Don’t Bring A Dog – Bring Your Cat

I’ve read about this documentary when it came out (or at least was shown in some selected places a few times) but could’nt go to watch it. It never appeared on DVD as far as I know but today I stumbled upon it – so yeah – here are just 24 years later some interesting tidbits from the New York scene in glorious youtube quality. Thanks to the uploader.

Dada Dada Ist ? – GERSTEIN

A new track taken from a forthcoming release by Gerstein (Maurizio Pustianaz) of Noisebrigade / A New Life / …. has just been released shortly after his highly recommended compilation 32 Years Of Rain which gives a great overview of all the periods he went through since he actively made and published own works – from early Industrial / Minimal Electronics to Piano Works, Post – EBM / Technoid / Darkwave and various Collaborative Works. Early ltd. tape only releases are also present here as later CD or Digital only releases . A few remixes and unreleased tracks make this even more interesting to follow him on his journey through the mind.
