Die Partei – “La Freiheit Des Geistes” – [Bureau B.]
In 1981 Tim Dokoupil and Walter Dahn – members of the German underground music scene — decided to record a whole album with the concept band name Die Partei. The game plan was to record the whole album on a weekend, music should be electronic and danceable and sprinked with some film quotes. They restricted to using few instruments, mostly early day synthesizers and cheap guitars as well has have contrasts in the music. Even the album was mixed the same weekend including the album cover design. The result is a prime example of very early day underground dance electronica where some elements are surprisingly new sounding even if recorded 1981. The trademark German synth melodies appear and the carefully programmed sequences do their atomic belly dances.
