MIttageisen - Neues China (1983) / by Joel Goodman

This track opens the eighth volume of A Tribute to FlexiPop, which was a series of compilations released on CDr in the 2000’s that paid tribute to the 80s magazine that bundled each issue with a flexi disc loaded with awesome new wave and electro music. These tribute comps somehow made their way to record stores in Portland, where I was living at the time. I recall eagerly snatching up any volume I could find. My physical copies are lost to time but most of what was on them is easy to find on YouTube. I recently tried to track some of these discs down on Discogs, but they’re blocked for sale for some reason. It would be amazing to see a vinyl release of this stuff. In the mean time, YouTube will have to do.
