A straight up classic of the English postpunk scene, produced by John McGeoch of Magazine, and Siouxsie fame. The A-side is as gritty and dark, as it is full of great melodies. The B-side is a moody almost psychedelic ballade.  http://www.mediafire.com/download/if8b6aigvcat8aa/WiseMen.rar

Super catchy English postpunk, "I Am Wood" is an especially awesome song, it's like the best thing The Monochrome Set never wrote. I included their first single from no longer forgotten music as the link is dead. Be sure to check out The Nice Men on Facebook!  http://www.mediafire.com/download/qq7iatk7g4oibpv/NiceMen.rar

Utterly deranged Residents style experiments from San Francisco. Mr. Paul Pot is still at it today with the Happy Clams. More info on this E.P. here. "Plastic T.V. Land on Acid" may make you lament mother's day, but "This is Your Leader" is prolly my favorite of the bunch, making Snakefinger sound pop in comparison.  http://www.mediafire.com/download/m2hid5vo5r627w5/Pope+Paul+Pot.rar

 A one off side project from Neil Socol, bassist of  Milwaukee, Wisconsin's funny punks Couch Flambeau. With the Appliances-SFB drummer Meredith Young, and a certain Chip Johns on board. You get a disturbing noise-dirge in "A Scarey Love", and jazz ridden postpunk in "Sheila's Boom Box". The record has A Scarey Love as the A-side despite what it says on the back cover.

First class herky-jerky art-wave postpunk from New Jersey. Fans of avant-prog / RIO might appreciate this as well. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Clive Smith also had a major role in writing the music for the desperately weird new wave film Liquid Sky!  http://www.mediafire.com/download/2v7c297qj6t72ux/Conversion.rar

Super fun English postpunk jangly pop. Sounds like The Monochrome Set colliding with The Petticoats in an all night shake down. The Moderates also had a track on the great Street to Street - A Liverpool Album compilation, did a John Peel session, and put out a couple singles after this EP.  http://www.mediafire.com/download/io3ezv7nvj1c10j/Mod.rar

Experimental new wave with electro-avant-jazz flourishes. They were from the Netherlands, but the music has a Slavic overtone or concept going on. Insert included. http://www.mediafire.com/download/w80188o3nwy248e/Idiotsavant-Feindsender.rar

Catchy minimal synth from the British Isles. Sounding a bit like Daniel Miller's Silicon Teens (especially on the song Rubbish) but with better and original songs. Missing on the Subway (featured below) is a standout, and was included in one of those New Wave Complex comps. The riff on Ain't Goin' Nowhere sounds vaguely Gary Numan-ish, but starts goin' in a different direction. My copy of the

Here's the follow up to the Seattle Syndrome Volume One, I posted awhile back. This one's even better than the first one, chock full of outstanding tunes. Minimal synths, post punks, new waves, power pops, weird otherness. My record is fairly beat up, probably because it was once a radio station copy, though it's fun being able to read the descriptions and comments left in pen by the DJs back in
