FLORIAN SCHNEIDER R.I.P. 1947 - 2020

Florian Schneider, who as one of the founding members of German group Kraftwerk changed the sound of pop music forever, has died on April 30, 2020 of cancer. He was 73. The news was confirmed to the Guardian by one of his musical collaborators, who said Schneider had died a week ago and had a private burial. It was also confirmed via Sony Berlin. Operating in the experimental, open-minded rock scene dubbed “krautrock” in the British press, he formed the group Organisation with Ralf Hutter, the pair later forming Kraftwerk in 1970. After three albums with Hütter in the mid-70s, Kraftwerk released Autobahn and expanded to a quartet. The album was composed primarily on synthesisers, and its highly original sound and witty lyrics made it a hit, reaching the Top 5 in the UK and US. The group would be seen as one of the forefathers of the synthpop that would dominate the 1980s and beyond. - theguardian.com

KRAFTWERK
Paris 1976 [no label, 2CD]

Live at l’Olympia , Paris, France; February 28, 1976. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to Fokker1918 for sharing the show at Dime.

Notes:

Yet another AMAZING find that’s now just come to light. This is a master tape from the France Inter archive of the FULL l’Olympia show! We only had 21 mins from the ‘Somewhere in Europe’ LP and then 38 mins from a rebroadcast in 2015. This is the complete show from a radio programme called “We’re Going Out Tonight” with no radio DJ talking over the music or tuning. Very likely recorded before being broadcast on the radio. HUGE thanks to Babass_ and JT for helping to curate this incredible concert. Of special note is Florian’s use of the Votrax VS-6 “Talking Typewriter” as Karl put it in his memoir for “Die Sonne, Der Mond, Die Sterne.” No adjusting has been made but if anyone wants to improve on what’s here, feel free!

  3. Derrick & DD, if we had won the war this is the music that the whole world would sing! There would be no Zep, Cactus, ABBA or Kiss. Voodshtock would not have happened. We’d all have tiny little mustaches.

  12. derriere, next time you wanna get screwed, put on a bullwinkle suit and let them buzz screw you in the rear

  13. David Duke (the real one, not the twit who posts under that name here) has been permanently barred from Twitter. Hate speech is not protected under the first amendment.

    By the way, the first amendment states that “CONGRESS shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech…

    Companies are free to set their own policies and take action against those who violate those terms.

  14. HHH,”the retards continue to play in their parents basements” is a brilliant metaphor for the state of the white supremacists today. Having to go underground to continue their good work.

    By Derrick on Aug 1, 2020

  15. Who’d a thunk I could use a phrase like ‘Brilliant metaphor’ let alone type it. Don’t you wish there was an app for spellcheck that worked inside your own brain?

    By Derrick on Aug 1, 2020

  16. hey asshole gay mark just as an fyi. twitter is allowing irans ayotollah to post racist jewish rants and the orange bozo has been restricted. put that up your brown

    By David Duke on Aug 1, 2020

  17. Twitter executives last month rebuffed a request from the Israeli government to remove tweets from Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei calling for the genocide of the Israeli people — claiming in a stunning letter obtained by The Post that the Jew-hate qualified as “comments on current affairs.”

    By David Duke on Aug 1, 2020

  18. The decision comes after the social media giant recently began policing President Trump’s tweets, alleging they “glorify violence” and spread misinformation about mail-in voting.

    By David Duke on Aug 1, 2020

  19. I’d still let Trump take a shit in my mouth, gladly.

    By David Duke on Aug 1, 2020

  20. “Retards continue to insist only white people can have ice cream.” Hey DD have you seen this?

    By Derrick on Aug 1, 2020

  21. “Pickaninnies upset over ice cream ruling” Can you believe this shit?

    By Derrick on Aug 1, 2020

  22. Derrick, you’re a God Damned idiot.

    By David Duke on Aug 1, 2020

  23. I will turn all of these morons in.

    By HHH on Aug 1, 2020

  24. I just read that a white man invented chop sticks. What was so hard about that?

    By Derrick on Aug 1, 2020

  25. Non freedom of speech only applies to whites. Black apes are free to say anything they choose . That’s where we are in 2020.

    By HHH on Aug 1, 2020

  26. As far as I’m concerned people should be free to say anything they choose , provided it stops with words and dosent get violent. If black apes can scream I hate whitey , then whites should be able to scream they hate certain races too , without losing their jobs . Provided of course it dosent happen in the workplace.

    By HHH on Aug 1, 2020

  27. The woman in Central Park refusing to leash her dog is an example of the world we live in today . Everyone has a smart phone , everything you do is recorded. The black ape should have called the police himself to complain about the woman not having the dog on a leash , instead of confronting her in the park . She had every right to be angry about a black ape confronting her .

    By HHH on Aug 1, 2020

  28. I mean it’s now to the point where a person can’t even call the cops to complain about a black ape harassing them without it going on social media and costing you your job ? I doubt if the woman would have lost her job if she had been black and the guy complaining about the dog had been white . The apes are taking over the country.

    By HHH on Aug 1, 2020

  29. A similar thing happened at a cvs pharmacy last year when a white woman storms out the door screaming multiple times I hate niggers. What happened? You guessed it . She loses her job of course. Unless someone happens in the workplace, a persons job should be off limits. There is no privacy anymore anywhere.

    By HHH on Aug 1, 2020

  30. David , derrick , Antichrist, if you’re still here . What do you think of the nba black ape players kneeling and wearing black lives matter t shirts before those ridiculous bubble games ? Not only that , BLM was painted on the sides of the basketball courts . I was never as big a sports fan as you guys , but seeing that was a big turn off .

    By HHH on Aug 1, 2020

  31. No way would they allow whites to wear white lives matter Or have that painted on the court . Oh that’s right , it doesn’t matter because there are no white players in basketball anymore , football either , only black apes and Oreos .

    By HHH on Aug 1, 2020

  32. Way more whites get killed by cops than black apes , but you never hear about that . If you watch the video of George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks , in both those incidents, the apes were giving the cops a hard time , resisting arrest etc . In brooks case he attempted to use a taser on a cop and paid the price . Officers Rolfe and Chauvin are hero’s and should have all charges dropped and given their jobs back with raises and promotions.

    By HHH on Aug 1, 2020

  33. im done watchin sports hhh. enough is enough

    By David Duke on Aug 1, 2020

  34. whats with the ice cream and pickaninni derrick

    By David Duke on Aug 1, 2020

  35. By custom rather than by law, black folks were best off if they weren’t caught eating vanilla ice cream in public in the Jim Crow South, except – the narrative always stipulates – on the Fourth of July. I

    By David Duke on Aug 1, 2020

  36. I have nothing to say on the matter. Ooops, got that wrong!

    By HHH on Aug 1, 2020

  37. Who ya talkin to triple h. No one is reading this - except DD - of course.

    By Derrick on Aug 1, 2020
