The Vital Weekly Podast 872 (Tracklist)

Karl Bartos - Interview - Radioeins 05.03.2012
radioeins.de: "Bis 1990 war Karl Bartos Mitglied bei der Band Kraftwerk. Danach begann der heute 60jährige eine Karriere u.a. als Solokünstler. „Off the record“ wird sein neues Album heißen, das am 15.März erscheint. Wie der Albumtitel vermuten lässt, waren die Songs darauf eigentlich nicht für die Öffentlichkeit bestimmt. Nun ja, manchmal kommt es anders als gedacht. Auf „Off the record“ hat Karl Bartos aus Rhythmen, Hooks, Sounds und Melodien, die er in der erfolgreichsten Zeit der Elektro-Band Kraftwerk komponiert hat, zwölf neue zeitlose Songs gemacht."

Did Cycling Kill Kraftwerk?
thebikeshow.net: "On the eve of Kraftwerk’s eight night residency at the Tate Modern, Jack is joined by David Buckley, music writer and author of a new biography of the German electronic pop pioneers. Among the revelations in his book is evidence that a serious obsession with cycling contributed to the slowing of the band’s musical output in the 1980s and, ultimately, the break-up of the group’s classic line-up."

Scott Walker On World Cafe
Scott Walker possesses one of the greatest and most distinctive voices of the last quarter-century. To the pop world, he's best known for his work with The Walker Brothers in the 1960s. For a time, Walker's stardom rivaled that of The Beatles — and even then, he pushed the envelope and shaped a sound that interested him. His music is personal, complex and inventive, always presenting sounds and forms that haven't been heard before. Lyrically, Walker can be dark yet caustically funny, obscure but always completely thought out." Stream the interview at npr.org

Radio ABC: "Krautrock was a pulse, a spontaneous eruption from the depths of the post-war German psyche, a seminal moment in the birth of electronic music. Bands like Can, Neu, Harmonia, Amon Düül, Faust and of course Kraftwerk coalesced around a common desire to take rock music beyond the blues into a realm of pure improvisation and experimentation. In the process they became sonic prophets, messengers from the future. Tom Morton and Timothy Nicastri take to the autobahn." Read on
