Compiling the best music even your snottiest friends have never heard of, DJ/musicians Munk (Mathias Modica and Jonas Imbery) assemble another hot round of danceable obscurities from Deutschland’s late ’70s/early ’80s underground. More varied and whimsical than British post-punk of the same period, this German jam scene-an experimental fringe of the Neue Deutsche Welle that bred the pop hit “99 Luftballons”-resulted in some funky, punky, quirky, jerky, electro-erotica that will rock your retro socks off. It’s a testament to their importance that, even today, the selections on this comp sound super-fresh and totally familiar at the same time.
