Excerpts from the interviews:

The song was our opinion about the mindless Neo-Nazi discussion among the public in young reunited Germany. The media ‘justified ’, ‘explained ’ and ‘understood ’, but our reality in Berlin and the suburbs looked quite different. When Sascha Bassface played the record at the Mayday, that was a statement. He even hold the 12” and showed the label to the crowd.
– Alec Empire (Atari Teenage Riot)

The house where we lived, porbably was a medical office in the 20’s. The walls were full of holes and when it rained, the water flowed through the kitchen directly into the living room.
– Matthew Herbert

Although we technically only wanted to propagate the principle of the Digital Watch, the song expresses our lifestyle at that time very well. The point is to set oneself apart, a feeling of being misunderstood – but also the urge for being misunderstood.
– Tocotronic

The most wonderful feeling that you can have on Techno? Losing control!
– DBX
