Hello Heston, here is your Einstürzende Neubauten challenge.
16 tracks, mostly chronological. Some of the tracks are actual videos.
I consulted with Wolter when making this. The track "Armenia" is there mostly so you get an idea of what they looked like. They are famous for using pipes, chainsaws, shopping carts, metal springs etc as percussion instruments. The very last video is a little bonus video of Blixa Bargeld, the lead singer.
As this is chronological, the later tracks are generally more accessible. I emphasized accessible tracks over the abrasive early stuff, but there's still a lot of weirdness afoot. I did not try to sequence it for flow at all.
I figure you'll like at least one track, but who knows. I went two tracks shorter (technically three tracks as the last video isn't even music) because I think their songs were generally a bit longer than those on the KISS challenge, but I could be overcompensating. I tried to pick more recent uploads so that the sound quality would be better.

Incidentally, Blixa did all the supernatural screams and shrieks in the film the Mummy
(1999), and the whistling teakettle sound in "Salamandrina" is his voice.
I feel that there is a fascistic element, for example, in the Rolling Stones . . .

I've studied the phenomenon of neo-provincialism in self-isolating online communities but this place takes the fucking cake.
