Personnel[edit]

Einstürzende Neubauten

"Partymucke" was originally written for Peter Zadek's Andi play, which Einstürzende Neubauten performed live 50 times in 1987.

The Maifestspiele section of "Fiat Lux" contains field recordings from a demonstration in Kreuzberg, Berlin on 1 May 1987.

"Ein Stuhl in der Hölle" and the "Hirnlego" section of "Fiat Lux" were later included as part of the Strategies Against Architecture II collection.[4]

Notes[edit]

The cover art is based on a woodcut titled "Group of Seven Horses" by German Renaissance artist Hans Baldung Grien.
