Neue Deutsche Mitte - Meinung [Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse 011]

Recently released via the German underground label Raketenbasis Haberlandstrasse is "Meinung", the cassette-tape single debut of the freshly formed seven piece band project Neue Deutsche Mitte which is another obscure discovery from the deepest vaults of the countries DIY-scene. With four tracks and a total runtime of 17 minutes we see the Neue Deutsche Mitte discuss the lifestyle of the Austrian capital Vienna in "Wian", a strange mixture somewhat in between Falco and early 80s experimental Glam and introduce dialect-heavy, drummachine-led StalkerBilly to the well-puzzled audience in "I Hab Di Nimmer Ksen" on the A-side whilst the flipside ironically deals with political barroom cliches in the avantgarde rock'ish title track and even enters ArtSchool'ish PostPunk realms with "Hoffnung Für Europa" which translates as 'New Hope For Europe' with an implied '...after the Grexit'. Weirdness galore.
