Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

The story of the phenomenon that is Kraftwerk and how they revolutionised our cultural landscape. 

'We are not artists nor musicians. We are workers.'

Ignoring nearly all rock traditions, experimenting in near-total secrecy in their Düsseldorf studio, Kraftwerk fused sound and technology, graphic design and performance, modernist Bauhaus aesthetics and Rhineland industrialisation - even human and machine - to change the course of modern music. This is the story of Kraftwerk as a cultural phenomenon, who turned electronic music into avant-garde concept art and created the soundtrack to our digital age.

A great read!

This was a really great read and I love how it gives insight into the history of Kraftwerk and where they are today. It was really interesting! I recommend this book to avid Kraftwerk fans and those who just want to learn about, Who want to get into or who are new to the band.

Minimum equals maximum.

I was lucky enough to see Kraftwerk a few years ago at Birmingham symphony hall and I've been a fan since the 80s. This book gives a great insight and understanding of how the band see there music.
