Indians Fall In Love - When The Rain Fell Down 7" (1987, Self-Released)

Here is a really cool German 7" in the dark/cold guitar wave-goth style, with a really impressive B-Side called "Eternal Dance". The A-Side has that late 80s/early 90s German sound, like a primitive private-press version of early Pink Turns Blue, Blessing In Disguise, + the rest of that scene... and is alright. The B-Side, "Eternal Dance" is the highlight and has some obvious Cure influences, but also reminds me quite a bit of some of the songs by the later German band Fallen Apart or the German Danse Macabre ("Wear Away", "She Believes", etc.). Maybe even a gothier version of the Colour Moves 7". It also reminds me quite a bit of the demo version of "Christian Hydrophobia" by Decay (another German band). I could keep going but highly doubt if most people reading this would have any clue what I'm talking about...  :)

Discogs has this one incorrectly listed as 1986... one of the songs was recorded in '86, and the other in Sept. 1987. They also have a myspace page with some additional tracks (perhaps released on tape(s)??):
