Kraftwerk is the debut studio album by German electronic band Kraftwerk. It was released in Germany in 1970, and produced by Konrad "Conny" Plank. Chief Kraftwerk members Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider used two drummers during the recording of the album; Andreas Hohmann and Klaus Dinger. Their playing provides the music with a rock edge

Formerly known as Organisation, Kraftwerk debuted live as the trio of Ralf Hütter, Florian Schneider-Esleben and Charly Weiss at the Tivoli Popfestival, Aachen on 11 July 1970. Klaus Dinger took over as drummer after that. Gigs between 26 December 1970 and 30 July 1971 omitted Hutter, with various line-ups including Michael Rother and others.

Kraftwerk by Kraftwerk. Their playing provides the music with a rock edge. This proves to be quite distinct from Hütter and Schneider's previous band Organisation, or the following pair of Kraftwerk albums, Kraftwerk 2 and Ralf and Florian which were both recorded entirely as a duo by Hütter and Schneider.

Former Kraftwerk percussionist Karl Bartos features in the new issue of Uncut (February 2013, Take 189), out now, discussing the upcoming Kraftwerk retrospective shows in London, and his own new solo album, Off The Record. As a companion piece, here’s Ralf Hütter taking us through the high points of Kraftwerk’s discography in a fascinating ‘album by album’ from Uncut’s October 2009 issue (Take 149). He might have spent most of the past two decades cocooned in the Kubrickian perfectionism of his secret Kling Klang studio in Düsseldorf, but Kraftwerk’s Ralf Hütter is on unusually

Kraftwerk's sound is minimalistic and strictly electronic; it combines driving, repetitive rhythms with catchy melodies and vocals usually sung through a vocoder. Kraftwerk ("power plant" in English) is an electronic band founded in 1970 in Düsseldorf, Germany. They pioneered electronic music in the 70s and are considered one of the most important and influential bands of their genre, often described as "the godfathers of electronic mus. ead.

10‘Kraftwerk’ (1970) Kraftwerk’s debut album barely exists. It’s been quietly ushered out of the official records by de facto leader Hütter and certainly won’t be making an appearance at the Turbine Hall anytime soon. It’s not tearing up any trees in the 31st century electronica stakes, but it’s still a fascinating record. More of a full band at this point, Kraftwerk are skirting around the edges of free jazz on ‘Ruckzuck’ – with Schneider mucking about on the flute, of all things, and not for the last time – and getting motorik on the epic ‘Stratovarius’

Kraftwerk is one of the most important electronic bands and one of the best artists of all time in that regard. If you want to know, "What is the Best Kraftwerk album of all time?" or "What are the top Kraftwerk albums?" then this list will answer your questions. The list you're viewing is made up of many different albums, including Autobahn and Radio-Aktivität.
