Manisch Depressiv Manisch Depressiv 7″

Some ex-members of Switzerland’s TNT come up with a totally unique and powerful sound. It’s mainly just a couple of raw guitars and female vocal harmonies, interspersed with weird and abrasive breaks, eruptions, and outbursts. One song runs through both sides, and it represents punk at its most innovative.

Trotz Allem Spezial EP

Winsome, lightweight pop in the tradition of the AU PAIRS, the MO-DETTES, the RAINCOATS, DIE MÖGEL, the WANDAS, etc. The occasionally reggae-fied bass is their heaviest instrument, and it nicely counterpoints the lilting female vocals, but nothing here is really meaty enough to sink your teeth into.
