"The brothers Oehlen are stellar, oft-decorated visual artists with a long history of thorny, helpful interventions into the world of music. Albert has been a Red Krayola mainstay and provocateur since the mid-1980s, and is also responsible for the fabulous Lelterwagen label. Markus drummed in the legendary German punk band Mittagspause, and records for Leiterwagen under the name Don Hobby. They were there as punk shaded into post-punk and scraped together the Deutschmarks for an analog synth. They're still here as various reissues of DAF, Der Plan, and Palals Schaumburg hang out in 'new releases' sections and find themselves spun by electroclash DJs. And they're still making music as odd, is-that-funny?, and darkly otherworldly as the early Suicide rehearsal tapes that recently saw the light of day."
