The songs do keep changing speed on the b-side and I'm not being trolled by 70s Germans right?

Does this record with the original mastering have intentional skips at the beginning of side 1? Read on steve hoffman forum that this is the case but wanted to make sure this is intentional and not due to a scratch that happens to be right at the beginning of side 1 on an LP I recently acquired. Thanks!

Great Protoindustrial Music. Who needs chords or melodies if he has sounds and noises and rythm off course. Yeah rythm (the so called motorik-beat) is the true german gift to the world of the 70ties. Furthermore it is the first example of sampling in rock history, as far as I know. Fortunately the band was wise and able enough to turn a threat into an advantage. After their first longplayer didn´t sell and the band spendet the small budget for the production of this record on one side, they decided to use their own single as sample on side two, over wich they improvised something new. Absolute Great. Don´t miss it !
