O.K. So I mentioned a soundtrack featuring Unlimited Systems. It is only fair I share it here. The movie sounds pretty bad, and all the more reason to track it down and watch it. I did not realise Marianne Enzenberger, singer of Unlimited Systems, is the director.
Marianne Rosenberg has a couple of interesting dark tracks here. I first heard Rhapsody in Blut on the Godfathers of German Gothic sampler, and found it cheesy and fun. As I mentioned before, despite the obvious, er, poseurism to the fact, I am intrigued by the sound of these songs. I had been told she did an album of such songs. Having hunted and asked about so many of these bands for the better part of two decades, I somewhat doubt it exists. If anyone has more information, please speak up.
Die Gesunden, whom I adore, do a great minimal track about "cold love." New York artist David Peel, Unlimited Systems guitarist Gerd Pasemann, and Tecnoville contribute some good music to this.

Plot: Der Biß (1985)
This Berlin Underground spoof of a vampire movie begins with a few original ideas that are difficult to sustain through to the ending. Sylvana (Marianne Enzenberger, also the director) has arrived for a stay in New York City but after becoming exhausted wandering around somewhat lost, she is taken to a mysterious brownstone walk-up and is bitten by a vampire before she knows what is going on. Now with a slightly different perspective on life, she flies back to Berlin, anxious to sink her teeth into just about anyone she can find. But as she tries to entrap people -- ranging from commune dwellers to the staid middle classes -- no one is interested in being bitten, and they get a little irritated with Sylvana. This hardly bodes well for her future as a bat woman. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
