Neue Duetsche Welle
This is the second cassette I found at my work labelled "Neue Duetsche Welle." I had originally planned on uploading them both, but lost the first one in a move. It's not too much of a loss though, the first one was kind of bloated with boring pop hits rather than the weird stuff. I think this one may be the superior tape, though I'm a little confused as to why it's labelled as an NDW mix. The first few songs definitely fill the bill, but then the tape veers off into straight-up punk territory, hitting all sorts of different sounds and styles. There's some trashy shit, hardcore, pop-punk, post-punk and even some kbd styled tracks. I have no idea what any of these songs are, except for the Dead Kennedy's California Über Alles (!?). The cassette came from a collection of tapes donated to the library I work at decades ago. Most of the tapes are german language lessons, german comedians, or german classical music. It's all fun stuff to go through and clean up and whatnot but this is some gold right here. Whoever put this together did a great job and taped it all off vinyl so it sounds pretty fantastic. If anybody can give me some info about any of these tracks please hit me up.
update: maggothead totally hooked it up with tracklist. It's still missing a few tracks, but I got most of it filled out and re-upped the download with the updated metadata. PEACE!
some french dude claimed rights to some song on here, i don't even know how that's possible. fucking whatever email me if you want a link.
