PSUEDOELEKTRONIXX-C'EST LE TON...QUI FAIT LA MUSIQUE, TAPE, 1982, GERMANY





Stripped and punchy mutant funky minimal synth (or, as the cover would have it, "free funk no wave") from the deepest recesses of Neue Deutsche Welle tape culture. Pseudoelektronixx pitch their sonic tents over forcefully fore-grounded funk-a-poppin' bass machinations, and flank it with cheaply clonking rhythm boxes, synth blip and the requisite hectoring vocalese. If this all sounds like it'd be somewhat textbook NDW, well...perhaps it is, but though the opening salvo of this 4 track EP isn't likely to raise too many pulses, this does work up a nice head of steam for those sold on this scene.

Will someone explain to me what textbook NDW means?

textbook = by the book; a typical example.

NDW = Neue Deutsche Welle = new German wave
