AUSWEIS - Murnaü 1984

A restless night lies behind me and after I already ripped another record now back with rare medicine. From time to time I repost records of unfortunately inactive blogs and it's really bad that many are dead. Today one from my favorite blog and a dear friend... here are his words: "Very first release of this French band. Ausweis play great postpunk influenced by Killing Joke. The quite short and more uptempo 'Gangsters United' show their punk roots. Ausweis stirred some interest in the UK as the following records were released on UK labels: the 'Victimes' 12" on Chainsaw (label of Living In Texas) and 'Jours De Haine' 12" is the first release on Ediesta Records. You can also watch some TV appearances on their MySpace page. There is a discography CD in the works but that's already more than a year I guess. I hope it will be issued as their records are scarce and/or pricey these days. This mini-album was released on cult label L'Invitation Au Suicide and contains a lyric sheet small poster and a big poster" (Curious Guy, phoenixhairpins). Ausweis are on numerous compilations and I would be glad if somebody send me the France Profonde Vol 2 slab.
