They wrap you up in a cacophony of destructive and frightening sounds and then Blixa sings to you and you have to listen to it 50 times because it's lodged itself in your psyche. Rhythmic, repetitive, innovative, amazing and it'll improve your German language skills. I love it!

With its wonderful depiction of equine micturation and Biba Kopf's insightful and poetic essay on the music-making practices of EN, this is perhaps my favourite EN album -a hard choice to make from so many greats, and one I have been listening to regularly for 18 years.

So, `House of Lies'? Well, we begin with `Prolog', a tersely spoken monologue interspersed with bursts of cacophonous noise made from scraping, falling and generally apocalyptic industrial detritus. Blixa Bargold (their singer, who also used to moonlight as guitarist for Nick Cave's Bad Seeds) intones in German `we could but...' and each time his answer is obliterated, as if any aspiring political manifesto-making is a waste of effort, doomed to failure. This then fades into `Feurio' a word with meanings of fire and fury, in which the case of Marinus Van Der Lubbe, a possible perpetrator of the Reichstag Fire, is reconsidered, set against a pulsing beat which breeds a sense of impatient intensity. Then, by way of counterpoint, we are treated to a `A Chair in Hell', a lilting European folk tune, driven along by handclaps and strumming. And then more insistent percussive structures emerge with the orchestral `House of Lies', taking us into grandiose territory as Blixa forcefully intones a choral epic which finally dissipates to the sounds of broken glass. Never before has the evocation of devastation sounded so beautiful.

`Epilog' ends this particular suite of related pieces, before the trilogy of Fiat Lux/Maifestpiele/Hirnlego begins with the sounds of buzzing bumblebees.

I am a self-confessed fanatic, and have been for 18 years of their incredible career- I even wear a tattoo of their tribal cyclops-man logo on my back (`in the kingdom of the blind, the one eyed man is king'). That I have selected an album from 1989 should not mislead you into thinking that for all their reaction to the denim-clad DNA of American rock that they too have become dinosaurs. Far from it in fact, as I can happily report after recently witnessing a rare UK live performance. With its wonderful depiction of equine micturation and Biba Kopf's essay on the music-making practices of EN, it just happens to be my favourite from an extensive and ever-expanding discography full of distinctive sonic ventures. Years of bashing metal and wielding drills may have brought on a little rheumatism in their hands (!), but they remain fresh and innovative- continuing to construct new devices for creating interesting sounds, whether it be for a special gallery installation, a one-off concert performance, or even the repeated listening of a commercially released album (which itself is becoming rarer as their anarchistic ethos has led them to cut out the commercial middlemen, so that now supporters subscribe to their website, receiving webcasts and downloads of their work-in-progress as reward for subsidising the creative process, at the end of which the loyal supporter receives a copy of the finished album).
So, `House of Lies'? Well, we begin with `Prolog', a tersely spoken monologue interspersed with bursts of cacophonous noise made from scraping, falling and generally apocalyptic industrial detritus.

Haus der Luge is probably the easiest Neubauten album if you have not heard them before. Blixa Bargeld (over 6ft tall, penchant for stapling hair to his jacket for no discernable reason) is probably best known for his work with Nick Cave but here he sings in his native German. Neubauten often use unconventional instruments to great effect.
This album features a folky number 'Stuhle in der holle' which is much less abraisive than most of their tracks. The title track is probaly the stand out as rhymically it is fantastic.
The second side (on vinyl) allegedlly is recorded during a riot and it certainly sounds like FM Einheit has been wandering around in a riot taping it.
If you like Rammstein but find them a bit soft, you could do worse than this.
