Silent Rite - Greatest Show 7"


Only release I know of this German wave band. Their sound has nothing in common with NDW but is more inspired by UK postpunk.
Not much info to be found on Silent Rite except that bassplayer Lee Self also played in The Beauty Contest, Montanablue, Tanzplagen and occasionally for Kastrierte Philosophen.
This 7" was released on a small label called 46 Records. They also released records by Die Hornissen, Quick Culture and Alvi & The Alviettes.
'Benediction' is a live recording.
