In the ninth episode of The Last Line, James chats to German electronic music pioneers Harald Grosskopf & Eberhard Kranemann of newly formed outfit Krautwerk. During their conversation they discuss the lack of experimentation in modern music, the need for imperfections in art and how growing up in post-war Germany influenced their music.
Harald and Eberhard are both influential names in the world of German electronic music. Harald played drums on early work by Klaus Shulze before recording thirteen albums with the band Ashra. His solo albums Synthesist and Oceanheart have become cult hits in the electronic music scene. Eberhard is one of the original founding members of legendary band Kraftwerk and went onto release a number of albums under the pseudonym Fritz Muller while also playing in bands Neu! and Pissoff.
