Einstürzende Neubauten ‎– "Stahldubversions" (Eisengrau ‎– Rip Off ‎– Rip 6) 1982

Neubauten in dub, or New Buildings in dub; rather like a German reference to Pere Ubu's observations on housing in the United Kingdom, "Dub Housing". The same kind of dub housing in post war Germany was referred to as 'Neubauten'. So Dubbing up the group that bears the same name as those prefabbed hutches was the next logical step.
Hitting a large steel fuel tank with a sledge hammer just asks to be fed through a Roland Space echo and tweaked,and its done to great effect on this C-20.But unlike reggae based dub, these tracks sit up and beg your ears for attention, and don't outstay their welcome.
A Lot of these recordings formed the basis for later tracks:
"Liebesdub" is a variation of "Jet'm".
"Sado-Masodub" is basically "Tanz Debil" from 'Kollaps'.
"Rivieradub" was used on "Zeichnungen des Patienten O.T."
"Mikrobendub" is an early version of "Mikroben".
