I guess it doesn’t matter how small the fanzine is you are doing, people will always send you stuff for a review. As for Dear You Zine we did one issue in late 2005 and haven’t been active since but still people send out stuff to us so we write about them in our little publication. I guess the are looking for this because they seek some sort of credibility or something. So recently I recieved a package from a band called Kommando zurück. Just a small envolope with a CD in it. Oh, and a short and pointless sheet of paper explaing what I am dealing with this time.
Let’s face it, the record is crap, at least to me. Their info is meant to be funny, I guess, but to me it’s just some high school kid on dope writing down his crazy thoughts. Aliens, c’mon, get a life, will ya? And from the first song on I was instantly annoyed. Maybe I am just too old for jokes like this but I just cannot find anything in listening to crappy electro punk with “funny” lyrics. Naw, boys, this is stupid shit noone needs in the first place. I mean, what’s wrong with the “scene” anyway. I might sound slightly conservative, but I can’t see the point in starting up a band like this. If you’re aiming for an audience who appreciates this music send you stuff to techno magazines. Sure, there is great electronic music, but noone really needs this. Still I guess those guys might have enough friends who support them no matter what so they feel like they are doing the right thing. In my eyes they are not. But that’s just my humble opinion. Just don’t bother my with crappy bullshit like this, will ya?
