About the Book

West Germany after the Second World War was a country in shock: estranged from its recent history, and adrift from the rest of Europe. This proved to be fertile ground for a generation of musicians who, from the 1960s onwards, would develop the experimental sounds that became known as Krautrock.

Faust, Neu!, Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Amon Düül II, Can, Kraftwerk – the influence of these groups upon popular music is incalculable. Future Days is an in-depth study of the music and the groups who made it.

“Future Days does not capture Krautrock so much as unleash it. At long last, the definitive book on the ultimate music.”
- Simon Reynolds
“So well researched and filled with such enthusiasm for its subject that it absorbs from start to finish.”
- Observer
