Hey confucius, I saw your comment at 'Closet Of Curiosities'. Sorry for the confusion, I sent you an email Saturday explaining that that dex was FOR you (thus your DJ name) if...you were interested. Email me at cgibson777(at)aol(dot)com with an email address that I can reach you if you want. (I used the one from your profile, does it not work?) The appearance at muse's site was a 'plan b', just looking for some collaboration ;-)

As you said you where interested in early ndw stuff - late 70s to early 80s German electro - experimental - dunno - how - to - name - it - music, here are some nice blogs for the weirder part of German Krautrock ;)

PS: go to the last adress, where you can find the complete discography of Die Tödlich Doris (VERY EXPERIMENTAL BAND FROM ALEMAGNE) - you have to go there via the web-archive link - the mp3's are not there actually, but they're still active, if you find them ----- and the web archive archives nearly everything. try it!

thanks very much for the links Mr. Lucky M.

I've just been turned on to some early Tietchens Synth-Kraut period stuff... great!

about NDW, I'm actually looking for more pop and dance friendly stuff rather than the strange improvised end of things. but I always love some weird germans as well! :D

thanks again

oh my god this is hillarious stuff Mr. Lucky M!

from the first link:

"Summary: The second album from Scala 3 was released in 1982 and did again nothing in the charts. Also I guess the band didn't play to much concerts. A hell lot of records were released during that period from groups nobody heard of before and after. And a good percentage of these records were just produced for tax reduction reasons which means bands were send to studios to produce records that were not promoted but just paid for so the record companies didn't have to pay too much tax for their incredible record sales of Trio, Hubert Kah, Joachim Witt, Ideal etc. Also I guess Scala 3 smoked a lot during the production otherwise they wouldn't have come up with lyrics like "on top of the world / where no cap stops / comes the iguana / with the opium"."

AHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
