Kraftwerk DVD on the Way

I knew that this would be coming and I actually thought it would be a little sooner, but EVERYONE that reads this blog should check out this DVD come December 5.

When I saw Kraftwerk earlier this year, I can admit that I wasn’t sure what to expect. In actuality, I saw one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. Hands down. Better than a couple of the Phish shows I had seen during their tenure, too. Now you’ll get a chance to see what I saw, feel what I felt, oh man, I get happy just thinking about it. I’m very pleased to report that they are taking their recent tour to DVD, and I’m sure it’ll be breathtaking.

From Billboard.com

Kraftwerk’s recent run of live shows will be chronicled on the DVD “Minimum-Maximum,” which shares its name with a double-disc live album released earlier this year via Astralwerks. Due Dec. 6, the DVD replicates that project’s set list and tacks on a live performance of “Aero Dynamik” at the 2003 MTV European Music Awards in Edinburgh.

On the same day, Astralwerks will unveil the “Notebook” boxed set in the shape of a laptop computer. It will house both the “Minimum-Maximum” CD and DVD as well an 88-page hardback book with rare photos and artwork.

  1. Ok I bought this DVD yesterday (december 1st) at a local shop in town and I must say that I am very dissapointed. I agree that their live show is fantastic. I enjoyed it enormously, but…The DVD is nothing more than a registration of their concert! No extra’s, no documentary, no special material at all. For a band that can be seen as the founders of Techno a reall disapointment. I can’t get rid of the impression that they don’t want to put a lot of efford in a DVD. They just want to make some easy money. Lousywerk Kraftwerk!

  4. Oh no! That’s unfortunate. That really is, I was hoping for some extras at least…

    I imagine if the audio quality is all that the DVD is good for (including just watching the guys stand in front of their laptops), then that is a bummer, indeed.

    I might as well just crank up the CD copy on my home theater system.
