At the halfway point in this project we’ve visited eleven countries. I will do a final listing on day 10, but I’m not going to add to that total today.
Yesterday I posted an English artist singing in German, so here is a German band singing in English. Propaganda were formed out of the German industrial band Die Krupps and represented an attempt to find an unlikely common ground between Abba and D.A.F. Signed to Trevor Horn’s ZTT and mentored by Paul Morley, they did have a chart hit with Duel, but arguably ‘The Nine Lives of Dr Mabuse’ is their crowning glory. Despite some fantastic music the 80s will never be a ‘cool’ decade in the way that 50s and 60s fashions now seem chic, but Propaganda came the closest of anyone to defining a kind of 80s elegance.
