Auto-Mod – Last Punk Hero/Dancin‘ Rhythm 7“

Last Punk Hero, what a great name for a great 7“, I hope it pissed off lots of humorless punk purists! Released in 1982, these two tracks are great disco‘esque post-punk with funky guitar and basslines, a drum machine, chirping synths and of course Genet’s unique voice. Yeah!

Dancin‘! Dancin‘! Dancin‘, dancin‘ rhythm!

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!

Auto-Mod – Cannibal Of Love 7“

Cannibal Of Love, what a title! This 7“ from 1985 is already a bit different from Auto-Mod’s earliest releases: slow, dark and romantic, new wave pop rock with crooning vocals and a wailing saxophone. Side B even has some disco-like moments during the chorus.

Delicious!
