about this item

As some of the earliest creators of electronic music, Kraftwerk became the living, performing embodiment of a stripped-down and unique brand of German rock. Records such as Trans-Europe Express, The Man Machine and Computer World were brilliant inventions that owed no debt to the prevailing music trends of their day. They've gone on to inspire the EDM movement that's launched the careers of countless DJs and the wildly popular (and also German) band Daft Punk. With contributions from Wolfgang Flür and Karl Bartos as well as other musicians from the world of electronica, this book offers a fascinating window into the long life of a truly inimitable group.
