2. Kraftwerk: Trans Europe Express
The clarity of this pioneering electronic pop record, gave me the knowledge that space is just as important as areas filled with sound. The hypnotic repetition of the electronic beats emulating a train relentlessly thundering along european tracks though tunnels valleys and past mountains with dark histories held me in its mesmerising spell. These were very different times the Cold War was at it’s hight and the very real threat of nuclear war was never far away. West Germany and Kraftwerk seemed to be on the front line.
