Crucial reissue from Superior Viaduct's États-Unis offshoot, reintroducing the oblique, squatter art-punk debut LP from West German performance artists / musical anarchists Die Tödliche Doris. Originally dropped in '82 on the influential Zickzack imprint (home also to Abwärts, Andy Giorbino, Palais Schaumburg and more), the interestingly emptily titled " " is a lynchpin within the expressive Geniale Dilletanten (Ingenious Dilletantes) movement incubated within West-German squats, joining the dots between the likes of all-female post-punk outfit Maleria!, industrialists Einstürzende Neubauten or the more overtly political TSS. It's TOUGH going throughout, entirely uncompromising in its shapeshifting, anarchistic, anti-everything approach.. yet as a statement documenting the re-identifying of a brand-new nation thru means of WILD, unbridled expression.. totally priceless. (NM/NM.. With booklet!).
