Originally released in 2001 on CD-r by Ouzel Records, "Untitled for Now" is the great pop/rock work by F&C Petchanatz (KLIMPEREI): this version contains 20 carefree songs through retro sounds and unforgettable melodies (the original version included two more tracks, not available here). Deleted was the first French band on Ouzel Records: I felt in love with Deleted when I heard the track they provided me for the "Ouzel 2nd Anniversary Compilation", released in summer 2000. Now you can download the album in mp3 @ 192 Kb/s!

In the year 2000 I released a 4 CD-R series, called the "Ouzel Dead Files", with the aim of documenting the work of split up bands somehow related to Ouzel Records current projcets. From today you can download the first CD of that series, dedicated to P.u.S., the band I myself used to play with, when I still was a highschool student. We released a vinyl EP and several demo-tapes throughout 3 years of activity (1994~1996). All lyrics are in Italian.
