Elektric Music – “TV” (Video – 1993)

September 3, 2008 at 11:24 pm (Kraftwerk, Krautrock, Music)

This band was formed by Karl Bartos after he left Kraftwerk. “TV” was their debut single and was released on their debut album Esperanto. It has a Kraftwerk feel to it, though the singer has a slight Neil Tennant thing going on.

Organisation – “Silver Forest” (1970)

September 3, 2008 at 11:13 pm (Kraftwerk, Krautrock, Music)

This is the band that became Kraftwerk and features Ralf Hutter and Florian Schneider. As you can hear, they sounded nothing like later Kraftwerk, but they do sound alot like the experimental early phase of Kraftwerk. This is from their sole album Tone Float, which was recorded in 1969 and released in early 1970.

Kraftwerk – “Tour de France” (1983)

August 29, 2008 at 12:33 am (Electronica, Kraftwerk, Krautrock)

The original 1983 single of this Kraftwerk tribute to the French race. Kraftwerk are for all intents & purposes, the forefathers of techno.

I’m not sure of this is the official video of the song, or if someone put these images to music.  

NOTE: Please double click this video to get it to play.

Kraftwerk – “Tanzmusik” (Live – 1973)

July 31, 2008 at 2:56 am (Kraftwerk, Krautrock, Music)

More Kraftwerk!! Taken again from German TV – this time from 1973. One year before they hit it big on the international front with Autobahn. This was still in their early experimental phase – right before they became the band we all know & love.
