Product Description

The ultimate account of Dusseldorf’s most influential bands, including Kraftwerk, NEU!, DAF, and Die Krupps

Just like Memphis is the heartland of rock and roll, Dusseldorf is regarded as the Mecca for electronic music. The capital of North Rhine-Westphalia became the center of an analog electronic movement from the early 1970s to the mid-1980s. Electri_City uncovers the myths and realities of the bands emerging from the artistic backdrop of a wealthy German post WWII modernistic city and explores the emergence of the electronic scene in Dusseldorf, which fostered a creative explosion that influenced musicians and artists worldwide.

Rudi Esch has played an active part in the Düsseldorf music scene for over twenty years, performing with several punk and new wave bands. Since 1988 Esch has played bass guitar for electronic rock band Die Krupps, and he works as an instrumentalist, composer, lyricist and producer.
