ALPHABETICAL UPLOADS OF WHACKED OUT SINGLES PT. 7

What follows is the seventh installment in my ongoing series of postings of singles from the vdoandsound archives.






DEUTSCHE ANARCHISTEN TAUMELN BENOMMEN EINEN SCHRITT ZUR SEITE-S/T, 2x7" E.P.'S, 2003 (RECORDED: EARLY 80'S), GERMANY
Wide ranging and uneven but sometimes tremendous Neue Deutsche Welle archival document (the first of four NDW titles in today's installment) with a guitar 'n' rhythm box-centric approach to minimal synthiness thats vaguely Metal Urbain-like.




DEUTSCHER TANZABEND (D.U.R.)-DEUTSCHLAND BRENNT/MASCHINENMUSIK/BERICHT AUS DER BEAMTENKULTUR, 1981, GERMANY
Intense and fascinating minimal synth into synth punk Neue Deutsche Welle frenzy with Dark Day overtones.




THE DIAGRAM BROTHERS-WE ARE ALL ANIMALS/I WOULD LIKE TO LIVE IN PRISON/THERE IS NO SHOWER, 1980, UK
Not quite on a level with their stunning "Some Marvels Of Modern Science" LP posted by Jim a while back, this single nevertheless offers an appealing (if prototypical) burst of twitchy mutant funk inflected UK DIY post punk.




DISQUE OMO-WER MITTEN IM LEBEN STEHT E.P., 1981, GERMANY
Half negligible, half astonishing, this obscure and schizophrenic Neue Deutsche Welle project suddenly veer into much more fertile and surreal waters after an generic opening gambit, Elhektrisch and Heute 20.15 Bilanz both plying a wonderfully woozy pitching and warping distension of minimal synth modalities before suddenly reverting to the land of the uninspired.
Go figure.



THE DOGMA CATS-EXPERTS/CHOKE, 1980, UK
Excellent UK post punk DIY moves with distinct Athletico Spizz 80 overtones.




FRANK DOMMERT & H.N.A.S.-HUNSRUCK/RAMON DER MONSTERJUNGE, 1987, GERMANY
Wonderfully warped NWW-like surrealist malarky from Heemann & Flamm, here in collaboration with Frank Dommert, who's exceptional Kiefermusik LP was posted here by Jim a while back.




ANDREAS DORAU-DER LACHENDE PAPST, 1981, GERMANY
Nothing like the smurfy cuteness of his work with his Die Doraus Und Die Marinas, This brief first single of Neue Deutche Welle figurehead Dorau proffers pure Residential doink in top notch style.

Repeatedly listening to Disque Omo. This is plain fantastic! I would just call it Art Pop. Thank you very much!
