Symboter - "Phon-Ethik" - (Syntape 017) 1983

Dunno what I did, fuck this has fucked up my LAFMS sequence!?
See it as a repost from the olden days, with an updated link.

Olaf has got his hands on a ppg wave 2.2, an early digital synthesiser, but had good old analogue filtering; so those harsh digital sounds are less jarring on the old lug holes. Also the sound is augmented by the classic Roland Jupiter 8 polysynth, later to be shamed forever by The Human League (mk.2) in their many hits. A cassette full of beautiful analogue warmth, with quite a few decent tunes.Often straying very close to the dangerous waters of soundtrack and library music, but still sticking to the traditions of 70's/80's German electronic musik. Dunno if the title refers to some kind of ambitious attempt at Ethnological Forgery, previously attempted by CAN or not.Although,it does sounds like an adequate version of the modern technological tribal music, but without the mind killing jackboot beat that has stifled youth dissent for the past 25 years. Honest electronic musik before it was turned into the ultimate W.M.D (weapon of mass distraction). Also, the best Symboter cassette.

Track 5 of side 1 seems to have dropped off or dropped out. ?? Very grateful anyway, for this and for all.
