Future Days Kautrock and the Birth of a Revolutionary New Music


Future Days Kautrock and the Birth of a Revolutionary New Music by David Stubbs has arrived in store! Stubbs writes about Kautrock, the legendary music genre that had major influence on many western groups and artists, like David Bowie, Talking Heads and LCD Soundsystem. Kautrock sprung from a shaken generation, in post-war Germany. It has been revisited for inspiration ever since!
Stubbs starts by throwing us back to the late 70’s, in a German makeshift concert hall, where “Even the youngest person present (…), would be of pensionable age now, though strangely they’d probably not look at all out of place if they mingled with today’s generation of postmodern hipsters.” Lol! As he situates legendary bands such as Can, Faust!, Neu and Kraftwerk in their historical context, we learn that Kautrock isn’t only a mode of playing music, but most importantly, it’s also a set of values about how and why to make music. Get ready music philosophers!
