Parlophone are releasing Kraftwerk: 3-D The Catalogue next month, an audio/video document - available in a number of physical editions - that features all eight albums as performed live in the leading museums of the world in the last few years.

This set - which is available as a deluxe blu-ray box set, vinyl box, and CD set - features the eight classic Kraftwerk albums in chronological order: Autobahn (1974), Radio-Activity (1975), Trans Europe Express (1977), The Man-Machine (1978), Computer World (1981), Techno Pop (1986), The Mix (1991) and Tour De France (2003) - filmed and recorded between 2012 and 2016 on the band's 3-D World Tour. The locations include MoMA (New York), The Tate Modern Turbine Hall (London), Akasaka Blitz (Tokyo), Opera House (Sydney), Norske Opera (Oslo), Paradiso (Amsterdam), Fondation Louis Vuitton (Paris) and Neue National Galerie (Berlin).

The 12 x 12-inch Deluxe Blu-Ray/Book edition features four Blu-Ray discs and a 236-page hardback art-book containing computer generated images from the 3-D multi-media performances alongside a selection of unseen photos. Two blu-rays cover the album performances, the other two discs contain tour films and projections. Everything is 3D but compatible with standard 2D. These all have Dolby Atmos 5.1 audio too, if you're amp is compatible! The total running time is 436 minutes.

The nine-LP deluxe vinyl box set has the eight albums (The Mix being a double) as performed across the world and mixed by Kraftwerk, who say the sound quality is "peerless". An eight-CD box set mirrors the vinyl package, but is considerably cheaper.

If all this is too much, then abriged 77-minute versions are available on two-LP vinyl and on both discs of a blu-ray+DVD combo pack

3-D The Catalogue is issued on 26 May 2017

Home Counties

The town crier was unfortunately fully booked today so instead we are using the internet for this momentous announcement:

Our new album will be out on Jun 2nd 2017

It's called 'Home Counties'

It contains 19 'tracks' inspired by our bitter-sweet relationship with the eponymous shires that have always been part of our lives.

We recorded it in the summer and autumn of 2016 and it's co-produced by Shawn Lee of Wall Of Sound and Young Gun Silver Fox fame.

You can pre-order now on limited edition gatefold double vinyl, cd and of course cassette - with some exclusive extras - from our shop here.

Sarah Cracknell says: "We had so much fun writing for this album, drawing influence from our teenage years growing up in the home counties. Bob, Pete and I led almost parallel lives while I was in Windsor and they were in Surrey, developing our passion for music and London. Shawn Lee was a joy to work with, he's a wonderful multi-instrumentalist who seemed to have some kind of telepathy with us and translated our ideas perfectly. The record is quite varied in styles and brings together a little something from all our past albums whilst sounding completely new."

Bob Stanley says "Suburbia's anonymity is exactly why it's a source of inspiration. They said it couldn't happen here - and it didn't."

Whilst Pete added "We took a ride and ran with the dogs"

As a taster of what's to come we're streaming a special preview song from the album entitled 'Heather' here.

We set off on a UK tour in June but before that have three special warm up dates as follows....


Fri 26 Hebden Bridge Trades Club

Sun 04 Birmingham Town Hall

Tue 06 Bexhill De La Warr

Thu 08 Newcastle Sage

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Lots of love,

Bob, Pete and Sarah xxx
