DIE KRUPPS-FOUNDATION, CD, 1997 (RECORDED: 1981-1990), GERMANY MP3/Flac


Clangorous and tight jawed meat machine pounding from the smile-free wing of the Neue Deutsche Welle scene. These cats would later gain much greater renown formulating the genre of EBM, eventually culminating in their collaborating with one Nitzer Ebb, but at the early stage  documented on these live recordings from 1981 (contemporary with their debut album Stahlwerksymphonie) what's heard here sounds more like an especially focused Einsturzende Neubauten emulating DAF. You'll find some extra EMB stuff filling out the remaining space on this CD, but that's all sorta outside the Mutant remit.
