ELECTRONIC SOUND ISSUE 40 Magazine + CD BUNDLE
ISSUE 40 MAGAZINE & CD BUNDLE
The new issue of Electronic Sound finds us in a celebratory mood as we mark the 40th anniversary of Kraftwerks masterpiece, The Man-Machine.
Released in May 1978, The Man-Machine sounded the starting pistol for electronic music revolution in pop and in this months cover feature we look at how Kraftwerk taught their machines to sing.
Over 14 pages we offer a glimpse into the making of a record that tackles how humans and technology co-exist, examine the predictions contained on The Man-Machine to see how prescient Ralf and co were with their ideas of the future four decades ago and reveal the inspiration behind that iconic cover image…
Elsewhere, we find the excellent Chris Carter in fine fettle as we discuss his new album, Chris Carters Chemistry Lessons Volume One, which is, incredibly, his first solo long-playing in 17 years. Worth the wait? You bet it is.
In other news, Tim Gane joins us to talk us through his increasingly brilliant Cavern Of Anti-Matter project, we meet Manchesters GoGo Penguin who explain how to make electronic music without the aid of electronics, theres also Snapped Ankles, Alva Noto, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Lonelady, Paul Hardcastle… we really are spoiling you.
All of this and our Front section packed with this months favourite tech, toys, books, gadgets and the like and lets not forget our bumper Back section, stuffed to bursting with the latest album reviews.
