P.D. - Inweglos

If that early P16.D4 tape tickled you, then this further slab of German industrial pre-history will make your entire month. Originally issued by the band on Wahrnehmungen as an LP in 1980, then reissued with four bonus tracks on a CD by Absurd in 2004, this was a provocation against the German new wave drivel being perpetrated in the wake of punk rock at the time. Lyrics drip with sarcasm: "Do the disco, do the disco, dance baby dance, you know you like it, do the disco". Yeah, sure. The band, of course, is Permutative Distorsion or Progressive Disco or P16.D4. Following some icy "pop" (ahem) disdain, the band slips into TG-inspired synth nausea and heaps of scrumptious tape loop gloop. Speaking historically, this LP sits alongside The New Blockaders "Changez les Blockeurs", SPK "Information Overload Unit", Merzbow "Material Action 2", Nurse With Wound "To the Quiet Men from a Tiny Girl", and a very few others as one of the defining documents of the dawn of what we now call industrial noise music.
