Die CD-Version der zweiten Tech Ahead LP Certain Revenge enthält die erste LP Evolve To Survive als Bonustracks, allerdings damals neu aufgenommen, mit Alesis Drumcomputer (wie die zweite) statt mit Originaldrummer Uli Bammer wie auf der Vinyl. Hier ist die CD, zum freien Anhören, Downloaden, Weiterverbreiten, Weiterverarbeiten, auf Jamendo. Das heisst, ihr dürft sie legal auf Pirate Bay tun, euer eigenes Video damit unterlegen, Samples rausziehn, auf Youtube stellen, mit eurer Band nachspielen, aber ihr müsst dann immer dazusagen, dass die Musik von Tech Ahead ist (und hierher verlinken), nur eben kein Geld dafür verlangen: cc by sa nc.

Tech Ahead was a band out of Augsburg, south Germany, playing from 1987 to 1994. Influenced by post-punk, noiserock, industrial metal („it’s like… ministry meets the B’52s“) the group issued 2 LPs „evolve to survive“ (1991) and „certain revenge“ (1992) while the 3rd album „sweet fruit of hate“ (1994) is still to be released. All music is going to be re-released under creative commons attribution noncommercial (cc by nc). Links to the downloads soon to follow.

Tech Ahead was: Fritz Effenberger guitar, voice, lyrics (and drumcomputer programming 1990- 1992), P Häuser (now Petra Bossek) bass, voice, art, and various drummers: We like to thank Uli Bammer (1987-91), Jan Kiwior, Udo Stegherr, Kai Laufen, Rolf Beyer and our trusted Alesis HR-16.
