Kraftwerk - 6music Specials!
BBC 6music have just run an excellent series of documentaries and specials over the weekend celebrating the overlords of Elektro, Kraftwerk, 30 years on from their 1982 UK number 1 single, the Model. The undoubted highlight of the series was Wall Of Sound's Mark Jones and his excellent occasional 6mix show Back To The Phuture which featured a guest appearance by Mute Records boss Daniel Miller.
Kraftwerk expert and fan Daniel takes us through the story and impact of possibly the most influential group in pop music history. Also worth a mention is Huey Morgan's interview with Kraftwerk fan (and sampler via Planet Rock!) the legendary Afrika Bambaataa.
Catch the programme while you can here!
