2 LP

Founded in Berlin in January of 1981, Malaria! has a legacy that goes way beyond being Germanys very

first all-female post-punk outfit. Motorik beats and dark synth flourishes underscore nearly gothic vocals

on songs that range from New Order-esque pop to the grimmest of bad-trip-inducing experimentalism.

With 20 tracks from the groups influential early years, Compiled 2.0 gathers together all of the debut

album, 1982s Emotion, as well as the first single and various other EP and compilation cuts. This is the

definitive collection of a pioneering group that has been woefully underrepresented on vinyl for decades.

January 1981 found Gudrun Gut and Bettina Koster in Christopher Frankes Berlin-Spandau Studio recording

their first Malaria! EP (Zensor Records). Christine Hahn of The Static with Glenn Branca and Barbara Ess,

joined in from New York, and Manon P. Duursma fresh from Nina Hagens O.U.T. project and Susanne Kuhnke

completed the Line-Up. Malaria! started touring intensively soon after the release of their 12", commencing

with a concert with New Order at Brussels Ancienne Belgique, and going on from there to concerts with

Siouxsie and the Banshees, Birthday Party, The Slits, The AuPairs, Raincoats, Nina Hagen, John Cale,

Einsturzende Neubauten. They played venues as diverse as the Mudd Club, Peppermint Lounge and Studio 54

in New York, the Documenta in Kassel, the Bat Cave in London, Les Bains Douche in Paris, Milky Way and

Paradiso in Amsterdam, ICA in London, the Piazza Santa Maria Novella in Florence and Markthalle in Hamburg

and naturally, again and again, at the SO36 in Berlin.While touring, Malaria! used their time off to record in

Studios in New York, London, Brussels, New Orleans, and in Berlin (How Do You Like My New Dog? 7", Weisses

Wasser 12", New York Passage 12", Revisited MC, Emotion Album). At the BBC studios in London Maida Vale

Malaria recorded an Kit Jensen and a John Peel Session. Malaria! took a break in 1984 - Bettina and Christine

re-located to New York, and Gudrun and Manon stayed in Berlin to form, with Beate Bartel, Matador, but not

before they recorded their Mini-Album, Beat the Distance. 1992 Gudrun, Bettina, Christine, and Manon met up

in New Orleans with Jim Thirlwell (Foetus) to record Elation 12". Elation was followed by Cheerio, Album,

which again was recorded in Berlin.Chicks on Speed did their own version of Malarias song, Kaltes Klares Wasser

in 2001, and the Remix went into the German Top 10. Malaria has been an instrumental part of Berlin Music
