v.a. 時の葬列 – Selections From Excommunicated Monument

This is great compilation album of japanese mid-eighties gothic, new wave, post-punk and noisy avantgarde stuff. G-Schmitt are frail, beautiful and full of pathos, Madame Edwarda’s tracks definitely surpass the songs of their debut album, Auto-Mod deliver songs of dancable aggression and childlike wanderings (but less funk than on some of their 7“es), and Sadie-Sads‘ tracks on this album are pure genius. And to make it all perfect, the title translates as…

The Funeral Procession Of Time!

    Yes this compilation has la crème of the Wechselbalg (hey, that’s German for you! and not your everyday word precisely…) label and yes a lot of goodies. The Sadie Sads tracks I don‘t remember now (it may be that it was precisely their tracks the ones I didn‘t have from this album?) but this band can be a bit disappointing in their other releases, specially when they do Birthday Party imitations (but I guess Sodom, the Japanese band, were worse at that, in their second incarnation as goths). As mentioned, I had most of this LP already, but not the complete lot, so… thanks!! :)
