"Dagmar melde dich!": the call sounds multiple times during the last seconds of the 2:30 minute long track "Überlieferung Joseph Pfeuffer 3.6.76", a contribution by Die Tödliche Doris for the sampler "Lieber Zuviel Als Zuwenig" (1981).

Dagmar Dimitroff (1960-1990) was the first female drummer of the West Berlin post-punk artist band Die Tödliche Doris (1980-1987). On 4 September 1981, Dimitroff, together with Wolfgang Müller and Nikolaus Utermöhlen, sang at the Geniale Dilletanten festival at the Tempodrom. In the same year, the artist also published several texts and drawings in the Merve volume "Geniale Dilletanten". Also the legendary short film "The Life of Sid Vicious" was shot in 1981. In the film, Dimitroff's two-year-old son embodies the provocative anti-icon from London.

But then, why was Dagmar Dimitroff called upon?

With a stipend from the Berlin Senate I started researching on Dagmar Dimtiroff, who, as a 17-year old, was imprisoned for 10 months in the GDR before coming to West-Berlin. This is a book in the making.
