I had a vague feeling this might have been a slightly early April’s fool from The Quietus, because, of course, there had to have been a band called Grauzone from Switzerland in 1981. But this album is great (at first listen), escaping the confines of that dull Gang of Four, “post-punk” sound with bits of Agustus Pablo, bierkeller and some cool synths.

@leonp Cool Neu 2-like slowing everything down at the end of the album. There’s only 8 years between the two albums; it’d be nice to construct a non-Anglicised genealogy.
