8/10 … Toccata Electronica is possibly the most stunning bootleg of Kraftwerk ever ‘released’. Comprising of rare and different remixes of many well known Kraftwerk songs. This bootleg first surfaced in 1995 as a CD with professional looking packaging and high quality audio. Different pressings including differing artwork and CD labels are in circulation however the front cover is usually the one shown here above…
When American rock music spread across Europe in the late 1950s, it was integrated with the countries’ own cultural heritage. In the UK, the road to rock’n’roll went via skiffle, fast folk music on the banjo and washboard. In 1956, John Lennon formed a slate group, the Quarrymen, of which Paul McCartney and George Harrison […]
8/10 …The holy trio (303) of Hardfloor records released during the same period, 1993-1994, TB Resuscitation, Respect and Funalogue are even now, almost 30 years later is still amazing. Especially the two full-length albums. The mini-album Funalogue as a stand alone release as it was ment to be at first, with only the 5 tracks, Confuss, Roarrh, Rosinenbrot, Funalogue and Alternative is still a solid good album, and I would rate it as a 6/10. But when they decided to include the over 10 minute long Into The Nature (Plastikman Mix) Remix and Into The Nature (Hardfloor Remix) the release reached a whole new level. They are mind-tripping, mind-blowing and both of them should always be played in any Acid DJ set. The other tracks are as I said good, apart from Roarrh, that’s nothing short of embarissing and I chose to ignore.
9/10 … The British press calls him The Göttfater (Godfather) of Techno. With the album E2–E4, Göttsching created music that influenced the development of electronic music (almost) as much as Kraftwerk.
When Manuel Göttsching released the album E2–E4 in 1984, but he received criticism at home in Germany for not understanding the path taken by electronic music. Several years later, reviewers apologized. It was they themselves who did not understand what a groundbreaking album Göttsching had created…
9/10 … The show in itself is really good, and they travel to all kinds of locations to investigate. Since it’s American produced we get the usual half whispering narrator and some shaky hand held camera to make it more exciting for the general public. But all in all really good.
This escape theory is certainly interesting and since I’m an open minded person, I don’t discard claims like this when there are enough evidence to back them up. But the official story might as well be correct one, we will probably never know with a 100% certainty.
