V/A-SCHAU HOR MAIN HERZ IST RHEIN, LP, 1981, GERMANY









Long a cornerstone Neue Deutsche Welle collectable, this seminal slab of wax largely documents the more strident and vingery end of the NDW continuum. Aside from containing essential early P16.D4 material (still in rock fragmentation mode at this early stage), this also features vital contributions from Christoph Anders' pre-Cassiber unit Toto Lotto and the exceedingly bleak and crabby No Aid, both of whom have had releases posted on MS. Elsewhere, Jean Gilbert contributes the dourest slog through disjointed teutonic sturm und drang on the album and Frohliche Eiszeit do precisely the opposite, offering a sublime trifecta of giddy drum machine-led post punk bleep and blurt abetted by unexpectedly lovely sax that launch the proceedings in high style.

NOTE: after ten separate failed attempts to upload this file to Massmirror including re-zipping the file twice, all ending in messages of "invalid file upload" (no idea what the hell thats all about), I decided to, in this ONE instance, use Rapidshare again in order to share this treasure with you.

Thanks.

No Aid are nifty. Can you post their "TV" 7" (or anything else that they did)?
