Din A Testbild's 1980 debut full-length, Programm 1, long been considered something of an experimental, post-punk classic by krautrock experts. Here, the album gets a timely reissue on Berlin's Mannequin Records. The set was recorded at Klaus Schulze's studio, and contained contributions from a number of German and American experimental musicians. The album's six tracks are surprisingly varied, and feature nods towards post-punk noise, abstract electronics, dub, beat poetry, wayward krautrock, early Cabaret Voltaure, Stockhausen style tape experiments, and the pitch-black output of Joy Division. Highlights are plentiful, from the bizarre ambience and spoken words of "Age Is A State Of Mind", to the off-kilter punk-funk of opener "Die Siebzige".
