"In Goth Daze" - VA Compilation (LP, vinyl rip). 1989

   This strange and rare compilation (the full title is "In goth daze - Now that's what we call real music") was released in England by Flicknife records back in 1989 and it includes some amazing music of horror and decay by some great bands.
  Mystery, horror, craziness, fun, decay, hallucinations, humor, dance beats, they are all here!
 If you love darkwave, gothic and deathrock you'll enjoy this compilation. I think this has never been released in cd and the vinyl record is really rare. My favorite track is "Vegas" - a monolithic gothic masterpiece!

01. Specimen - Hex
02. Nico - Vegas
03. Alien Sex Fiend - I walk the line
04. 39 Clocks - Psychotic Louie Louie

Venus In Furs - New Horizon (LP, vinyl rip). 2010.

   Venus In Furs is another excellent dark wave/gothic band from the Greek '80's. Their sound was early gothic rock with a strange and deep melancholy running through all the songs.
   Despite however, their exceptional live appearances and their 3 demos, recorded from summer 1985 until their final split in 1993, their only musical inheritance was the extremely rare album “New Horizon”, in 13 copies!! The limited number of copies resulted due to numerous technical sound problems that lead to the discontinuance of the album’s production.
   20 years later, the founding members of the band met again to play and record these legendary songs. The result was this beautiful album, released in 2010 by B-other Side records in limited number of copies (250), in vinyl only.


This is authentic '80's dark wave/gothic by a highly inspired band. Venus In Furs still play and they have a new album called "Dead Europe" which you can order here

Not 2 Without 3 - End of the day / Under the flag (7" single, 1985 recordings, vinyl rip). 2012.

   Not 2 Without 3 was one of the most active and inspired bands among the greek new wave scene in the beggining of the '80's.
    Nevertheless their only vinyl appearance was two songs in the legendary compilation "Outsiders" in 1985. 
   Almost 30 years later two more songs are coming from the dark past to the darker present!
   Not 2 Without 3's anxious gloomy sound, inspired from the dark english scene of that time, seems to fit perfectly in today's social atmosphere.
   So if you have a record player you may still have the time to order this excellent packaged vinyl single from the site of Eirkti. The record was released in limited number of copies (400) in vinyl only in 2012.
   Another diamond from the greek darkwave scene of the '80's!
