Touche Pas A Mon Tape & Saturday Night Favourites is not the Das Ding of the rest of these.


March 18, 2009
There seems to be some confusion here, with more than one band using the same name 'Das Ding'. The Das Ding from the 'Kalkulator' cassette and the 'Friends' and 'Transatlantic Overdub' records is not the same 'Das Ding' which appear on the others. This appears to be a German new-wave/rock band, while the former is a one-man Dutch cassette-label electro outfit. I hope there is some way to clear up the confusion inside the database, without cluttering it up even more by adding yet another 'das ding'...
There are more releases by this artist to be added later on.
