KRAFTWERK - 3-D THE CATALOGUE.
What is 3 D audio I hear you ask? No, well I asked...
"3D audio effects are a group of sound effects that manipulate the sound produced by stereo speakers, surround-sound speakers, speaker-arrays, or headphones. This frequently involves the virtual placement of sound sources anywhere in three-dimensional space, including behind, above or below the listener."
Ah love Wikipedia sometimes.
For many Krafwerk were the leading 'Electro' influence in the late 70's and early 80's.
To go further would introduce you to Klaus Nomi....
This release. If I've got it right, is Kraftwerk performing and recording all of their albums, in various famous art museums. Over a period of 5 Years. I should add 'contemporary' ie Tate Modern 2013.
I'm going to quote PARLOPHONE now, because I'm out of my depth.
Autobahn (1974), Radio-Activity (1975), Trans Europe Express (1977), The Man-Machine (1978), Computer World (1981), Techno Pop (1986), The Mix (1991) & Tour De France (2003) – filmed and recorded between 2012 and 2016 on the band’s 3-D World Tour. The locations include MoMA (New York), The Tate Modern Turbine Hall (London), Akasaka Blitz (Tokyo), Opera House (Sydney), Norske Opera (Oslo), Paradiso (Amsterdam), Fondation Louis Vuitton (Paris) and Neue National Galerie (Berlin). These 3-D multi-media performances have been met with universal acclaim from both music critics and art/culture curators, rightfully recognised as complete works of audio-visual art."
I'm waiting for words from "Danger" a propper fan of "The Dead" to add here.... please bare with me....
I'm not the bigest Weller fan. I loved the early Jam stuff.... "Down in The Tubestation at Midnight" great song...and I loved The Style Council. But this....

LOVELY CREATURES - intro by NICK CAVE
"There are some people out there who just don’t know where to start with The Bad Seeds. Others know the catalogue better than I do! This release is designed to be a way into three decades of music making. That’s a lot of songs. The songs we have chosen are the ones that have stuck around, for whatever reason. Some songs are those that demand to be played live. Others are lesser songs that are personal favourites of ours. Others are just too big and have too much history to leave out. And there are those that didn’t make it, poor things. They are the ones you must discover by yourselves.”
I'd like to have breakfast with Debbie Harry. I would tell her over croissant & cappuccino that her and her band's songs will live on forever.
Then i'd tell her how much I admired her for looking after Chris Stein for all those years. Loyalty is one of my favourite things.
Along with "11.59"
