German electro outfit Propagnda released a seminal LP of contemporary European electronic music in 1985 and wrote history by only doing so.Their whole political and artistic approach was very true to their name.Their second single p:machinery was withdrawn from the market soon after it's release in Germany as the single's sleeve was praising the German terrorist group "Red Faction Army''.If you stick to the music Propaganda were the bastard childs of Throbbing Gristle,Kraftwerk and Abba as they combined industrial sound with pure pop esthetics.Controversy within the band led to an early split.The band reformed in 1990 making a quite good second album of catchy synth pop but synths were a thing of the 80's and the album flopped comercially.
