Another Cracking BBC Doc - Krautrock

Krafwerk, Can, Klaus Schulze and more      16/11/09

As many of you were interested in the recent Synth Britannia Documentary from BBC 4, I saw this and thought of you...

 

 

Documentary which looks at how a radical generation of musicians created a new German musical identity out of the cultural ruins of war. Between 1968 and 1977 bands like Neu!, Can, Faust and Kraftwerk would look beyond western rock and roll to create some of the most original and uncompromising music ever heard. They shared one common goal - a forward-looking desire to transcend Germany's gruesome past - but that didn't stop the music press in war-obsessed Britain from calling them Krautrock.

 

Originally aired Sunday 8th November 2009
