german punk! 1980! the ramrods! schickeria, schweine und bonzen!

area code 0511: hannover. though the ramrods are claiming to have been part of the bellmouthed punksceneofcrime of northwestgermany nobody and nooone had ever heard of them. burt anyway: they fit. and they predated bands like the 39 clocks for almost a year or two. their music is very primitive german punk: intoxicating tonsteinescherben from the seventies and heading and vibrating across the anarchist tradition of obscure german un-punk releases from the early eighties like grauzone west, zonenrandgebeat or fischplattler: great punks they were!
four tracks of their music survived on a crackling seven inch and you will get to hear them all: plastick-ska, anarchraut, kindergartenpunk: loud for you!

01- schön war die zeit
02 - no matter (you'd better listen before you download, you'd better click here!!!)
03 - heart, heart
04 - i don't know

the denims - do the adler sock! 1965 rammrotz punk!

the bad, very bad, fair, worne condition of this record is part of the concept: you will hear noise and noise and noise: 1965 punk noise meeting up with 2014 digital noise and it's noise: please enjoy! the ohio denims released five or six singles in 1965 and 1966, this was their second. the a-side of 'the adler sock' was rereleased on some of these 60s-rarestunes-coumpilation-serieses but the b-side remained unreleased until now as far as i know. for your listening pleasure i folded the a- and b-side into one long track as the denims would have liked it.

somebody called me on the phone: the ramones live in deutschland 1990

PLAY LOUD! the ramones somewhere live in germany 1990: a 7"-vinyl-bootleg that was released in an edition of 500 copies and you all got one, haven't you? burrrrt then. never mind nevermind: here and now you cain listen to what they have done: four wellknown songs, played way too fast and one joey who can not adaequietly follow their speednoise and who can not remember the lyrics correctedly and who is more than cooler than youhoo whilst stumberling and ignoring thee rhythmness and rhymesslessness of the soungs, baby!
four soungs, recorded live in germany 1990, with joey singing, johnny on guitar, marky on drumns and c.j. on bass: inapprehensible as they always were and are and and and i always percipienced the ramones as ambient music,  härteste möbelbeschallung, yeahyeah to go!

02 - somebody put something in my dream
03 - rockaway beach
04 - do you wanna dance?

GANG WAR! wayne kramer and johnny thunders live in 1980! BLUESROCK!

recorded live at the new york max's kansas city on the 5th of may 1980: gang war was featuring wayne kramer and johnny thunders rocking all down the drain with some songs the new york dolls, e=mc5 or the rolling stones would never have been able to play any better. and though these recordings later on were released as a complete performance on cd, this is what we got in 1987: four songs on a crackling blue vinyl semi-bootleg and we loved it.
gang war in 1980 were ron cooke on bass, john morgan on drums and of course johnny thunders and wayne kramer on guitar and vocals. this was half speed (speed!) blues punk and we loved it. listen to this:

01 - new york city
02 - i'd much rather be with the boys
03 - endless party
04 - just because i'm white...

do i have to tell you more? no, i don't. and i won't.

this is what the german neue deutsche welle did to amon düül 2 in the late seventies and the early eighties: some mediocre songs and one little-tiny sensation that is absolutely sensational: olaf konfetti and asphaltnacht for your pleasure

olaf and lothar and john and any more and any one who was in amon düül 2 in the early seventies and wanted to stay anonymiously in the early eighties: here we go! it's not so funny on the hindsight: here are two of many ways the members of amon düül 2 tried to earn some money.
first on we got olaf konfetti which of course is olaf kübler, the saxophon player and technical advisor of amon düül 2 in the early seventies: he was a member of the tabarins, klaus doldinger's passport (almost every sunday you can hear him play saxophone on the title score of 'tatort' on german television) and utopia in these days; later on he was part of the german 'new wave' and disappeared in many of rare recordings: here is one of those, folded into one as one:

seondly we have got lothar meid, who has been playing bass with in some of the versions of amon düül 2 in the early seventies and was in many other bands (being part of the 'tatort' was only one of the many much more appearances he got) and he loved being there but not here. here you can hear him as a part of the band that soundtracked for the film 'asphaltnacht' in 1981: the title song is rather lame, but the b-side is quite a sensation: more wire than you could ever and even wire as you might have suspected what so ever!

german free jazz legend albert mangelsdorff starting off rather conventional in 1958: when jazz became irrational...

yeah, great: the albert mangelsdorff jazztett: prae-prae-prae-kraut 1958: boroding and convisionentional soontobecome free jazz: the german version of conconservative coltrane-innervonations: two tunes i found on a 7"-vinyl-record i found in the black holes of my collection: albert mangelsdorff (trombone), emil mangelsdorff (alto-sax; his brother, of course, who was part of the implementing peermutation of  christianitiorgenous music into music whatsoever), joki freund (tenor), dusko goykovic (trumpet), pepsi auer (piano), peter trunk (bass) and rudi sehring on drums. alas, you know them all!
listen to din a-bop (written by joki freund) and tower blues (written by pepsi auer)

unlimited systems, berlin, spring 1980: heroine driven rhythm machine and noise

i saw the unlimited systems once way back in west-berlin in 1980 and bought their ep directly from their singeress the moment their performance had ended: they were boring and inspiring the same time: pluckering early eighties machines built up a wall of noise and marianne vocalized way above in the ghastly manner women (were they selfconscious or not) had to mumble and scream in these days: we knew better, of course (nico, mo tucker, renate knaupp), but we still loved her. the unlimited systems in 1980 were marianne enzensberger on vocals, ian wright huddling tapes and homad electronic devices, lena japan on guitars and ulli reetz on saxophone: i have no idea who played the bass or the second guitar: but in the age of the extinction of the author (and this was ages before tekkkNO took place) this did not matter at all.
for your pleasure here is the ep i bought the moment the unlimited systems ceased to play that evening: you get:

01 - in the morning
02 - koks kino
03 - longueur monotone
koks kino, though it is embarASSing as it is, references to the velvet underground (as all of their music does of course), and longueur monotone is a way too short wonderful noise. the rest is up to you and you know it all: the 39 clocks, nico, suicide, die mütter, robert rental, silver apples and chicory tip. enjoy!
