Franck Vigroux & Matthew Bourne - Radioland: Radio-Activity Revisited

CD: £11.99

Label: Leaf

Release date: 15.01.2016

Further Information

CD packaged in hardback 20-page book. 'Radioland: Radio-Activity Revisited' is a stunning reimagining of Kraftwerk’s seminal album, created to celebrate its 40th anniversary. 'Radioland' was initially devised as an audio-visual live experience by the Anglo-French trio of Matthew Bourne (synthesisers, voice), Franck Vigroux (electronics) and visual artist Antoine Schmitt. Using a variety of vintage analogue synthesisers and electronics, they have recreated the futuristic, industrial world of ominous darkness and dazzling light imagined by Kraftwerk in 1975 and reconstructed in this bold new manifestation for 2015. The album is mastered by Denis Blackham, who mastered Kraftwerk’s classic 1974 album Autobahn. Includes liner notes by David Stubbs, author of Future Days: Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany, and photographs and images from the project.
