THE WIRTSCHAFTSWUNDER-TSCHERWONEZ, LP, 1982, GERMANY




Between us, Jim and I have posted numerous titles that Neue Deutsche Welle legend Tom Dokoupil has been involved in over the years, including Die Partei, Siluetes 61 and Radierer. The work to be found on this, the third LP from his multi-national unit Wirtschaftswunder (graciously provided by blog friend Felix Kubin, whose work in the project Spiders On Phasing I've also posted today) is every bit the equal of those iconic units, but while their impossibly clever post punk exploits may emerge from the more Ralph/Residential-indebted end of the NDW continuum, their restless muse extends well beyond the zany remit that may suggest. Tscherwonez (a soundtrack to Gabor Altorjay's film of the same name) over it's course takes in everything from Pyrolator and Andi Giorbino-like cartoonish candy coated electropop to stark Factory Records-like post punk angularity, with side-tracks into oompah and schlager kitsch, synth pop settings for horror film strings and campy carnival organ-a-go-go pop giddiness ala the L.A.F.M.S. outfit Human Hands. Sensational and essential.

Although I've visited your site many times, I've thoughtlessly never expressed my admiration for the work all of you do. Press-on, you're magnificent, and thank you!

about 20 years ago Felix Kubin hosted a late night radio show on Canada's CBC radio. He played Girls Of The Navy from this album. The whole set was so cool I had to park the car. I emailed CBC the next day and asked how I could get some of this music. They said they didn't know, that Felix probably whipped the show up in his hotel room.
I have been looking for "Girls Of The Navy" for 20 years. Thank you so much.
