mattyg107 Looks like there's good here no doubt, minus that god awful cover lol. Premonition 5 is worth half the price of admission. The other half is songs you've heard before or elsewhere reworked that are ok, but whyyy this need for the inexcusable inclusion of stuff we already have? Why is KK material here when it was just rereleased (in 2016 no less, same as this) and most of us would have it? Missed opportunities to put songs that are still yet to be released from compilations on your compilation... Favorite track: Premonition 5 / Deflated / Stoned Obituary (KK).

RTW This one makes me happy; the landmark "Premonition 5" is here. Supposedly a digital stand-in for the long lost Kleine Krieg, just over half of this contains the unique sequences from that release, which also had tracks from CP 1&2 etc. (But parts are not mightier than the whole.) Conveniently added are bonus tracks from earlier CD releases (Basilisk, Aradia, Traumstadt) and a mournful version of "Flesh Parade" rescued from a compilation that devolves quite nicely. Favorite track: Premonition 5 / Deflated / Stoned Obituary (KK).

  • If only all cds could be presented like this reissue of "Kleine Krieg".... For many years Austrian label, Klanggalerie, has been making a case for the resurrection of the compact disc and, by now, they are most certainly winning. A double disc with a lavish fold-out artwork. It is jaw-dropping. This cd is also available directly from the label here: www.klanggalerie.com/gg321

about

The history of The Dots must appear like an impossible maze to the uninitiated. Some songs appear on several cassette releases , often re-recorded ,sometimes reinvented for the myriad of compilations the band turned up on. Occasionally a 20 minute LPDs epic would include known songs morphing into atmospherics as with the rare "The End Of The World As We Know It". The familiar becomes a little unfamiliar, the memory plays tricks. I blush to confess it was deliberate. Even so, this compilation is doing it's best to play fairer , even if a song like , say ,"Down From The Country " can be found elsewhere. For the purist , we're making a pristine new edition of "Kleine Krieg" on CDR, while ,for those who (understandably) jump up and down and shout "I don't need "Defeated" yet again" ,there is also this collection which largely avoids the repetition .Cover art by the Silverman based on a painting by Emma Hyland-Arkley.
