Propaganda: A Song From Europe

William Shaw, Smash Hits, 8 May 1985

The German pop group Propaganda released their last single, 'Dr Mabuse', over a year ago. Then they had to wait while their record company devoted time to Frankie Goes To Hollywood. And what's happened since? A new single and a lot of talk about "shocking and disgusting things". Relax, says William Shaw, only one of them's a vampire.
