"A killer collection of Cologne-based legend Harald "Sack" Ziegler's greatest hits, fully re-mastered from his long out-of-print vinyl and cassette-only releases. None of these 22 tracks has ever been available on CD before. Besides his incredibly large discography produced as a solo artist over the past twenty years, Harald "Sack" Ziegler has released three critically- acclaimed albums with F.S. Blumm as Sack & Blumm, and continuously collaborated with Mouse On Mars, both live and in the studio. An innovator and pioneer of the '80s German tape scene, Ziegler is a techno-Dadaist composer/pop artist of the highest order, known for his frenetic live shows with toy instruments. His shimmering mix of cheap electronica, German vocals, weird rhythms, samples and guitars almost always manages to stick to a more or less loose song format tending to appeal not only to fans of early German new wave, but also to anyone who has an inexhaustible love for wonky melodies and funky sound bites. A master of many instruments, Ziegler is as likely to whip out a French horn as he is a beat box, and "Punkt" collects more pop/noise/child music insouciance than you can shake a toy flute at."
