Krautrock from the Author: Nikolaos Kotsopoulos. Krautrock: Cosmic Rock and its Legacy charts the history of this influential music genre, from its roots in free jazz, psychedelia and the music of Karlheinz Stockhausen, to the groundbreaking experiments of Faust, Kraftwerk and Can. The late 1960s in West Germany was a period of profound breakthroughs, upheavals and reversals. Out of this climate, a music scene exploded that would forever change the face of western rock; at times anarchic, at others mystical, magickal, or utopian, it pushed rock beyond any known limits. Illustrated with concert photos, posters, record cover art and other rare visual material, and also including essays by Michel Faber, Erik Davis, David Stubbs, Ken Hollings and testimonials from Gavin Russom (Delia and Gavin/Black Meteoric Star), Plastic Crimewave, Stephen Thrower (Coil/Cyclobe), and Ann Shenton (Add N to (X)) this is an essential compendium to a music whose spirit and ideas still vibrate through contemporary culture today.

Future Days from the Author: David Stubbs. A sweeping history of the men and women who transformed postwar Germany—and created a musical genre that revolutionized rock and roll and gave birth to hip-hop. West Germany after World War II was a country in shock: estranged from its recent history, and adrift from the rest of Europe. But this orphaned landscape proved fertile ground for a generation of musicians who, from the 1960s onwards, would develop the strange and beautiful sounds that became known as Krautrock. Eschewing the easy pleasures of rock and roll and the more substantive seductions of blues and jazz, they took their inspiration from elsewhere: the mysticism of the East; the fractured classicism of Stockhausen; the grinding repetition of industry; the dense forests of the Rhineland; the endless winding of Autobahns. Faust, Neu!, Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Amon Düül II, Can, Kraftwerk—the influence of these groups’ music on Western popular music is incalculable. They were key to the development of movements ranging from post-punk to electronica and hip-hop and have directly inspired artists as diverse as David Bowie, Talking Heads, and LCD Soundsystem. Future Days is the brilliantly reported, deeply researched story of the groups that created Krautrock, and a social and cultural history of the Germany that challenged, inspired, and repelled them.

Krautrock from the Author: Frederic P. Miller. Krautrock is a generic name for the experimental music scene that appeared in Germany in the late 1960s and gained popularity throughout the 1970s, especially in Britain. BBC DJ John Peel in particular is largely credited with spreading the reputation of krautrock outside of the German- speaking world.

Extrait: Kraftwerk ( centrale electrique en allemand) est un groupe allemand de musique electronique qui a joue un role preponderant dans le developpement de cette musique. Leurs productions novatrices et experimentales ont influence un certain nombre de groupes new wave des annees 1980. La sonorite musicale du groupe se caracterise par la combinaison d'une ligne de basse et d'une rythmique electrique a une harmonique et une melodie repetitive faite a partir de synthetiseurs, accompagnee de paroles minimalistes chantees ou vocoderises dans plusieurs langues (allemand, francais, espagnol, anglais, russe, japonais, italien). Le groupe Kraftwerk a ete fonde en 1970 par Florian Schneider-Esleben et Ralf Hutter. Le premier joue de la flute et du violon, le second du piano et de l'orgue. Ils se sont rencontres pendant leurs etudes au Conservatoire de Dusseldorf a la fin des annees 1960.

Apres une premiere experience au sein du groupe allemand Organisation jugee non satisfaisante, le duo sort les albums Kraftwerk (1971), Kraftwerk 2 (1972) et Ralf und Florian (1973). Leur musique tres avant-gardiste rencontre un succes mitige. En 1974, le groupe recrute deux...

Can Band from the Author: Frederic P. Miller. Can was an experimental rock band formed in West Germany in 1968. One of the first "krautrock" groups, they rejected American influences and incorporated strong minimalist and world music elements into their often psychedelic music. Can constructed their music largely through free improvisation and editing, which bassist Holger Czukay referred to as "instant compositions." They had only occasional commercial success, with singles such as "Spoon" and "I Want More" reaching national singles charts. However, through albums such as Tago Mago (1971) and Ege Bamyasi (1972), the band exerted a considerable influence on avant-garde, experimental, underground, ambient, new wave and electronic music.
