Both Jim and I have posted umpteen titles by this berserk Neue Deutsche Welle avatar over time. Here's one of his most essential. Butzmann has been plying overt eccentricity for quite some time, as "Wundershone Ruckkoppelungen" (released archivally on Vinyl-On-Demand) documents via his work from the late 60's/early 70's, though he'd find his true metier during the NDW zeitgeist, a period during which his work was hugely influential, having been an early member of D.A.F. "Das Madchen..." was Butzmann's second full length missive to gain release under his own name (he also operated as Din-A Testbild), after "Vertrauensmann Des Volkes" and it's a stunner. While the dadaist tendencies and overt Residentialisms that he's become known for are much in evidence here, the sleeve's Sky Records-like graphics are no mistake either, as much of this successfully situates his mad hatter gambits within more overtly synthy climates, climaxing with the brain damaging "Incendio", a monster track with a vertigo-inducing electronic hysteria to it that begs comparison with none other than Igor Wakhevitch's Dr. Faust!
