Kraftwerk
3-D: The Catalogue

If you didn’t snatch a ticket to one of Kraftwerk’s 3-D live shows this summer, you can make it up to yourself with this piece of documentation! 3-D: The Catalogue is available in five different formats, ranging from DVD and LP versions of highlights from the tour setlist to vinyl, CD and Blu-Ray boxes with all eight of Kraftwerk’s (main) albums performed in full, plus various trimmings. Wow!

Karl Bartos
Communication

The Trocadero label repress Karl Bartos’ 2003 synth-pop gem Communication. Bartos was an integral member of Kraftwerk and this album was his solo debut. The initial release was poorly marketed, meaning these great synth driven songs went mostly unnoticed. Communication updates the Kraftwerk formula, with vocodered vocals and elaborate synth hooks.

Kraftwerk
Ralph & Florian

That’s right kids, those super-early Kraftwerk albums that the band have tried to erase from history by doggedly not anthologising them! In a sense you can see why, as this doesn’t fit the pure electronic ethos of later records, but Ralph & Florian is a hell of a record in its own right, with drums and flute joining the early electronics. Komische bliss! Reissued by Crown.

Kraftwerk
Kraftwerk 1 (Red Cone)

That’s right kids, those super-early Kraftwerk albums that the band have tried to erase from history by doggedly refusing to anthologise them! In a sense you can understand, as this doesn’t fit the pure electronic ethos of later records, but the ‘Red Cone’ record is an excellent album in its own right, involving a lot of flute and being very interesting indeed. Reissued by Crown.

Kraftwerk
Gondel Kino, Bremen, Germany June 25th, 1971

This goes back all the way to when Kraftwerk was still cool - I mean, they’re still cool. But do you feel like you missed out when they were doing their crazy live shows with actual acoustic instruments? This is your chance to right the wrongs! Here’s a 349 pressing limited edition vinyl release of their live show at Gondel Kino in Bremen, Germany on the 25th of June in 1970.

Kraftwerk
Live at Tribal Gathering, Luton, England on 24th May 1997

The machine lives. 1997 saw Kraftwerk playing live for the first time in four whole years, and they chose Luton as their stomping ground. 'Live at Tribal Gathering' sees the krautrock pioneers re-emerge from their robot lab -- they even decided to give their audience a shock and perform brand new material.

Kraftwerk
Autobahn

This is Kraftwerk’s fourth album, though it’s treated by the band as their year zero, and not entirely without justification. Though retaining “real” instruments like flute, piano, guitar and violin, this marks the start of Kraftwerk as a focused, conceptually defined, electronic entity. The side-long, Beach Boys-inspired title track and the mix of ambient soundscapes and melodic pieces on side two all share an airy, utopian feel. This is the digital remaster on vinyl.

Kraftwerk
The Man Machine

Yeah boy, this is the good stuff right here. You might know ‘The Man Machine’ as The One With ‘The Model’ on it, and it’s true that Kraftwerk’s seventh LP does contain some of their catchiest numbers (‘The Robots’ kicks off the record). However, this album also uses a sleeker pop sensibility to hide a plethora of futuristic ideas. A blueprint for so many genres to come, from synth-pop to techno to EBM.

Kraftwerk
Trans Europe Express

In a career full of peerless masterpieces, Kraftwerk’s ‘Trans Europe Express’ might be the most peerless of them all. This 1976 LP was the culmination of everything they’d done since ‘Autobahn’, a synthesiser music album at once in tune with so many others and also alone in its class. It is a love letter to Europe, to music and to the future. So, so many genres - techno, hip-hop, synth-pop - would sound very different without this ‘Trans Europe Express’.

Kraftwerk
Radio-Activity

Radio-Activity was Kraftwerk's fifth studio album originally released in 1975. It was the first of their albums to be purely electronic and was notable for it's more minimalist approach to their song craft. It is more drifty and avant-garde than earlier records and although it doesn't have the iconic status of their previous Autobahn, it was an important shift forward in their constantly developing electronic sound.

Kraftwerk
Computer World

Computer World was the eighth album by Kraftwerk. It was originally released in 1981. It included the single Computer Love which was released with The Model, from their previous album The Man-Machine, on the B-side. It was later released as a double A sided 12” and hit No.1. Yes, Krafwerk had a UK No.1 hit. Anyway, this album is widely regarded as a bit of belter.
