Deutsche Schäferhunde- s/t PLACEBO 7" 1982
More synth-oriented stuff you ask? I'll be drawing my attention to German post-punk in a few posts time, but for now here's Deutsche Schäferhunde (German Shepherd Dogs). These guys were a four piece from Eggstätt, near Munich. On the back sleeve, in true minimal DIY style, there is an unspecified telephone number beneath the christian names, and only the christian names, of the players involved. The same goes for those who are thanked. The group were Detlef (vocals), Manfred (guitar, synthesizer), Michael (bass, synthesizer), and Tommi (Eckhardt, perhaps? synthesizer, drums), and it's a shame they never released anything else beyond this limited edition single (the original was supposedly 500 copies only). This was a 1982 release, and put out by a label called Placebo, perhaps the American punk/electronic noise label of the same name, I don't know. On some versions there was a fourth title called Abschied, but not with this one. Still, there's some fierce production across these three tracks, making those synths and drum machines hit hard. Quite a cult bit of vinyl these days, so much so that the next post will be a 7" you'll be able to pick up anywhere for less than 1 EUR...
