Retro Saturday: Propaganda Mk II

Previously featured the original incarnation of German ZTT act Propaganda on here before, however they did evolve (for want of a better word): same name, different band.

There was a new singer - Betsi Miller, replacing the legendary Claudia Brucken, and the line-up included two ex members of Simple Minds.

The newer, more 'radio-friendly' Propaganda released "Heaven Give Me Words", in 1990, which was co-written by Howard Jones (who I was never a fan of), but I thought this was quite a nice record although admittedly nowhere near the dizzy heights of "Dr Mabuse" or "Duel" or their fantastic debut album "A Secret Wish" which was full of fantastic 80s German synth-pop.
