C’mon everybody, let’s have a party with Germany’s (?) Psychotic Tanks! A very few bands have ever mastered to spread such joy as these happy fellas who sure sound like they knew how to party, and  make Wanda Jackson sounds like a bitter and sour old frumpie at the same time. Totally take no prisoners happy-happy-joy-joy punx!

I found a myspace site for the band and even a few videos on youtube, which seems a bit odd as they only did 3 gigs according to the spare info on the myspace site. Unfortunately I can’t smell them through the monitor, but I’m sure they smelt very nice as they were from Cologne. One of the members started Tank of Danzig later on, and for those of you who’s into annoying remixes of songs might wanna check them out.

    Security Idiots is easily one of the best kraut songs I’ve heard. Let’s have a party? Sure! As long as we skip the b-side.

    Wow, Martin finally posted a decent record! Way to go. I like this…it is somewhat reminiscent of the Gang of Four…

      “A” side is reminiscent of early Gang of Four to me. “B” side is somewhat Flipperesqe??? Actually it is just a unique record…

    Wrong year…the single was released in early 1980. And yes, the Psychotic Tanks are from Cologne, Germany.

    post-punk from germany from 1980 sung in english? that’s not that usual I think and was considered pretty uncool then. At that time everybody sang in german (or in french in france etc)

    This is a really great 7″ – punk wasn’t all about being up-tempo, and this is a king perfect.
