"After more than 12 years Propaganda is back with a new vinyl release. The track 'Valley of the Machine Gods' appears like the result of a lengthy stay in a foreign place, but now they are back in their good old Dusseldorf again (also the home town of Kraftwerk). It sounds as if nothing wants to remember them to those times where Dr. Mabuse was haunting London and the other European capitals. No more synthmelodies, no Teutonic beats and none of Trevor Horn's bombastics. With the number of comebacks of glorious '80s outfits who obviously try to copy their past instead of following their personal musical development, Propaganda left the '80s way behind and they do this in a musical climate where, the famous exception here excluded, its more fashionable to go fishing in retrospect waters than to search and develop. This 12" release comes with remixes by Musiccargo, Adam Kroll and Propaganda themselves. Probably the most amazing remix is the Music Cargo remix which sounds very much like the New York disco-punk tracks from D.F.A. On the more techno side there is a great minimal-ish one by Adam Kroll (known for his releases on Traum/Kompakt)."
