German Pop Music from the Author: Uwe SchĂĽtte. The development of German pop music represents a fascinating cultural mirror to the history of post-war Germany, reflecting sociological changes and political developments. While film studies is an already established discipline, German pop music is currently emerging as a new and exciting field of academic study. This pioneering companion is the first volume to provide a comprehensive overview of the subject, charting the development of German pop music from the post-war period 'Schlager' to the present 'Diskursrock'. Written by acknowledged experts from Germany, the UK and the US, the various chapters provide overviews of pertinent genres as well as focusing on major bands such as CAN, Kraftwerk or Rammstein. While these acts have shaped the international profile of German pop music, the volume also undertakes in-depth examinations of the specific German contributions to genres such as punk, industrial, rap and techno. The survey is concluded by an interview with the leading German pop theorist Diedrich Diederichsen. The volume constitutes an indispensible handbook for any student, teacher and scholar in the area of German studies interested in contemporary popular culture.

Samtcord Strass Soundgewitter from the Author: Ulli Engelbrecht. Die Geschichten im Lesebuch von Ulli Engelbrecht drehen sich um die Rockmusik der 1970er- und 1980er-Jahre und sind so, oder so ähnlich, auch immer die Geschichten der anderen. Man war schließlich nie allein, wenn Platten von Jethro Tull, The Police oder Bruce Springsteen abgespielt, wenn Videos von Ina Deter, Madonna oder Talk Talk angesehen oder Konzerte und Festivals besucht wurden. Wie oft erlebt man Menschen, die mit einem erregt-freudigen „Ach, hör' mal ...!“ den Lautstärkeregler am Radio hochdrehen, wenn ein Song aus „ihren“ Jahren urplötzlich in die Gegenwart katapultiert wird. Oder auch dies: Man nenne in geselliger Runde nur einen Bandnamen aus jenen Epochen und schon macht das Gehirn eine Rolle rückwärts und alles das, was man an Ereignissen, Erlebnissen und Episoden verdrängt, verloren oder vergessen geglaubt hat, sprudelt nun ungefiltert heraus: „Mensch, weißt du noch...!“

Krautrocksampler from the Author: Julian Cope. A la fin des années 1960, l'Allemagne de l'Ouest se met à table pour plus d'une décennie de choucroute musicale bienvenue dans l'ère du krautrock, cette kosmische musik typiquement teutonne qui vit des groupes comme Can, kraft-werk, Tangerine Dream, Amon Düül, Faust, Popol Vuh, Neu !, Cluster, La Düsseldorf, etc., produire un Free-rock à la fois cosmique et tellurique. réunion dans un même ascenseur de Sun Ra, des Stooges et des MC5. La génération post-Stockhausen ira plus loin que la plus reculée des planètes, et frappera plus fort que le punk. D'Amon Duül jouant tels des péquenauds sous acide à Tangerine Dream et son ambiant si planante qu'en comparaison The Orb passerait pour un groupe de speed metal, en passant le violon spectral de Tong Conrad. les marteaux-piqueurs de Faust ou le Seven Up dopé de Timothy Learg dans les montagnes suisses, le krautrocker Julian Cope raconte à sa manière l'histoire de cette musique qui avale toute la misère du monde et où retentissent aussi, dans un proche lointain, le Velvet Underground, les Monks, John Peel et PIL. Hawkind, Jog Division, Iggy Pop, John Cale et Lou Reed. Funkadelik. Brian Eno... Avec en appendice un Top-50 tout en couleur des meilleurs disques de krautrock où sont décrites avec amour les fulgurances cosmiques d'un genre dont l'influence se prolongera bien au-delà des années 1980. Yen a qui disent que le hasch vous transforme en épave. mais faites tourner quand même. C'est lui qui l'a dit.

Future Days from the Author: David Stubbs. West Germany following the Second World War was a country in shock: estranged from its recent history, and adrift from the rest of Europe. But this disorientating landscape proved fertile ground for a generation of musicians who, from the 1960s onwards, would develop the experimental and various sounds that became known as Krautrock. Eschewing the Anglo-American jazz/blues tradition, they took their inspiration from elsewhere: the mysticism of the East; the fractured classicism of Stockhausen; the pneumatic repetition of industry and the dense forests of the Rhineland; the endless winding of Autobahns. Faust, Neu!, Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Amon Dl II, Can and Kraftwerk. These may not all be household names, but the influence of their ruminative, expansive compositions upon Western popular music is incalculable. These groups were key to the development of postpunk, electronica and ambient music. Without them Bowie would not have made his Berlin trilogy, Talking Heads would have been a straight-ahead rock band, and the Pet Shop Boys would have a completely different stage act. Future Days is an in-depth study of this meditative, sometimes abstract, often very beautiful music and the groups that made it, throwing light on the social and political context that informed them. It's an indispensable book for those wanting to understand how much of today's music came about, and to discover a wealth of highly influential and pioneering musicians.

Perspectives On German Popular Music from the Author: Michael Ahlers. In this book, native popular musicologists focus on their own popular music cultures from Germany, Austria and Switzerland for the first time: from subcultural to mainstream phenomena; from the 1950s to contemporary acts. Starting with an introduction and two chapters on the histories of German popular music and its study, the volume then concentrates on focused, detailed and yet concise close readings from different perspectives (including particular historical East and West German perspectives), mostly focusing on the music and its protagonists. Moreover, these analyses deal with very original specific genres such as Schlager and Krautrock as well as transcultural genres such as Punk or Hip Hop. There are additional chapters on characteristically German developments within music media, journalism and the music industry. The book will contribute to a better understanding of German, Austrian and Swiss popular music, and will interconnect international and especially Anglo-American studies with German approaches. The book, as a consequence, will show close connections between global and local popular music cultures and diverse traditions of study.
