Notes

Both tracks of this single made it to be appear later on the 4AD label sampler Presage(s) BAD11

Psychotic Tanks were a short-lived post-punk band whose alone release was “Security Idiots”, a Conny Plank produced single issued in 1980 on the equally obscure Idiot label.
The band counted Bjorn, Roberty Crash, Schengel, and Schruuv as its members.
The B-side of the single, "Let's Have a Party," was included on 4AD's Presage(s) compilation, which was released later in 1980.
The song was reprised on Natures Mortes, a Japan-only compilation from 1981 that was reissued on CD in 1997.
Sound-wise, they resembled other labelmates such as Bauhaus and the Birthday Party.
Fitting with most of the other 4AD acts of the early '80s, little is known of the members' involvements that followed, if any. ~

[from SOUNDS magazine 12 July 1980, page 4:
"Psychotic Tanks, a German band who are trying to live in London, have a single called 'Let's Have A Party' on their own Idiot Records. They haven't given us a price so you'll have to check it out from
