ABSTRACT NYMPHO- Static EP - 12" - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge Limited edition of 300 copies on green-marble-colored vinyl! A pretty unusual release for this label, but also in every other aspects. Abstract Dream-Noise-Pop, mixtures of experimental sounds and spoken word. The duo (named after a classic CHROME song) consists of Rahel Preisser (vocals, trumpet, noise-effects) and Ghazi Barakat (also known as PHAROAH CHROMIUM, and many years ago as BOY FROM BRAZIL, ex-member of BURST APPENDIX, and lots more...) playing the "Rauschpfeif", which is a flute, that simply put works and sounds similar to a bagpipe, resp. the modern electronic version of it (called EWI).

ATLANTIKSCHWIMMER- s/t - LP - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge Vinyl-reissue of the cassette released in 1983. The band was from Kulmbach/Germany, their members running the legendary tape-label KASSETTO FIX, and producing the brilliant tape-zine "Band-It". The LP contains 9 songs of melancholic New Wave with funky danceable rhythms. A precursor to their LP released later in 1985 on ZICK ZACK.

GESTURE- II Tape - MC - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge The second tape (6 songs) from this Berlin-based band, featuring members of CULT VALUES, IMPOSITION MAN, and fronted by singer Eva. Sounding like a noisy and dirty hardcore-version of Death Rock. Maybe like a rowdy and rude mutation of 45 GRAVE... https://gesturebln.bandcamp.com/

HEAVY METAL- Smash Criticism Smash Optimism Smash Arachnophobia - LP - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge The 2nd full album by this Berlin-based band, who released one of the most outstanding Punk albums ("Anti-Music Anti-Sense Anti-You") last year. This new one features 13 more songs, and it's no less as refreshing and ecstatic as the first one. Lots of references could be named for their sound, from WIRE and ATV over URINALS and WEIRDOS to the early FLYING NUN bands... and more than that! But most of all, these guys are representing it with fun, style, a character of their own, and a great sense of (self-)irony.

SICK HORSE- Good Body Feeling - LP - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge Debut-LP (8 songs) by another obscure band from Berlin. Includes at least one member of HEAVY METAL, as far as I'm told... But whoever it may be, it's a fucking awesome Punk-Rock smasher! Loud, fast, hard, groovy, catchy, tight. Just the way it's supposed to be. https://sickhorse.bandcamp.com/
