'Dear Listener!
This is a compilation of all our singles and other songs of our choice. CD 1 contains some extracts of the CDs that have been released so far. Hope you'll enjoy it and get addicted to that! CD 2 is something special - planned as a compilation for unreleased material it turned out to be a goldmine for songs that I've forgotten or lost somewhere between. Some I have rerecorded in my demostudio in Cologne, some we've just mixed or remixed.
01. Collaspe one day 5:09
That is from the first album-session in '89.
A song that could be described as the dinosaur version of „teargas baby“.

02. Bunker Girl 05:08
Also taken from that session - a kind of science fiction romance in a mutant world...

03. Illumination 4:11
taken from „Autumn On Venus“ sessions '91 and presented two years later on this compilation. A song about reaching wisdom without getting there... Buddha plays the triangle...

04. Let It Go 4:40
Taken from the the sold out „Nothing Lasts Forever“ EP from 1990 and chosen for this CD because some people asked for that song.

05. Riders On The Storm (Demoversion) 4:07
The demoversion of the song I always wanted to cover. This is the '93 version that I recently finished in Cologne.

06. Brainwashed Again (Demoversion) 5:23
The idea for the song that goes back in '91 - the is the actual demoversion of it. The story of an astronaut who hates the situation when he returns to earth. I'm not always that nihilistic - but sometimes I am.

07. Love Detector (Demoversion) 4:17
The vision of a machine that shows any reaction of love-tension between humans. It often collides with our rational thinking. A song about lust and devotion with a lot of acoustic guitars - also in the demoversion.

08. Teargas Baby (Bronski Mix) 4:44
This was the first version of that song we've recorded for the „Autumn On Venus“ session in '91 . In the remix we've featured the Bronski Beat element. I would like to hear this song very loud while driving autoscooter.

09. Marcella (Demoversion 85) 3:37
My version of the song on a very old tapemachine in '85. It's a bit different from
Mic's version on Pink Turns Blue's „Meta“ album...

That's it for the compilation. I hope you'll enjoy it and may wonder what the future holds? Well, you'll be surprised...

All the best
Th. Elbern'
