PROPAGANDA: Duel (ZTT)

Last time I reviewed the singles I had to write about “The Nine Lives Of Dr Mabuse” by this new German group Propaganda: it made Single Of The Fortnight and proved to one of the best records of last year. Now theyre back, this time with the greatest song ever made. Well, maybe not ever, but its the best today even though tomorrow I might change my mind. A ‘concept, “Duel” has a dark and light, happy and sad, good and evil side: side two. “Jewel”, is the same song given a well mad techno-punk treatment. ZTT describe them as “Abba in Hell”—therefore “Duel” must be Abba in Heaven.
