DIE CHAOS COMBO-MINIROCK, TAPE, 1984, GERMANY




Powerfully disorienting Der Plan-worthy minimal synth brilliance by a crew of nutters whose chromosomes have been permanently warped by their proximity to Planet Ralph. Minirock is both a real high water mark of the Neue Deutsche Welle tape scene and a rather anomalous phenomenon, as 1984 was pretty late in the game for this breed of cantankerous NDW abnormality mongering, but someone forgot to alert this gang, who pull it all off effortlessly like the consummate freaks they are over the course of this lengthy c90 tape, though not before finding time for a headscratching 20 minute detour into lumbering caveman lurch and splatter that makes the Nihilist Spasm Band sound like Starcastle.
