DASS - Songs From Beyond

Erstveröffentlichung: MC / Eigenproduktion

DASS have been another German Dark-Wave/Gothic-Band, which is nearly forgotten today,even, if they did some very great songs on this tape and a 7""EP called ""Nach uns..."". The tape copy I own sounds very bad, but you can hear the quality of this early Dark-Wave band with US-Goth-influences. Very delayed sounds with a hammering bass and a voice somewhere between Ian Curtis and Andrew Eldritch. The track ""Screw Up Your Guitar"" is pure Death-Rock, which would have been a classic in a better world. Like so many other tape releases from this time, this one is very hard to find, but maybe someday there will be a re-release on CD-R or so...who knows. (A.P.)
