Mekanik Destruktiw Komandoh - Berlin (12'', 1983)

Raw post-punk from Berlin (Germany)

Named after the great Magma album of the same name, MDK musically resembles their namesake very little. Instead of the prog com krautrock cum hippie art jam that Magma is, MDK taps into the Rough Trade/post punk of their time (admittedly with a tad of krautrock). Their sound is one of contrasts: tight playing with rough production, guttural spit-out vocals with semi-smooth sax. Alexander Hacke (Von Borsig, P1/E, Blässe, Sentimentale Jugend, Sprung Aus Den Wolken and one of the early members of Einstürzende Neubauten) was one of the former member.

I spent SO LONG looking for this vinyl!! If only I had looked for your blog instead! ;P

I saw them on a Target video promo reel that came with the Screamers DVD. AWESOME music. I only wish I could find their footage form Target video.
