OK, I now discover this is a different band from the rest (so that makes at
least 4 Dark Star's, apart from darXtar).  Actually, it's just one guy, a
German named Wolfgang Reffert, who also has a radio show named Pleasuredome
on Radio Dreyeckland.  (?)  Anyway, he released his first album, "Headtrip,"
back in 1992, then "Travelogue" in 1993.  He has also had some cassette
releases on M&E ("States of Mind," "No Sign of Intelligent Life," and
"Arrival of the Masters of Confusion.")

Travelogue was issued on the Strange Ways label, which *does* now have a
sub-label called (strangely enough) Dark Star.

Arrggghhhh!!!  And we thought four "Masters of the Universe" comps. was
