Wonderful compilation of synth experimentation from 1982. This was previously posted by No Longer Forgotten Music about a year ago, but it was unindexed, which made it pretty difficult to differentiate between bands/songs.
Minimal Wave reissued the Sluik tracks from here on to a 7 inch, but it looks like they're all sold out.

Get this. It's wonderful.

Good music I agree. Which Das Kombinat are you referring to? I am coming up with two bands called that on MYspace. Other than that, I cannot find anything referring to the name.

Grabbed the Sluik 7inch. From Fusetron (tip, great distro).

Not all of the Sluik tracks on this cassette here are on the vinyl (no tracks 4 and 5)...

Thanks for the high quality rip of these oft stunning minimal wave tracks.

More experimentation please.
