Various Artists- Systems of Romance Vol. 1

I’ve just finished whipping up few discs of obscure rarities for my DJ books, and partially inspired by Crispy Nuggets and his unstoppable series of loose tracks, I’ve decided to share these two with you. I’ll post one of these now and follow with the second sometime next week.

Here’s the tracklisting for this particular batch:

VA- Systems of Romance Vol. 1
1. Dream (For My Sake)- Bino
2. You’re Always Guilty- Vellum Stairs
3. Ein Traum- Dammerattacke
4. Seg Og Hor/Jenten Fra- Knut Skodvin
5. Paradoxe- Thierry Meyer
6. First Impressions- VHF
7. Tanz Ins Gluck- Die Neue Weltmacht
8. Bronson- Eirin Peryglus
9. All That Place- Excentrique Noiz
10. Secret Affair- Industrie
11. The Cops Are Coming- Karnage
12. Interferon- Phillipe Laurent
13. Mole At The Circus- Slim Bridges & the Wildfowlers
14. The Time of Your Life- This Perfect Day
15. Trading in Guilt- Vital Signs
16. Ond Mae’r Dawns Yn Mynd Ymlaen- Y Gwasgwyr
17. Tell Me When Your Heart Beats- New Scientists

*download it here!*

Quick disclaimer: These are all exclusive/donated rips in piecemeal form, though on second glance, there’s a little touch of overlap here. The entire Vital Signs and New Scientists records have been uploaded by none other than Crispy himself (different rips), while you can find out more about Eirin Peryglus by clicking here, and here respectively. Otherwise, hope there’s enough new faces to keep you kids occupied. Stay tuned for Vol. 2 to follow next week!


EDIT 4.2.13:  This Perfect Day has just released a CD containing “The Time of Your Life” and “The Garden” as well as 11 other exclusive tracks.  The CD, titled No Frills, Just Noise! is available via the band’s facebook page!

    congratulations for your personal compilation!!.


  9. …any chances for the b side of Thierry Meyer's 7''?

  10. I'm really digging Dammerattacke's Ein Traum. It's got a sonic chorus section that breaks into a nice groove. Would love to hear more.

  11. Also, I'd love to hear more of Industrie.

  12. many thanks!
    I wish that you could put these nice gems in lossless flac someday!

    thank you!

  13. oh man…this comp is PERFECT!!! this is the stuff right here. thanx again!

  14. …others ask for lossless formats,others ask for albums that go for 100+ euros…
    People should be more than happy with what they get for free,
    than requesting for even more…it's not like it's the easiest material to be found…

  15. Thank you so much for offering all these unknown gems! I want more! 🙂
