01. "Inside 1979"

taken from the 2010 "comeback" album "Midnight People & Lo-Life Stars"
Originally a part of a sound/video-installation that Tina Sanudakura & Andy Schwarz did for their "KEIN KIEL" exhibition at the Kunsthalle zu Kiel in 2007.
It features computervoices reading news topics from 1977 onwards to draw a picture of the social enviroment of that time.

02. "So Unreal"
Originally released on the "Dreams" compilation in 2005. A song from the "Mark II" 3 piece line-up that also took care of:

03. "Suicide Commando" (1981) original version.
What can you say about this classic that hasn't been said already?
Is there any connection between Kiel and New York?
NO MORE had to fold and glue every cover by hand, because they wanted to have a special Gatefold cover.



04. "In A White Room" - the B-side of the "Suicide Commando" written during a long night on the Schleswig-Holstein landscape in 1980 where NO MORE appeared at the (infamous) Schweinestall-Festival (PigHog Festival) on a farm. "Falling trees try to kill me" - maybe that's what refers to the "PARANOIA" part in the compilation title.

05. "It Feels Like 1925" from the "A Rose Is A Rose" 10" mini-lp (1982)
During the recording NO MORE received the news that a former teacher, manager, producer had killed himself. He wanted to produce "Suicide Commando" in the first place but didn't like the demo they made for him, so they did it by themselves with co-producer H.D. WŁnsch (called HDW, an inside Kiel joke, refering to the biggest warft at that time called HDW).
"A Rose Is A Rose" is perhaps NO MORE's darkest album.
The NME wrote: "NO MORE are a trio of young Germans who appear to have fallen out of Lou Reed's Berlin album". This song stands out because it has that swing feel and features a crazy saxophone that was recorded in a laundry room in HDWs basement.





06. "Dreams" from 1980 - Dreams are what keep these youngsters going.



07. "Istanbul" is a 2019 version of the song originally released in 1985 on the "Do You Dream Of Angels In This Big City?" 12" EP.
NO MORE were at the height of their "oriental" phase and kicking off as a strong live band.

08. Therefor Tina Sanudakura & Andy Schwarz recorded a new version of "Do You Dream Of Angels In This Big City?" too.
The original recordings were made at the studio of the German band Franz K. in Witten.

09. "The Unpredictable Sky" (from "Midnight People & Lo-Life Stars") is a moody ambient song, improvised and recorded with the Eno-inspired software KOAN, an early tool for generative music.



10. NO MORE recorded this version of "Midnight People & Lo-Life Stars" for the 2016 "Touchlight Buddhas" compilation, curated by Dirk Ivens. It's a kind of live version NO MORE play at their shows.

11. "Sisyphus" is the title song of the 2013 album and besides their love for the french philosopher Albert Camus NO MORE think that this myth just tells their story - BUT - as Camus says: "Each atom of that stone, each mineral flake of that night-filled mountain, in itself, forms a world. The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. ONE MUST IMAGINE SISYPHUS HAPPY."

12. "Teenage Years" (2019 version)
Andy Schwarz & Tina Sanudakura once recorded this Kraut-Teen-Saga in 2006 for the 25th anniversary of "Suicide Commando" compilation "ReMake/Remodel". It was one of the first songs they rehearsed for the Live-Comeback in Poznan, Poland, autumn 2008.

13. Just like the 2019 version of "Quiet Days On Celluloid" where Andy Schwarz remembers his childhood & his teens.

14. "Turnaround" is the instant-classic from the 2013 album "Silence & Revolt".
"We're dancing slowly - just freezing time
My world is silent - I turn around
Oh no - I feel so insecure
You send me reeling into the night"

15. The 2019 Live-version of "The Grey" from the "Sisyphus" album. Here comes the video of the original version.

16. "The Man Outside" (from the album "Silence & Revolt")
VIDEO: www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKUDR6Ef-OA

17. "Rope A Dope"
"Life's just a rope - a - dope
You say: they never come back
We watch the rivers flow
Suddenly we attack"
Do the Muhammad Ali
(from the album "Silence & Revolt")

18. "What About Us?" (prev. unreleased)
NO MORE originally recorded this cover version some years ago for a "The Fall" appreciation compilation that never saw the light of day. When Mark E. Smith died, NO MORE released a video with the song as a hommage.
VIDEO: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTT62YbnzOo

19. "A Different Kind Of Woman" (prev. unreleased)
Andy Schwarz & Tina Sanudakura made the first recordings of this song about a Transgender Woman nearly 20 years ago. Now they've finished it. Some things take time.

20. "Heroes" - You can't cover that song without failing. That's a given. It depends on how well you fail. Originally from the "Sisyphus" album, this is the actual live version.



Bonus songs:
01. "Salome" from the 1985 mini-lp "Laughter In The Wings". The first NO MORE record that was recorded in a "proper" studio, first recording with bass player number 3, Thorsten Hartung.



02. "Maybe Some Day" & 03. "Too Late" from the first 4 track EP "Too Late" (1980).
The German magazin "Sounds" wrote: "strangely archaic music, discreetly brutal sound. Important are the keyboards that carry the catchy melodies, creating mysterious twilight moods."
