Here are all of bunnyhausen's jams.

Just finished David Stubbs' magnificent 'Future Days' and noted that the Kosmische Club gets five whole pages, and so prompted here's some straight from the bedroom roller rink neue-deutsche-synthi-disco action just like what we used to play way back in the day gets-all-misty-eyed.

Second division Italo Pop hack work by most aficionados' reckoning, and yet this track has the way to make me deliriously, inexplicably happy. Like the best Hi-NRG, it seems to channel all the desires, all the inert flotsam from which we construct our fragile identities with a tremulous, existential horniness. Even though the words on this are (by Italo standards) mostly decipherable and pretty generic I still maintain that the language of Italo Disco is the glossolalia of desire translated with a pocket dictionary from the syntax of banality, grasping to transcend earthbound existence like a child grasping for a balloon that's flown out of reach.

I could listen to the vocal on this over and over. Love how it hovers just out of key - it just conjures this sense of first-take immediacy and poignance. Incredible. So anyway, I've been after this for ages and I've just seen that it's about to be reissued on one of those 'Fusty Disco Nuggets #4' type compilation LPs. But it's an Instrumental. Cowards.

All time favourite sardonic DIY synth action, as referenced in Agata Pyzik's fab 'Poor But Sexy' - best book I've read on pop cultural currents and the politics of East/West Europe cultural transmission. And, most enticingly, there's lots of references to intriguing synth pop / minimal wave outfits. Any book that references XeX has me in mind. Also, RIP Waw Pierogi.
