"Geburt Einer Nation" is taken from the album An Introduction to... Laibach / Reproduction Prohibited.
OUT NOW UK/EU (US - NOV 6)
"The cover version can be seen as a cynical populist tactic by artists lacking in originality, a gesture of contempt or as a respectful example of good taste and seriousness.
Laibach's open rejection of originality makes the first view irrelevant and the new originals are too ambivalent to be either entirely contemptuous or totally respectful.
A Laibachised song is sometimes more kitsch, sometimes more serious and sometimes more emotional than the "old original" it is based on.
Laibachisation re- and de-animates a song, reviving it for long enough to dispatch it again." -- Alexei Monroe, author of Interrogation Machine:
