ZANG TUMMM TUMB ARTICLES “the first draft of history”

PROPAGANDA: Dr Mabuse (ZTT) While a lot of music seems to be taking the soft option these days, ZTT come up with an ideal successor to their last release, Frankie Goes To Hollywoods “Relax”. “Dr Mabuse” is bold, striking, exciting and totally enjoyable. Its all about “selling your soul” with lots of Germanic voices sounding mysterious over a dynamic Kraftwerk-style driving rhythm. Trevor Horns production gives it an epic quality, while the German group shroud the whole thing in drama and mystery. Totally over the top, it deserves to be Single Of The Fortnight.
