You might also find this interesting.

We refer to it as "Analog Music from a Lost World" — previously unreleased post-punk experimental rock from 1981, unlike anything else recorded before or after.

"This is amazing stuff and we would be honored to feature it in wfmu's curated portal on the free music archive. I'm very sorry for our slow response, we have a lot of stuff to wade through to find gems like these."

I would have called the compilation 'Entheogenic Enragés' but I guess 'Dirty French Psychedelics' is a good a title as any....being permanantly one year behind everyone else culturally speaking, I thank the gods blogs like yours exist!

The Dirty Sound System seem to do no wrong and this is no exception. I do not think enough people appreciate the time, effort and expense it can take to spend years digging through the proverbial dusty crates, getting charged ridiculous prices for uber-rarities (now that every record stall, shop and seller can just type a record into google/discogs and see if they have hit pay-dirt...) & often the end result is a single devastating track and the rest is just filler.

So I salute the Dirty SS for not keeping these rarities to themselves! Definitely going on my birthday list.

You're good, Mr. Saucer. That was a truly thoughtful thing to say.
