This a-musik re-release combines the first two 7″ which came out before the ‘Stürmer’ LP (1982).

Both the eponymous 4-track ep (1980) by justin hoffmann, thomas meinecke, michaela melián and wilfried petzi and the 7-track ep “teilnehmende beobachtung” from 1981 were released on alfred hilsberg’s legendary zickzack platten. With “moderne welt” and the literally endless “deutschland, deutschland”, the rare “freiwillige selbstkontrolle” single contains two of the most brilliant tracks ever recorded in Germany. “Teilnehmende Beobachtung” was produced by Wirtschaftswunder’s tom dokoupil and established f.s.k.’s status as one of the most singular (and back in those days controversial) phenomena in the (west-)german postpunk/pop/underground history. The LP reissue of these two 7″s comes with a printed inner sleeve and a 8 pp. booklet with extensive linernotes (in german) by tim klütz. Excerpts from label info.
