  17. UKRAINE

Elza - "Monsters Movie / World Of Elza" (M&E 248, 1994)

One of the biggest bands to come out of the Kharkov underground scene, Elza have an innovative style pretty much all their own, merging their ethnic influences with western rock. Plus bonus track.

18. THE NETHERLANDS

Trespassers W - "Buzz" (M&E 260, 1994)

The accomplished Dutch multi art performers presented us with this rather unique look into their diverse musical world, including radio and TV appearances, live performances and intimate moments at home. Plus bonus track and a book of three short stories by founder member, Cor Gout, published by M&E especially for this collection.

19. JAPAN

Toshiyuki Hiraoka - "T" (M&E 554, 2000)

Nowadays renowned for his cinematic soundtracks, Toshi's roots are in electronic and avant garde music. This album is a great example of the former, quite danceable in places, a master of the technological arts indeed. Plus bonus track by Toka Lügenvater.

20. AUSTRALIA

Eye / Aya -

"..." (M&E 427, 1998, M&E 25th Anniversary Special Edition)

The anarcho electro gothic industrial punk stylings of one J. Citizen, treating your ears whilst knocking the living shite out of the political elite. Specially remastered by the artist for this collection, plus live bonus track.

21. SWITZERLAND

Religious Overdose - "Flatus Flow Rate" (M&E 312, 1995)

New wave with a progressive Velvet Underground edge to it, fronted by Dietmar Gallhammer, another talented soul taken from us too young.

22. NORWAY

Sister Sinister - "Sister Sinister" (M&E 559, 2000)

Excellent melodic rock with gothic and progressive undertones, exquisitely topped off with the velvet voice of Solveig Jacobsen. Classy musicianship from this ultra talented Scandinavian combo.

23. SWEDEN

Dark Side Cowboys - "Review" (M&E 366, 1996)

A great collection of early demo recordings from the now well known Swedish gothic rockers, specially remastered by the band for this collection. Plus bonus tracks, including their most recent single.

24. SPAIN

Anima Mundi - "En Directo" (M&E 379, 1997)

Deliciously different Spanish progressive band with rock and folk touches. As the title implies, some of it is live.

25. BULGARIA

The Legendary Poptones & M. Nomized

"The Story Of An Acoustic Dream" (M&E 397, 1997)

Interesting avant garde work in this Bulgarian/French collaboration, the invention of the Poptones and the experience and ability of the French maestro making for a fascinating marriage of styles. Plus two bonus tracks from the Poptones and one from M. Nomized.

26. CROATIA

Space Invaders - "Planet Blue" (M&E 413, 1997)

Originally backed by Trost in Vienna, these naturally Austrian influenced purveyors of fine quality spacepunk with a distinctive indie / new wave edge really produced the goods with this CD release.

27. PORTUGAL

Ras.Al.Ghul - "Ras.Al.Ghul" (M&E 428, 1998)

Great electronic based tribal music with influences from many eastern ethnicities. I used to call it 'Benfica Bangra', you'll see why! Plus exclusive bonus mini album by Rasalasad.

28. RUSSIA

Artemiy Artemiev - "Electroshocking Works" (M&E 475, 1999)

An absolute honour to have this selection, personally chosen by and assembled for M&E by the much heralded Russian electro-experimental composer himself, featuring tracks from three of his early albums. And yes, he is related to the famous film soundtrack composer, Edward Artemiev (Solaris, The Mirror, Stalker), that's his dad.

29. ROMANIA

Levente - "Turning Pages" (M&E 596, 2003)

Quality electronic music from the multi-talented Transylvanian ex-pat, from neo-classical to deep space. Includes a bonus track and a copy of his gripping book about growing up in Ceausescu’s Romania.

30. SOUTH AFRICA

Sphinx - "The Secret Of..."

(M&E 065, 1992, M&E 25th Anniversary Special Edition)

A remastered new imagining of the classic Irre Tapes album, put together by the artist especially for this collection. A great fusion of electronica, jazz and the avant garde. The missing tracks (from the original release) are in a bonus folder, plus bonus track from Amoraim.

UNITED WORLD UNDERGROUND (MMATT CD 2, 2001)
