STRAFTAT-SCHON WIEDER ODER DIE GUTEN ALTEN ZEITEN!, TAPE, 1982, GERMANY








Roughshod dadaist emissions (housed in an equally scrappy cover) from this long forgotten mob of Neue Deutsche Welle genial dilettantes that suspends the listener in a protracted backwash of tape fucked gargling and gooning, befuddling extended passages of low level radio interference, snatches of vivisected song structure, pots 'n' pans percussion workouts and cockamamie vocal loops constructs, all yoked together with that intangible x-factor that separates untutored brilliance from rank amateurism. Note: I did the best I could with my transcription of the song titles, but the scribbled German text didn't make it easy, so I'm sure there are errors to be found...

Thank you: the packaging looks interesting as well--kinda reminds me of Zoviet France's early ceramic tape boxes. Interesting stuff, as always.
