Following the blood, static and thunder of the Radioland tour back in March, Matthew Bourne and Franck Vigroux have now committed their vital reinterpretation of Kraftwerk’s seminal Radio-Activity album to tape. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the original, they have taken the futuristic, industrial world of ominous darkness and dazzling light imagined by Kraftwerk in 1975, and reconstructed it in this bold new manifestation for 2015.
The beautifully packaged deluxe gatefold vinyl and 24 page hardback book CD edition feature striking imagery from visual artist Antoine Schmitt’s projections which were an integral part of the live show, and liner notes by David Stubbs, author of Future Days: Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany.
Released December 4th, Radioland: Radio-Activity Revisited is the perfect Christmas present for the discerning Kraftwerk fan in your life. Pre-order here or here without delay and keep your eyes peeled for more Radioland shows next year.
