in heaven - aquanova e.p. 1992

so you think you've heard it all! seen it all before, been there, done that... well, might as well call me a rookie. as my latest pick up just proved that, released in 1992.. shoegaze scene was at its peak, quietly amongst other popular scenes, i.e. britpop, madchester, house and grunge  here in the u.s. for me this single is up there with the rest of the top sounding noisepop/experimental outfit (as other freshies might address them) of the nineties. from meller welle produkte same label that brought us balloon farm, dan dare, lovelies and a few more. three-track 7" single ripped using the free audacity sw, but did no enhancement to it so we can experience the rawness as it was meant to be.

seen it all before...

it'll keep awhile...

noname - fashion 12" 1989

sole single from the this trio who i think were from germany(not to be confused with the italian techno/dance duo of the same name). later founded the electronic synth act dark distance spaces. "fashion", a single released thru zyx records.. not an easy thing to find and when you do it's usually pricey but not unusual to this kind of music, listen on and you'll see what i mean. i hear cetu javu vocals cross with perhaps secession's programmings.

ecstasy of saint theresa - susurrate cd 1992

czech indie band with one very mbv-like album in 1992 and an ep in '91 that's very reminiscent to the sound of "the charlottes", any way you look at it... it's absolute shoegaze. but eost sound was never the same after this release(thanx to clairerecords for re-releasing this album in 1999, 2000).
