Zeitlich Vergelter - Schlagen/Dimension 7" (1985)

First known appearance of Chu ishikawa, best known for scoring the film Tetsuo: The Iron Man, as well as many of Shinya Tsukamoto's other films. Supposedly the band was made up of Chu and a member of the band Soft Ballet, but i can't find any info to confirm which member it is. The most info i've been able to find is a japanese blog entry Here (translated poorly to english: google, babelfish) which mentions a member named Neu from the band YBO², yet i can't find a mention of anyone in that band by that name. Not surprised though, YBO² crosshatches into the entire japanese scene of that time. More info about The Soft Ballet connection Here, though no way to confirm any of it. Linked at the bottom of that japanese blog is a couple of interesting pictures, click for larger.
