The second disc will hold bonus material including the complete 20-minute cassette mix of “Duel”, Trevor Horn’s previously unreleased “Dr. Mabuse (Thousand Eyes…)” remix, a work-in-progress version of “The Chase” and ten-minute 12′ mixes of “Frozen Faces” and “p:Machinery”.
Propaganda is a German synthpop group, formed in 1982 by Ralf Doerper (a member of the German industrial band Die Krupps) soon joined by Andreas Thein and vocalist Susanne Freytag. They were one of the initial roster of acts signed to Trevor Horn’s ZTT label, between 1984 and 1986, during which they released the critically acclaimed album “A Secret Wish”.
