Play Loud! Productions presents the first vinyl reissue (along with a tribute album) of German band Die Regierung's 1984 debut album Supermüll, which Michael Ruff (Spex magazine) called "the best German record of the 80s." In his liner notes for the Sturm und Twang! compilation (Big Cat, 1995), Christoph Gurk writes, "Led by an acidhead, who is already in his thirties, the singer/songwriter band has lived through an erratic career. Originally founded as a home-recording outfit, Die Regierung (The Government) released a seminal debut album (Supermüll/Super Trash/1984) in the aftermath of German New Wave (NDW)." With Supermüll, Die Regierung anticipated the sound that, years later, became known as the Hamburger Schule, and set the tone for German independent music in the early '90s. Die Regierung had a huge influence on Germany's most famous independent Hamburger Schule band, Tocotronic, but they never hit it big. Now this seminal and very influential album is reissued on vinyl, remastered by Hans Joachim Irmler and Andreas Schmid at Faust Studio. The second disc is a tribute album, featuring Schneider TM, Die Sterne, Doc Schoko, Dirk von Lowtzow (Tocotronic), Nina Reisinger, Gebrüder Teichmann, OMO feat. Herman Herrmann, Power & Charme, Pascal Fuhlbrügge, Julia Wilton, Steine, DJ Marcelle/Another Nice Mess, and Beck Harris. Limited to 500 copies.
