Celebrating the publication of Future Days: Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany, of which Simon Reynolds says ‘Future Days does not capture Krautrock so much as unleash it. At long last, the definitive book on the ultimate music’, we present author David Stubbs in conversation with Luke Turner (The Quietus).
Earlier in the evening, courtesy of our friends at Spoon Records, we will be screening some live footage of the ultimate Krautrock band, CAN. The opportunity to see this on the big screen through a club soundsystem is not to be missed.
To close out the night we welcome Krautrock Karaoke, a rotating cast of unannounced musicians covering the Krautrock classics. Musicians who have performed previously as part of this ensemble include Colin Newman (Wire), Tom Furse (The Horrors), Satomi Matsuzaki (Deerhoof) and Panda (TOY).
Doors 7pm | Tickets £6 in advance / £8 on the door
