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

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 Düül 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.

Book Description:

A weighty and wide-ranging genre history full of mystic moments and insightful analysis. ( Mojo 4*)

Krautrock's broad church is detailed and enthused about with skill by Stubbs, a man immersed in the music he adores. It's informative and full of fantastic interviews - a must for any fans of the man machine. ( Q 4*)

This clear-headed and sympathetic account of great things that happened in a temporary nation is as serious and entertaining as its subject. ( The Independent)

His book is so well researched and filled with such enthusiasm for its subject that it absorbs from start to finish. ( The Observer)

Their revolution - sweeping, with international consequences on the shape of modern popular music - was cultural, a momentous if fleeting creative blossoming, whose many and disparate achievements are fittingly celebrated in this admirable book. ( Uncut 8/10)

Absorbing and illuminating. ( The Wire)

A thorough critical and cultural history of the genre. ( The List 4*)

Musically literate, historically astute and socially smart appreciation. ( The Times)

The brief, wide-ranging and influential musical movement is charted in forensic detail in David Stubb's engrossing Future Days. ( The Telegraph)

Book Description:

Future Days: Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany, by David Stubbs, is the indispensable and definitive new guide to Krautrock.
