Label: Staatsakt Rec. GmbH
The robo-pop alter egos of a Hamburg comedy trio, these quasi-rediscovered electro-pioneers make sprocket-rock every bit as absurdly dada and bloop-bloop beautiful as the '80s Neue Deutsche Welle they spoof Spinal Tap-style in a 2012 mockumentary. Neon-lit Kraftwerk is the clear starting point (see: "Computerliebe"), until Italo-fuzzdance, Chicago acid and Belgian newbeat get invented. "Untergrund" is the Telex-y train trek, "Horses of Fantasy" the Neubauten noisescape, and you don't have to sprechen sie Deutsche to find "Supergao" or gutturally whispered Kaiserslautern shout-outs über-funny.
