The first SPK single, the “punk rock” one. It provides glimmers of the dark industrial metal-clangers they’d become, mostly in inappropriate synth-bursts that cry out in pain during this chugging song.

When I was 13 or 14 I remember seeing my first “Surgical Penis Klinik” record at Rasputin’s Records in Berkley, CA. Cue guffawing. (Read my post about record shopping in 1981 Berkeley here). By then SPK were full-blown industrial terrorists. I can’t listen to that music. See what you think of their earlier stuff from 1979 here.
