Various Artists - Berlin Atonal 85

Various Artists - Berlin Atonal 85

Cassette, C90
Unofficial Release, France"Berlin Atonal" festival has became mythic in the odyssey of 80s industrial music. Unfortunately, I've not found anywhere a detailed history of the festival. It seems to have began in 1982 and ended in 1990. In 1999, a new edition was organized during several days, but was it the last and least ? Anyone more info ?
Amongst the many artists who performed live in Berlin Atonal, let's mention Einsturzende Neubauten (for the first and last edition, in 1982 and 1999), Laibach, Malaria!, Non Toxique Lost, Psychic TV, Test Dept., Z'EV, Zos Kia...
A record label named Atonal Records was also created, releasing vinyls and CDs, some of these being live recordings from the festival.I've researched on Discogs and found that live recordings from the festival can be heard on those releases :

"Berlin Atonal 85" is an unofficial release featuring excerpts from the concerts recorded during the Berlin Atonal festival, February 17-18 1985 (that cassette was sold to me by french magazine Hello Happy Taxpayers #4/5). All the bands here are "celebrities" needing no introduction, except Art Deco, a band from Budapest (Hungary); they have a discreet page on the Web but it doesn't help much. I'd love to hear more from/about them... And thank to Phoenix Hairpins, those who don't know Zahgurim can download their excellent Moral Rearmament LP !
