When they signed a record deal in 1983 their label insisted on a pronounceable name so the band made the compromise that the squiggle was pronounced Freur.Their 1983 released debut album Doot Doot was an ambitious album consisting of early techno, being a set of synthesized beats and keyboard riffs.
