Classic Album Review: KMFDM | Retro / Agogo

The electronic Teutonics drop a pair of darkly compelling compilations.

This came out in 1999 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


Kidnap Madonna For Drug Money? Kiss Michael Flatley’s Dead Mother? Kill Monkeys For Dinner Monday? No, no & no.

This digital hardcore collective’s acronym handle is based on a German phrase. But after listening to this pair of simultaneously released collections — one a greatest hits disc of synth-driven singles like Juke Joint Jezebel, the other a slate of rare and unreleased tracks like a mutant cover of U2’s Mysterious Ways — you’ll realize these electronic Teutonics’ handle should really stand for Kooks Making Freaky Dance Music.
