Early pioneers of the German New Wave music scene, Din A Testbild were formed in 1978 by Mark Eins and Gudrun Gut (former member of Einstürzende Neubauten, Mania D. and Malaria!). Din A Testbild played a significant role in defining the avant-garde music of Berlin. Legendary is their partecipation at the “Festival Genialer Dilletanten" in 1981.
Mixed and produced by Klaus Schulze on his own record label Innovative Communication in 1980, “Programm 1” was a favourite in the playlists of the Italian cosmic dj heroes Daniele Baldelli and Dj Mozart.
This first vinyl repress celebrates the 35th anniversary of this classic electronic album.
“DIN A TESTBILD comes from Berlin, so do i. The 70’s brought the wellknown “Berlin School of Electronics”, it seems as if in the 80’s Berlin will be the home of the advanced New Wave.” (Klaus Schulze, Sept. 1980)
