Propaganda – The Artist/s

Propaganda are a German synth-pop band formed in Düsseldorf in 1982. They were one of the initial roster of acts signed to Trevor Horn’s ZTT label, between 1984 and 1986, during which they released the critically acclaimed album A Secret Wish.

P:Machinery – The Song

‘P:Machinery’ is a song by German new wave/synth-pop band Propaganda, released as the third single from their debut album A Secret Wish. The song reached the top 10 in various countries across Europe, including France and Italy, but was most successful in Spain, where it peaked at number one. In the US, the song reached the top 10 on the dance chart. The top line for the track was written by David Sylvian, who was approached to produce for the band but ultimately did not.

The Pawn Chess Piece – The Shape

This vinyl single has been reworked into the silhouette of a Pawn Chess piece. Chess is a board game played between two players. It is sometimes called Western chess, or international chess to distinguish it from related games such as xiangqi. The current form of the game emerged in Southern Europe during the second half of the 15th century after evolving from the medieval game of Shatranj (Arabic) or chatrang (Persian), which in turn evolved from the ancient Indian game, Chaturanga. Today, chess is one of the world’s most popular games, played by millions of people worldwide. Chess is an abstract strategy game and involves no hidden information. It is played on a square chessboard with 64 squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. At the start, each player (one controlling the white pieces, the other controlling the black pieces) controls sixteen pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns. The object of the game is to checkmate the opponent’s king, whereby the king is under immediate attack (in “check”) and there is no way for it to escape. There are also several ways a game can end in a draw.
