Teenage Panzerkorps - (2010) Here Come The Warm Tanks 7''

Formed in 2001, TEENAGE PANZERKORPS aka DER TPK split members between San Francisco and Berlin and Aachen, Germany. They gather semi-annually to record their primitive post-punk jams on cassette. Their music is often described as “kraut punk”, a mix of crude Neu! rhythms, blown-out guitars and bass, fuzz organ with vocalist Bunker Wolf ranting in German. The band takes obvious influence from early 80’s art punk (Minimal Man, Factrix, Savage Republic, Chrome) & California hardcore blurred into a lo-fi drone.

Tonstartssbandht - (2010) Midnite Cobras 7''

Every review I read about this record is pretty bad. The description, not the music itself.

TONSTARTSSBANDHT is a bit like having your mom snatch the blanket off the bed at seven AM. You will wake up, you will be startled, and there will be nothing you can do but move. Below, the band with no picture and no pronounceable name makes an anti-sound with lo-fi alchemy, and if we could discern a single phrase other than "Midnite Cobras" we'd sing along beyond the refrain.
The Bros. back then.

Dracula Lewis - (2014) Technical XTC CS


C56 "Mixtape" H027 
Rustic Orange Tape 
Limited Edition of 150 (first press)

The return of DRACULA LEWIS isn't predictable as some hater's expected.
He spent the last year and half working on this mixtape, collecting instrumentals by friends all over the world and finding a way to sing on top of that.


"While it’s easy to get a sense of his metal and punk roots, his upcoming mixtape Technical XTC uses the hip-hop model of enlisting a slew of other producers—such as Wolf Eyes’ John Olson, PAN artist Helm, Hundebiss artists Sewn Leather and Jaws, and even one by Palm Wine—and feels remarkably cohesive, thanks to his strong presence and vocal processing"
