ROTER STERN-L'AFRIQUE-REVISITED...AFARS & ISSAS ET LES PAYS AU-DELA, 12" EP, 2003 (RECORDED: 1980-2003), GERMANY
As requested, here's an extraordinary and atypical Neue Deutsche Welle treasure culling material from a span of 23 years, though I expect much of it's period material spit polished at a later date. Roter Stern (otherwise known as Roter Stern Belgrad) were perhaps best known for their contributions to the 3-band 3x12" boxset compendium "Massa", which I'll get around to posting soon-ish. On "L'Afrique...", they concoct highly musical constructs that fuse rubbery mutant funk to Hassell-ish fourth-world-isms and crisp drum machines to warping synth textures in an idiosyncratic formulation thats uniquely theirs alone.
