6 Music Plays It Again - The Man Machine - Kraftwerk, Krautrock and the German Electronic Revolution - Episode 1
The Man Machine - Kraftwerk, Krautrock And The German Electronic Revolution (part 1 of 2). Another chance to hear Jarvis Cocker present the story of one of popular music's most influential groups and their contemporaries.
This is the history of a group of musicians that have had a significant impact on acts and movements as diverse as David Bowie and Coldplay, hip hop and the new romantics. The programme features a rare interview with Kraftwerk founding member and only remaining original Ralph Hutter, and also examines the part played in the "Krautrock" movement by the other German electronic music exponents of the Seventies such as Neu! and Tangerine Dream.
