DJ Sam Day presents the best German KRAUTROCK.
‘Krautrock’ a term first used by the British music press, was never a coherent movement, rather a loose definition to describe the music coming out of West Germany in the late 1960s and 70s.
Can, Neu!, Faust, and Kraftwerk, to name a few of the key bands involved, all laid the foundations for generations of musicians after them. Krautrock’s influence was substantial and continues through to contemporary music.
It has been credited with being a huge influence on a diverse range of artists from David Bowie, Radiohead, Joy Division, Mark E Smith (The Fall) and John Lydon (Sex Pistols) to Sonic Youth and Stereolab.
