Die Form is a French post-industrial and electronic band formed in
1977. The name ‘Die Form’ means ‘(the) form/shape’ in German, like the
Bauhaus diary and is a play on the English homonym ‘deformed’ and on the
French homonym ‘difforme’ (deformed). Die Form is the primary project
of electronic musician and multimedia artist Philippe Fichot. He began
by recording a number of experimental cassette releases in the late
1970s and formed the Bain Total label to release these early cassettes
and various side projects including Krylon Hertz, Mental Code, Camera
Obscura, Eva-Johanna Reichstag, Hurt and Fine Automatic.

In 1982 Die Form released their debut vinyl album, “Die Puppe” in a
limited edition of 1,000 copies. These are the first esoteric electronic
experiments, often improvised, from what would become the sound of the
project. Underlying themes of eroticism, death and other ‘taboo’
subjects are apparent in both the music and the album artwork, which
Philippe also produces. The album was recorded with entirely analog
equipment (Roland MC4 Micro-Composer, TR-808 Rhythm Composer, ARP 2600,
Kawai 60F, Revox B77). Songs range from hypnotic, minimalistic proto-IDM
to pure, daring experimental sound manipulation. Unable to fit into
any genre, “Die Puppe” is in a class of music all its own.

All songs have been remastered from the original master tapes for
vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is an
exact replica of the original 1982 edition designed by Philippe Fichot,
with a photograph of a porcelain doll holding a syringe. Each album
includes two post cards with never before seen photos of Philippe with
lyrics and liner notes by the band. Prepare to indulge your lustiest
hedonistic fetishes.
