va - Asperando A Gogo - 20 Golden Krautzuck Hits

This magnificent bootleg LP from 1997 is a well-selected collection of raw obscurities from below the Neue Deutche Welle/industrial/no wave DIY unterirdisch of late 1970's to early 1980's Germany. Most tracks were lifted from 7" singles and every one is a brain-scratching winner.  These are not the new wave anthems of ZickZack or anything as polished as arena-filling DAF, Fehlfarben, or Einsturzende Neubauten. This is the sound of real punk noise by heroes such as Boss & Beusi (Boss Peter Braatz would rename himself Harry Rag and both members would go on to form the mighty SYPH), Luxus (featuring Christine Hahn, also of Malaria! and Glenn Branca's band The Static), Freider Butzmann (still quite active today, with a recent LP on PAN), Permutative Distortion (aka P.D., later to start the Selektion label and rename themselves P16.D4), Phonophobia (Very Good Records would release a very good LP collecting their music of this era), and unknowns Notorische Reflexe, Saab, Katastrophentheorie and Mron Euen. If you liked the "I Hate the Pop Group" LP, which kinda served the same purpose for the British no-fans scene of the same era, then this is exactly the kind of dirt you want to rub all over your ears.
