Kraftwerk: the early music
presented by James Poke
In the context Icebreaker's forthcoming Kraftwerk Uncovered show, this month's Radio Icebreaker explores the early work of Kraftwerk, from their roots in the German experimental scene of the late '60's and early '70's, music which is rarely heard and has never been released on CD, demonstrating what an exciting and ground-braking band they were in the years before they achieved commercial success with Autobahn.  

The show also features tasters of the live show, with demo versions of Heimcomputer and Morgenspaziergang.


Latest Album: Apollo

Engaged in an exploration between recorded electronic and live acoustic sound, Icebreaker and renowned pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole present their "moving and sublime" performance of Apollo in a definitive and invigorating recording.
