5/5/2000: Fin
CAT. #: ALP015
Fin is the apocalyptic title for this debut CD by 5/5/2000. This is the soundtrack to the end of the world which according to Mayan and other ancient calendars was to come when the first six planets aligned on May 5th in the year 2000. This recording demonstrates their discovered ability to integrate breakbeats into their improvs or create curiously soothing soundscapes in contrast to the group's potentially harsh audio attack.

Various Artists: Trummerflora 2
