Ende Vom Lied is a genre-spanning collection of punk, post-punk and avant-garde bands from the former East Germany, chronicling the work of free spirits pitted against government restraints and implied genre limitations. The underground scene in the German Democratic Republic was a hydra, a noisy mix of musicians, poets, painters, photographers, filmmakers, punks and freaks. In the immediate aftermath of the primal scream that was punk, music often bred with poetry or painting in short-lived liaisons or enduring collaborations to produce a new generation of bastard genres. With the lines blurring between forms, a search for new shapes began. In the German Democratic Republic, this search constituted a tightrope walk, a dance for expression between subculture and a dictatorship. In German, Ende Vom Lied literally translates to "The end of the song", but is more commonly understood as a saying roughly meaning "The upshot", "The end of the story" or simply "The end". Ende Vom Lied features: Ornament & Verbrechen, Grabnoct, L'Attentat, Der Schwarze Kanal, 3tot, Der Demokratische Konsum, T42, Happy Straps, Planlos, Sendeschluß, Zwitschermaschine, Aufruhr Zur Liebe, Andreas Auslauf, Rosa Extra, AG Geige, The Local Moon, Fett, Herbst In Peking, Magdalene Keibel Combo, BAADER, Klick & Aus, Der Expander Des Fortschritts and Pffft....
