Propaganda is a German group formed in Dusseldorf in 1982 by Ralf Dorper, Andréas Thein and Suzanne Freytag.
Their first single "Dr Mabuse" was released in 1984 and was a definite success, both across the Channel and in Germany.
The title "Duel", which will reveal them to the eyes of the whole world, arrives a year later in 1985 and quickly becomes a planetary hit.
Released the album "A secret wish" which was praised by critics and also became a real commercial success. Album containing a second huge nugget, the now cult "P: machinery" which will be a hit in France, the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland.
It will take 5 years and the year 1990 to see the release of the group's second album "1234". Album from which will be extracted the single "Heaven give me words" with average success, "Only one Word" which will pay the luxury of having as guitarist David Gilmour of Pink Floyd and also with average success.
And finally "Wound in my heart" which will be the only one to achieve a more than honorable journey, especially in South America. And which will be the last notorious success of the group.
Propaganda, another excellent group made in Germany !

1984 ... the foundations are laid. Everything is now ready for a flood of hits. And hits, there will be !
1985 ... starting with this one ! They sign here a first planetary mega hit which literally explodes their notoriety and positions them direct as one of the biggest phenomena of the moment. HU-GE !
1985 ... they reoffend directly afterwards. Here comes what will remain as their biggest hit and which is still considered to this day as one of the biggest hits of the 80s. MAS-TER-FUL !
1985 ... a third title to end the year in style. Undeniably, one of the most inspired groups of the decade
1990 ... 5 years have passed. No more dark side, back to light. A dark side that will have made their success, which will not necessarily be the case for the bright side despite pieces of obvious quality
1990 ... a blatant metamorphosis compared to Propaganda V1. Everything is now played in calm and sweetness
1990 ... even if they will not produce anything exceptional during this decade 90, the qualitative level remains of very high level. And that's the main thing !
1991 ... a beautiful finale for one of the best bands of the decade. A group unique in its kind and which will have left in the musical history of the 80s several exceptional titles of which they can be proud !
