With “Grundstück”, a real Einstuerzende Neubauten rarity is being released on the commercial market for the first time.
Originally issued in 2005 as a small, limited edition, strictly intended only for registered band supporters, the much sought-after album is now officially available as a CD, and also for the first time ever as an LP, each including a DVD with previously unpublished film recordings of the project and an extensive booklet.
“Grundstück” (also informally known as “Supporter Album No. 2”) was completed in the fall of 2005. It was shipped to supporters in October and was also available to non-supporters during the ‘Alles Wieder Offen’ tour in 2008. Back then the album was offered to supporters in two versions; one with just the audio CD and another version with the DVD containing material from the November 2004 “Grundstück” performance at the Palast der Republik in Berlin.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
