than 40?years of analogic vibrations. NO DRUM NO MOOG is one of them. NO DRUM NO MOOG is one of the best of ‘em. Blending their love for french prog and german krautrock alongside some pop and noise sensibilities, they attack you with their minimal/maximalist waves of tribal rhythms and eerie keys, taking no prisoners and embarking you on a journey to a colourful void of space and nothingness.

    Ornament & Verbrechen

    Tapetopia 001: GDR Underground Tapes (1984 - 1989)

    1988 streute die legendäre Freakwave-Formation Ornament & Verbrechen ca. 20 bis 30 Exemplare ihres „Rotmaul-Tapes“ unter Freunde. Die Band um die Gebrüder Lippok ging aus der ersten Ostberliner Punkkapelle Rosa Extra und aus dem Avantwaveprojekt Fünf Wochen im Ballon hervor. Von ihrer Gründung an lassen sich O&V als Quelle in viele Haupt- und Seitenarme des Ostberliner Undergrounds verfolgen. Bands wie Aufruhr zur Liebe oder Band-Projekte wie Corp Cruid, The Local Moon und Bleibeil entstanden im Umfeld oder aus der Zusammenarbeit mit einer Band, die wie ein offenes Haus in der geschlossenen Anstalt DDR funktionierte. 1995 formierten sich aus den bewährten Strukturen der 80er Jahre die beiden Bands und Langzeit-Experimente To Rococo Rot und Tarwater, indem sie einem Muster folgten, ohne es zu kopieren. Nach dem DDR-Infarkt 1989 glimmte das Projekt Ornament & Verbrechen weiter, züngelte an neuen Ideen und flammt bis heute immer wieder auf. Die Serie tapetopia veröffentlicht, unter Verwendung des Original-Layouts und der ursprünglichen Tracklists, Kassetten-Editionen aus dem DDR-Underground der 1980er Jahre, speziell aus der Mauerstadt-Szene Ostberlins. Über drei Jahrzehnte nach ihrer ersten „Veröffentlichung“ sind diese Tapes bisher weder auf Vinyl noch auf CD zu hören, sie mischten jedoch im Kanon der DDR-Subkultur vernehmbar mit. Im Widerspruch zu den damaligen Kleinstauflagen galten viele der Bands in gegenkulturellen Zirkeln als Kult, aber in informierten Kreisen als höchst verdächtig. tapetopia wird herausgegeben von Henryk Gericke. Geplante Veröffentlichungen in der tapetopia-Serie: Die Gehirne (Karl-Marx-Stadt), Klick & Aus (Berlin), The Local Moon (Berlin) und Corp Cruid (Berlin).

    PIG HEART TRANSPLANT

    For Mass Consumption

    [engl]  Pig Heart Transplant is the alter ego of Jon Kortland, one half of the men that comprise the surgical Powerviolence duo Iron Lung. Like Iron Lung, Pig Heart Transplant delivers both a vicious beating and violent outcome, however the operating methodology is an entirely different animal; slow, churning, industrial, electronic, painfully percussive, a bureaucratic nightmare of State Power with gears grinding the individual into a hallow shell, perfectly molded into one of Them. This is 1984. For Mass Consumption is composed of 28 tracks, each approximately 44 seconds long, each song title a 4 letter word, structured in a perfectly palatable way for optimum group adoption and mindless adherence to common purpose. Electronic manipulation, no wave guitar noise, abrasive hammering and eerie synthetic ambience imbue the listener with the seedy malaise of manipulation on a societal scale. One might recognize the pulverizing brutality of early Swans on tracks like ‘Film’ or ‘Pigs’, the pulsing throb of Brighter Death Now and IRM on ‘Coma’ or even Robert McNaugton’s soundtrack work for Henry: Portrait Of Serial Killer on ‘1970’ or ‘1980’. Without doubt a horrifying work of aural terror, For Mass Consumption is the logical result of a culture bent on banal conformity and the futile struggle against its domination. Iron Lung Records is pleased to bring this tormented future vision into the present.

    REQUIEM

    For a World After

    [engl] Dark progressive synth ambient meet Berlin-School sounds on this privately pressed, conceptual album which “tells the story of a world annihilation through nuclear war”. “Requiem” is full of delayed psychedelic electric guitar, effects, cold drum machines, waves of analog keyboards (Korg MS20, Casioton ct201, Crumar DS-2, Jupiter-4…) and cosmic atmosphere. George Speckert is a conceptual electronic composer based in Hannover but of North American origin. Working as a music teacher in Germany in the 70s, he started to write and produce music in his spare time, inspired by the European rock and electronic scenes of the time (Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Jean Michel Jarre, Emerson Lake & Palmer, etc). He met another American expat, David Cassidy (no, not THAT David Cassidy), who ran a small record label / studio. That’s when “Requiem” started to take form. A chance meeting with a terrific guitar player named Massimo Grandi, led to Massimo adding some amazing electric guitar to the album. After six months, “Requiem” was finally released in a private edition of 1000 copies on the small Daviton label.

    Greater Success In Apprehension & Convictions

    [engl] Originally released in a very limited edition during 1983. The RJF album has gone onto achieve legendary status amongst both collectors and fans of 80's murky Industrial underground music. Crawling out from the dark heart of Gothenburg, Sweden to no fanfare whatsoever, this record now commands a high three figure sum on the very scarce occasions it actually appears for sale. It is now considered to be one of the true corner stones of Swedish dark electronic music and , unlike a lot of obscure records from the same period, with very good reason. The record just oozes ill intent from all seven tracks. It's riddled throughout with a grim lo-fi electronic minimalism that makes the record so effective. The tracks run the gauntlet of sparse programmed beats, sustained heavy distortion that oscillates and weaves its way around monotone depressive and painful vocal outbursts as it crawls off back into its dark corner. There's no love to be found here. This reissue comes courtesy of Harbinger Sound. Original artwork and extensive sleevenotes as ever.

    T.R.A.S.E

    Electronic Rock

    [engl] Known amongst a small group of teenage friends as T.R.A.S.E. (Tape Recorder And Synthesiser Ensemble) this previously unearthed and fully formed electronic music project was spearheaded by a 16-year-old school- boy as an extension of his woodwork, metalwork and science classes in 1981. Composed and recorded using a self-made synth, audio mixer and elec- tronic percussion units T.R.A.S.E would bridge the gap between a love for sci-fi horror soundtracks, Gary Numan b-sides and an extra curricular hobby as a sound and lighting designer for school plays - bequeathing a backstory as unique and unfathomable as the individualistic sonic results that he would finally commit to C90. Having successfully recorded his only solo album, Electronic Rock (which was never duplicated beyond his own demo copy), this early musical achievement by Andy Popplewell stands up as a rare self-initiated example of embryonic experimental electro pop and genuine outsider music, marking the early domestication of synthesisers and the dawn of electronic home recording studios and the uninhibited results. Unhindered by adult concepts like self-consciousness, popular snobbery, fashion, pride and fear of failure (while funded by paper rounds and odd jobs in his Mancunian community), Andy, armed with the plans to the Chorosynth kit module, an old junk shop piano keyboard and some hand-me-down tools from his recently deceased dad, would fill an exercise book with plans, arrangements and self-penned new wave pop lyrics to fully realise the potential of his one-man synthetic symphony. Reaping the benefits of his own stencilled circuit boards and soldering iron skills (whilst occasionally enlisting the part time help of his younger brother on guitar) T.R.A.S.E’s homemade technology pop continued to bloom right up until the very cusp of adolescence when careers officers and real life responsi- bilities saw the end of Andy's reel to reel multitracking which is finally pre- sented here for the first time since it was sung and played. This ambitious cross section of robotic funk and moody soundscape sequences makes instrumental nods to John Carpenter and Kraftwerk next to unpolished vocal drones worthy of a sedated Human League or Joy Divison, all of whom shared radio dial digits amongst Giorgio Moroder, Tubeway Army and The Glitter Band as Popplewell’s clearest unabashed influences. The T.R.A.S.E tapes, finally unearthed by Finders Keepers, show the full extent of the projects repertoire before the "group's" final hiatus which, for Andy, was followed by a working education in London under BBC employ- ment as a trainee radio engineer (not far from the closed door of the Radiophonic Workshop) which has since led to a widespread reputation as one of the country’s leading independent tape engineers/editors/archivists indiscriminately splicing and baking vintage tapes for anyone in-between Alpha in Brussels and ZTT in London. Having worked with hundreds of reputable studios, pop stars and media companies throughout his career Andy claims he has rarely been asked about his own musical history in 30 working years, Finders Keepers are glad we Popped that very question.

    V/A

    Science Fiction Park Bundesrepublik

    [engl] In the summer of 1982, in a cottage in the Bavarian forest a thirteen-year-old boy sits with his brother on the sofa and stares at the television. What he sees will transform his life. In rapid, revue-like sequences, young costumed people jump around in front of a painted background. They serenade tulips that are sparingly lit, twist and stretch under rubber sheets and with eyes taped over, iron on empty boards. Sometimes they just stand there, staring brazenly or absently into the camera, cryptic texts intoning through stiff mouths. The entire spectacle might be a direct transmission from Mars. The music accompanying all this is so radically new that the terminology to describe it doesn’t exist yet. Most of all, it is unexpectedly bizarre, minimalistic and electronic. The astonishing performance is garnished by four amateurish dancers obviously assigned to the musicians by a decree of the TV broadcaster. Nothing fits together, yet the combination is pure genius. The demeanor of the group is so shockingly modern and uncompromising that the boy in front of the television has to repeatedly pinch himself to prove he isn’t dreaming. This is the music he has waited years for. This is his music, and it sets off a catalytic spark in him. His little brother is drafted to write down the names of the bands Palais Schaumburg, Der Plan, Deutsch- Amerikanische Freundschaft, Lorenz Lorenz, Der Körper und die Seele (The Body And The Soul)... One can imagine the creative spelling that made it on to the list. Back home in Hamburg, as if possessed, the boy begins to experiment with a synthesiser, home organ, and voice and tape recorder. He is not the only one to begin explorations in this direction. The entire Federal Republic of Germany is just at the boiling point. A new form of home music is coming into existence. It has nothing to do with violin playing children, scratchy sweaters and well- combed relatives listening on the sofa, but rather combines the fears and dark abyss of industrial society. Remarkably it is the same industry that made the tools available to the raging youths: cheap Casio keyboards, synthesisers, drum computers and four track tape recorders. Suddenly anyone can acquire his own means of production to use in protest against the industrial forces. In Germany especially, that neurotic country whose dark Nazi past and subsequent East/West division filled its closet with skeletons, the electro-industry’s advance falls on fertile ground. The four-track tape studio becomes the medium of the collective unconscious; becomes the embrasure, the lighting rod and the magnetic witness to the fears of an imminent nuclear war. On top of that most of the recordings are born without strategy or intention of commercial exploitation. They are eruptions out of the crater of a society that had reached a deadlock during the so-called German Autumn with its failed RAF movement. Everyone was waiting... But for what? For the end of the world, approaching via an insane arms race? A new youth movement? A new kind of ice cream? In their freshly established home studios the protagonists practice the new underground music, the “undirected aggression of liberated sounds,” as Frank Apunkt Schneider expressed in his book Als die Welt noch unterging (As The World Was Still Ending). Everything that isn’t nailed or riveted down is used as an instrument: baking trays, cartons, room lamps, toys, wooden flutes, whistles, cans, trays, record players, televisions, a doorbell, a telephone. Out of the living rooms of the nation drones an obsession with noise, sparing not even the children. And what became of that thirteen-year-old boy who sat in front of the television back then? He hasn’t had a television for the last twenty-five years and is just now writing these lines. His enthusiasm for the cassette scene has remained to this day. And while collecting the pieces for this compilation he had to keep pinching himself in the arm.
