AG GEIGE-TRICKBEAT, LP, 1989, GERMANY (DDR)




Thanks to Helga Cruel for supplying this excellent and previously unknown to me slice of East German minimal synthy weirdity, very much Der Plan's DDR doppelgangers, albeit around a decade too late to get in on the NDW action that their sensibility so reeks of, though the sorta emulator-ish Residential-ism's of France's Ptose are certainly in play here too, with Commodore 64 videogame-y bloop 'n' bleep and smurfy cartoonish synth progressions offsetting much emphatic spieling.
Top notch nuttiness.

They are now Byetone and Frank Bretschneider releasing minimal music with beats on the raster-noton label.

Thanks a LOT!

However...
this is a crippled version. Believe it or not, the full version was ONLY released on MusiCassette !!!
For both the LP and the CD version of "Trickbeat", they omitted a couple of songs, e. g. (my personal favorite) "Nachts Unterwegs" a cover by the Juergen Kerth Band. So if anyone has that song (B8 on the MC), please post it! Thanks! -- andy --
