V/A - "Verschwende Deine Jugend - Punk und New Wave in Deutschland (1977-83)" (2001 comp)


I don't know much about this great comp and what I can find about it on the web is in German and I don't speak German...
I do know that this is a 2 CD set that came with a book on German punk/new wave of the same title by Jürgen Teipel. I know that the title translates to "Waste Your Youth" and is from a DAF song which is included. There is also a film of the same name which apparently has nothing to do with this book/CD. It's got the greats like Einstũrzende Neubauten and Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft, and other greats I've discovered via this comp like Mittagspause and Abwärts. In fact the whole comp is awesome and a good entry point to the Neue Deutsche Welle and once you're hooked you can then go find tons of cool stuff on other blogs. Like I did. Mutant Sounds is a good starting point (link is on the right).
My German friend in Tucson, Jörg (nom de radio The Jorgenator) burned this for me years ago and it has brought me much listening pleasure.
Disc 1 is HERE, Disc 2 HERE.
So get your Sprockets on and DANCE. And touch the monkey!

A great comp, which I won't download on account of having it already :)

Good introduction to German post-punk/new wave scene shortly before it exploded to mainstream...
Personally I like SYPH too, and debut album of Fehlfarben is a classic, and Malaria! is great and...
Well, I like the more mainstream NDW too :)

The Pessimist Club is a great read. Keep up the good work.
