In 1982 Andreas Dorau put out a great single on Mute Records called "Fred Vom Jupiter" (Mute 019) under the name of Die Doraus & Die Marinas. 16 years later he is thanked on every Bungalow release, and he works as a set designer with Ata Tak of Der Plan. There is a new TV ad for German soft drink Bluna (Afri Cola Company), that uses Tipsy as BGM. Afri Cola once became famous for it's (then provocative) Pop art clips by Charles Wilp. Afri Cola also sponsored Andreas Dorau. Check out his latest (of many) records, bought at Other Music. His lyrics are very clever and humorous, if you can understand German (except for the single ""Girls in Love"", sung in English)."

Indie-Pop compilation with bands from US and all over the world. All songs are unique to this CD, and all bands are part of the "Indie-Pop List" on the web. If you subscribe to it, be sure to get the digest, unless you want to go crazy trying to sort through tons of messages every day! Local band Coloring Book (recently relocated to NYC) have a new song on it.
Magoo is the creeper band of the Chemikal Underground group of artists. They never have really been successful, yet they put out stuff regularly, of high quality. They almost remind me of Flaming Lips.
