V.A. – Teutonik Disaster EP 2 (12″)

Release: 10 October 2003
Cat#: Gomma 028

This is a 7 track vinyl version of the whole CD compilation. (A first 4 track ep was out 2 months ago). Extremly rare german music from late 70ies & early 80ies that mixes the Punk & New Wave attitude of these days with Funk, Disco & Ska. These bands really were ahead of its time. These tracks did have nothing to do with the (in)famous Neue deutsche Welle hype of early 80ies (99 luftballons). What you hear on this 12“ are bands who are totally unknown even in Germany.

A1) Explorer – Yellow Power
A2) The Tanzdiele – Musik
A3) Reifenstahl – Je T’air
B1) BBB – Alltag (Munk Edit)
B2) 50 Tabletten – Am Abend im Land der Träume
B3) Schwarze Bewegung – Traumfrau
B4) Exkurs – Steril


V.A. – Teutonik Disaster EP 1 (12″)

Release: 10 September 2002
Cat#: Gomma 025

This is an EP–Vinyl with 4 Clubtracks from the Teutonik Disaster CD–Album. A collection of rare German Discopunk recorded late 70ies till early 80ies. Tracks from bands that were not part of the famous “Neue deutsche Welle” – Hype from these days, but did much more interesting music – extremly ahead of its time. Doesn’t this music sound like a mixture of today’s Radio 4, Daniel Wang and the DFA – stuff – in a German way? (“It might be 20 years old, but everyone will talk about THIS Popmusic.” NME) (“Full marks to the Munk – Boys for this!” Trevor Jackson/ Playgroup)

A1) Explorer – Rabbits
A2) Carmen – Schlaraffenland
B1) Exkurs – Fakten sind Terror
B2) Scala – Irrsinn in Dub
