KILLERPRALINEN- S/T 12"EP (AGR, Germany, 1982)

killerpralinen-v.gifkillerpralinen-h.gifA while back, I’ve posted Middle Class Fantasies monstrous 7″ from 1981, one of the most disturbing records I can think of. KILLERPRALINEN was the follow-up band.
I don’t know shit about KILLERPRALINEN other than this was the bands only ever release (bootleged on “Die Deutschen kommen zurück” Comp LP from 1998). Musically, the band picks up where MCF left off basically. A bit more melodic maybe, with a dark, disturbing vibe (coming mostly from the singer’s exceptional style) and with standing out guitar bits. Definately one of the most original records you ever gonna hear and a timeless classic of its kind. But although the this 12″ seems to be of a certain ambitioned kind, the band remains very unknown to this day.
You will hear countless influences here, yet the “typical” CF sound always stays dominant. It fucking beats me why this isn’t part of the Post-Punk-, whatever-canon.

    If you have Chin Chin – We Don’t Wanna Be Prisoners EP, could you please post it? I would really appreciate it because I always like to hear obscure female groups.

    I am just listening to the record again for the first time in at least 20 yrs. Boy, this is insanely great. I remember liking this 12″ at the time, but I favored Middle Class Fantasies (I like their songs on “Soundtracks zum Untergang” better than the 7″). Now I have to say that Killerpralinen kick much more ass, I mean, it just sounds the way frenetic punk has to sound like. I’m just astounded that I have no recollection of ever seeing a show of theirs advertised anywhere, and I was in Frankfurt quite often in the early 80’s.
