Between 1980 and 1985 Unlimited Systems released some really decent Goth tunes. A single, LP and a couple of tracks on a film soundtrack and sampler make up the discography for this
German Post-Punk band
. Overall, I really like the band's output. But oddly the LP has some tracks that I have trouble accepting as valid to the band's sound. Most of the tracks on the second side seem out of place--rather dull Dad Rock. But frankly, when I get to hear tracks like Anita Berber, When it Rains, and Ich Beiß Mich Selbst, I can be very forgiving of failure. Singer Marianne Enzensberger went on to some pop offerings in the years after. That said, I strongly urge you to get this here.
The LP was produced in part by Will Roper, from Marquee Moon. Also by guitarist Gerd Pasemann and one of Germany's big name pop singers, Marianne Rosenberg. May explain the diverse sounds. There's another bit of something funny here, as Rosenberg also appears with some Goth tracks on the soundtrack to Der Biß. While I am curious to hear more of Rosenberg in this style, it appears there may not be such an album.
