the vibrators. live 1977. bis an die grenzen übersteuert. knalllaut.

nichts was ihr nicht sowieso schon in der sammlung habt: and of course you can find this one in your own collection. but most of you will never have heard it THAT loud: a german promo single released or not released in august 1977: the vibrators live executing london girls and stiff little fingers (missprinted on the label as "stiff little singers"): und an manchen tagen wie heute=jetzt sind die vibrators die am häüfigsten nicht=gehörte band jener zeit. egal for you. a serious cryme. here we go:

london girls
stiff little fingers

Bomis Prendin was on Steven Stapleton's famous Nurse with Wound List -- and Karen Cooper Complex descended from Bomis Prendin.

We refer to it as "Analog Music from a Lost World" -- previously unreleased post-punk experimental rock from 1981, unlike anything else recorded before or after.

"...a comment i had from an anonymous friend made me to move my old fat ass and write about this unique lost treasure, post-punk mixed with avant-rock, filled with spastic rhythms and synths in a very New York-ish manner, something like a No Wave Beefheart, if he was a female..." -- buginthecity.blogspot.com

"It's amazing!" -- Gibraltar Encyclopedia of Progressive Rock

"...distorted echoes of prophets, and Border Breakers..." -- I Wanna Rock You Baby Blog (Hungary)

"Shinjuku Birdwalk" bodes something approaching fractured genius, and does little to disappoint." -- sibLINGSHOT ON THE BLEACHERS Blog

"...five seconds into the first tune on KCC's "Shinjuku Birdwalk," no recommendations were necessary. Hail, yeah, y'all, let's break some waves... -- unterkayness.blogspot.com

"...some hefty grooves, and plenty of 'holy shit" moments'. It's a spacious but highly rewarding listen, and I wouldn't be surprised if some label makes an effort to press this on vinyl in the near future." -- ongakubaka.blogspot.com

"Hopefully, some enterprising reissue label will snatch this one up, as it's too good to exist only in the ephemeral form of a download." -- Mutant Sounds

"This is amazing stuff and we would be honored to feature it in wfmu's curated portal on the free music archive. I'm very sorry for our slow response, we have a lot of stuff to wade through to find gems like these."
