German: The first Propaganda was a musical group formed in Düsseldorf , Germany in early 1982 by Ralf Dörper (a member of the German industrial band Die Krupps), Andreas THEIN and Suzanne Freytag. The trio recorded some demos for future release. Journalist Paul Morley signed the band, with the inclusion of classically-trained musician and composer Michael Mertens and Claudia Brücken, now a five-member band to Trevor Horn’s Records label. The group relocated to the United Kingdom and released the single “Dr. Mabuse”, which reached the UK Top 30.

Thein left the band before it began recording its debut album “A Secret Wish”. ZTT’s plan to have Trevor Horn produce Propaganda’s debut had to be abandoned because of the huge success Horn was having with Frankie Goes to Hollywood, so Stephen Lipson (Horn’s engineer) took his place. The release of the album was preceded by the release of single “Duel”, which became a hit for the band.

    There's lots of Propagandas, but at the same time there's only one Propaganda.

    As a fourteen year old, this sounded incredibly other-worldly, mysterious and exotic to me. Still does. Rare example of an '80s sound' that doesn't sound dated at all.

    One of the best groups from the 80s! Who has heard their unreleased come back album from 1998? It's pretty decent! I have it and hanging onto it for dear life.

    I bought 1985 hits compilation album at a used record shop a several years ago. Among them, P-Machinery by Propaganda was second to none. What an industrial pop.

    From the fringes of German post-punk to pop stars...Leaving a wonderful début album in the process.
