Kraftwerk – The Artist
Kraftwerk (German: for “power station”) is a German band formed in Düsseldorf in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. Widely considered to be innovators and pioneers of electronic music, they were among the first successful acts to popularise the genre. The group began as part of West Germany’s experimental krautrock scene in the early 1970s before fully embracing electronic instrumentation, including synthesisers, drum machines, vocoders, and home-made experimental musical instruments. On commercially successful albums such as Autobahn (1974), Trans-Europe Express (1977), and The Man-Machine (1978), Kraftwerk developed a self-described “robot pop” style that combined electronic music with pop melodies, sparse arrangements, and repetitive rhythms, while adopting a stylised image including matching suits.
The Model – The Song
‘The Model’ (German Title – Das Model) is a song recorded by the German group Kraftwerk in 1978, written by musicians Ralf Hütter and Karl Bartos, with artist Emil Schult collaborating on the lyrics. It is featured on the album, The Man-Machine. First released as a 7″ single in Germany (B-side: “Neonlicht”), under its English translation the song was eventually included on the B-side of the “Computer Love” single released in 1981, which reached no. 36 in the UK charts. When radio DJs started playing the B-side, EMI re-issued the single in 198. It reached no. 1 in February 1982 and spent a total of 21 weeks in the top 75 of the UK Singles Chart.
