Kraftwerk - Trans Europe Express LP
Release Date: October 30th, 2020
Limited edition clear vinyl.
Arguably, Kraftwerk's best recording, Trans-Europe Express from 1977 marries the Kosmische minimalism of the Ralf and Florian record with the technological sublime sound of Autobahn while at the same time foreshadowing the robotic dance pop of The Man-Machine and Computer World. We also see for the first time, the image of the band as a uniform commodity dealing with post-modern themes of surface, reflection, repetition and reproduction that would thoroughly dominate their later output.
