The wild 80's in Switzerland were shaped by music of bands, which used the chance - in the upwind of the musical 'culture revolution' of Punk and New Wave. - to create new and independent music. In this extremely creative time developed Mittageisen from 1981 their own individual music style and became thereby one of the earliest darkwave/electro Goth bands. In March 1983 Mittageisen published their 1st album, which gave to them extraordinarily positive criticisms. Besides the music the expressive lyrics in German-language made the songs and the group famous. After various personnel changes Mittageisen surprised in January 1985 with the 12" 'automaten' and a new electro sound. The single found the way to the legendary John Peel show on BBC Radio 1 and became an Indie-Disco hit. This new double CD contains 19 remastered songs, 6 of them previously unreleased, from the years 1981-1986. The two CDs are available in a fold-out digipak-sleeve with the cover-image of the 1.LP and a carefully made 24-page booklet incl. Band-fotos and informations about each song. Detailed information about the group and their music can be found on their website or wikipedia.
