9780571283323: Future Days: Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany

A sweeping history of the men and women who transformed postwar Germany—and created a musical genre that revolutionized rock and roll and gave birth to hip-hop.
 
West Germany after World War II was a country in shock: estranged from its recent history, and adrift from the rest of Europe. But this orphaned landscape proved fertile ground for a generation of musicians who, from the 1960s onwards, would develop the strange and beautiful sounds that became known as Krautrock.
 
Eschewing the easy pleasures of rock and roll and the more substantive seductions of blues and jazz, they took their inspiration from elsewhere: the mysticism of the East; the fractured classicism of Stockhausen; the grinding repetition of industry; the dense forests of the Rhineland; the endless winding of Autobahns.
 
Faust, Neu!, Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Amon Düül II, Can, Kraftwerk—the influence of these groups’ music on Western popular music is incalculable. They were key to the development of movements ranging from post-punk to electronica and hip-hop and have directly inspired artists as diverse as David Bowie, Talking Heads, and LCD Soundsystem.
 
Future Days is the brilliantly reported, deeply researched story of the groups that created Krautrock, and a social and cultural history of the Germany that challenged, inspired, and repelled them.

About the Author:

DAVID STUBBS is an author and music journalist. Alongside Simon Reynolds, he was one of the co-founders of the magazine Monitor before going on to join the staff at Melody Maker. He later worked for NME, Uncut and Vox, as well as The Wire. His work has appeared in The Times of London, The Sunday Times, Spin, The Guardian, The Quietus, and GQ. He has written a number of books, including Fear of Music: Why People Get Rothko but Don’t Get Stockhausen, a comparative study of twentieth-century avant-garde music and art. He currently lives in London.

Review:

“[A] well-written and enjoyable look at that very fascinating pop music that emerged from Germany from the mid-‘60s onward... An excellent contextualization of German Rock."
Yahoo! Music

“A massive answered prayer... Well-researched, well-written, intensely detailed, and oftentimes gripping."
Kirkus Reviews

“David Stubbs deftly situates legends like Can, Faust, Neu! and Kraftwerk in their historical context—the politics and culture of post-WWII Germany. But more crucially, the rollicking energy of his prose and reeling majesty of his imagery convey everything about this music that transcends time and place.”
—Simon Reynolds, author of Retromania and Rip It Up and Start Again

Descripción FABER FABER, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the definitive guide to Kosmische music, from one of Britain s most acclaimed writers. West Germany after the Second World War was a country in shock: estranged from its recent history, and adrift from the rest of Europe. But this orphaned landscape proved fertile ground for a generation of musicians who, from the 1960s onwards, would develop the experimental and various sounds that became known as Krautrock. Eschewing the Anglo-American jazz/blues tradition, they took their inspiration from elsewhere: the mysticism of the East; the fractured classicism of Stockhausen; the pneumatic repetition of industry, and the dense forests of the Rhineland; the endless winding of Autobahns. Faust, Neu!, Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Amon Duul II, Can, Kraftwerk - the influence of these groups ruminative, expansive compositions upon Western popular music is incalculable. They were key to the development of movements ranging from postpunk to electronica and ambient, and have directly inspired artists as diverse as David Bowie, Talking Heads and Primal Scream. Future Days is an in-depth study of this meditative, sometimes abstract, often very beautiful music and the groups that made it, throwing light too on the social and political context that informed them. It s an indispensable book for those wanting to understand how much of today s music came about, and to discover a wealth of highly influential and pioneering artists.
