Kraftwerk’s robotic, repetitive, all-electronic music influenced virtually every synthesizer band that followed in its wake.

In the mid-’70s the German group literally invented the man-machine sound and image. In 1970 Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider-Esleben, who had met studying classical music at the Dusseldorf Conservatory, founded Kling-Klang Studio.

Their first recorded appearance together is on 1970’s Tone Float, the debut by a psychedelic kraut-rock quintet called Organisation.

After leaving that group, Hütter and Schneider took the name Kraftwerk (“power plant”) and began experimenting with integrating mechanized sounds from everyday life into music.

They found immediate success with their first U.S. release, Autobahn, which went Top 5. The requisite hit was an edited version of the 22-minute minimalist title track about a monotonous journey along the famed German–Austrian superhighway.

We stock an awesome Kraftwerk Print from their ‘Man Machine’ Tour in 1981.

Available in different sizes and printed on high quality 210gsm paper, you’ll find no unsightly pin holes, stains or creases.

In fact, they look like they could have come straight off the press from the original print run.

Will look fantastic framed on your man cave, office, bar or living room wall.
