For some ridiculous reason I was really into West German Hardcore in the late 1980's. It probably had a lot to do with the awesome photo's I saw of some of these bands in Maximum Rock n Roll's European photo 'zine. I also had met and made friends with a couple of Krauts who had visted S.F. and turned me on to much of this stuff.
The Idiots were from Germany and were a band that my German buddies had compiled on a mixed tape along with the Skeezicks, Challenger Crew, Unwanted Youth, Tu Du Hospital, Spermbirds, etc. The song they taped me by the Idiots was the first song on the LP, "deathbrains". The song was so thrashy and violent sounding that I immediatly started searching for the LP. Of course in those days finding obscure non American Hardcore was a real chore. I think I finally got the Record from a trade from another German pal. Almost none of the other songs on the LP came close to the furosity of "deathbrains". The record is good, but kept me wanting more of the thrash I had originally heard from these guys. Tracks 1,5,6,7,9,10 are sick(songs 1,6, and 9 are the thrash standouts).
