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.
So well researched and filled with such enthusiasm for its subject that it absorbs from start to finish.
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.
Authoritative and highly readable, Future Days is the cultural and critical history the genre deserves, a joyful testament to the transformative power of art.
Absorbing and illuminating.
