A SOLID SHORT RADIO DOCUMENTARY ABOUT ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTAL ELECTRONIC BANDS IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC
ARTIST````BBC RADIO 4
ALBUM````KRAFTWERK: WE ARE THE ROBOTS
Marc Riley traces the career of Kraftwerk, whose 1970s electronic music owed more to the experimental German classical compositions of Karlheinz Stockhausen than to any pop tradition. They were part of a new generation of young West Germans, living in the shadow of the Cold War, who identified with the need to recapture a German cultural identity distinct from that of Britain and America.
