Couch




Couch

7" (1996)

Kollaps

Munich, Germany

These homies are german homies, and they released a full length in 1997, Etwas Benutzen, which I always found awesomely minimalist, before modernizing their sound and thereby diluting their attractiveness substantially. I haven't met a lot of people who feel the same way, but what I usually do is give them the crazy eyes, drag my finger across my throat, and then mouth the words, "I am gonna slit your throat with my index finger" and then they usually change their minds and agree with me.

This 7" was the harbinger to that LP, and it is pretty rad. Checkity check check it:

Another great post that helps me complete my collection.

Gotta disagree with you about Etwas vs. some of the later stuff (Profane, Fantasy), even though you gonna slit my throat. But hey, I'll cut you some slack as you're posting great sh*t.

Thanks.

Loving your work here Louis. Keep it up. I only own Profane from these guys and always found it to be pleasant enough but a bit dull. Would like to hear Etwas if you ever feel like posting it.
