Along with Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle, Einstürzende Neubauten (meaning "collapsing new buildings") helped pioneer industrial music with an avant-garde mix of white-noise guitar drones, vocals verging on the unlistenable at times, and a clanging, rhythmic din produced by a percussion section consisting of construction materials, hand and power tools, and various metal objects. The band recorded several well-received albums through the 1980?s and were renowned for their visually magnificent live performances and creative video work.

The ?Halber (or ½) Mensch? album was released in 1986, and was both critically acclaimed and amongst their most commercially popular releases, going to number two in the Independent Chart. This DVD features the full-length film that was made by the band to showcase the album. Basically a full-blown promo for each song on the audio release, ?1/2 Mensch? is a stunning work of visual art, bought to DVD for the first time, and will be very popular amongst the band?s legions of fans.
