Classic Album Sundays presents Kraftwerk ‘Trans-Europe Express’

Join us during July as we will feature one of our favourite bands of all time Kraftwerk and their seminal album ‘Trans-Europe Express’ which turns forty in 2017.

The album is structured around the concept of a train moving across a continent that was rapidly becoming borderless and digital. Forty years later this theme is as relevant as ever in a world dominated by social media and the internet and while the concept of a European community is being challenged.

Kraftwerk’s trademark electronic  beats are at their cleanest here, while the glacial tones and angelic backing vocals have never since resonated with such purity; and let’s not forget this is one of the root sources of hip-hop, thanks to Afrika Bambaataa’s appropriation of the “metal on metal” section of the title track for the seminal “Planet Rock”.

Astonishingly fresh and as important as ever we cannot wait to hear this album on our legendary audiophile soundsystems.
