GUANO APES To Release 'The Lost (T)Apes' Collection

Germany's GUANO APES will release a posthumous collection of early recordings, entitled "The Lost (T)Apes", on December 1 via G.U.N. Records.

Commented the band: "For all of you, it's definitely the final chapter; for us, it's a new beginning in different constellations. We've dug around in our archive and dusted off a few original tracks to show you in hindsight how some of our songs developed.

"What you can hear on this last CD of ours is the humble beginnings of GUANO APES. These are recordings done in 1994 and 1995, featuring some of the songs that made it onto our albums later on. Almost all of it was recorded by Fabio Trentini in the 'Nest' youth center on a four-track multi-track cassette recorder and a portable DAT recorder!

"We met Fabio back then through the local youth social worker, Wilfried Dittmar. Fabio offered to record a couple of songs with us, and we loved the idea of finally having a chance to record our music and sell it as demos at gigs.

"The first recordings are now around 12 years old, and you're sure to rediscover lots of what made up the GUANO APES sound later on. For us, listening to some of this stuff was like hearing the songs for the first time again. Stude evens swears that he's never, ever heard one of the songs on this album, much less played on it himself... Memory really is a funny thing..."
