KRAFTWERK - TOUR DE FRANCE

Kraftwerk (German: [ˈkʁaftvɛɐ̯k], lit. "power station") is a German band formed in Düsseldorf in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. Widely considered as innovators and pioneers of electronic music, they were among the first successful acts to popularize the genre. The group began as part of West Germany's experimental krautrock scene in the early 1970s before fully embracing electronic instrumentation, including synthesizers, drum machines, and vocoders. 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 stylized image including matching suits. Following the release of Electric Café (1986), member Wolfgang Flür left the group in 1987; the band's other longtime percussionist, Karl Bartos, did the same in 1990. Founding member Schneider departed in 2008. The band's work has influenced a diverse range of artists and many genres of modern music, including synthpop, hip hop, post-punk, techno, ambient, and club music. In 2014, the Recording Academy honoured Kraftwerk with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. As of 2020, the remaining members of the band continue to tour.

VIOLENT FEMMES-Add it Up

Violent Femmes are an American folk punk band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States. The band consists of singer, guitarist and songwriter Gordon Gano, bassist Brian Ritchie, saxophonist and keyboardist Blaise Garza, and drummer John Sparrow. Violent Femmes have released ten studio albums and 15 singles during the course of their career. The band found immediate success with the release of their self-titled debut album in early 1983. Featuring many of their well-known songs, including "Blister in the Sun", "Kiss Off", "Add It Up" and "Gone Daddy Gone", Violent Femmes became the band's biggest-selling album and was eventually certified platinum by the RIAA. Violent Femmes went on to become one of the most successful alternative rock bands of the 1980s, selling more than 9 million albums by 2005. After the release of their third album The Blind Leading the Naked (1986), the band's future was uncertain and they split up in 1987, when Gano and Ritchie went solo. However, they regrouped a year later, releasing the album 3 (1989). Since then, Violent Femmes' maintained steady popularity, especially in the United States, where the songs "Nightmares" and "American Music" cracked the top five on the Modern Rock Tracks chart.

Τρύπες - Άσχημο όνειρο

Οι Τρύπες ήταν ελληνικό ροκ συγκρότημα από την Νεάπολη Θεσσαλονίκης. Ο ιδιαίτερος ήχος τους, προερχόμενος από τα βασικά χαρακτηριστικά του πυρήνα της μπάντας, δηλαδή από τα αναγνωρίσιμα φωνητικά και στίχους του τραγουδιστή Γιάννη Αγγελάκα, καθώς και από τις ιδιόμορφες συνθέσεις του μπασίστα Γιώργου Καρρά, ενέπνευσε πολλά σχήματα της εποχής και τους χάρισε μια θέση στο πάνθεον των πιο ποιοτικών και εμπορικά επιτυχημένων ελληνόφωνων ροκ σχημάτων.

Bicycle - Whispers

Οι Bicycle ήταν αναμφισβήτητα το συγκρότημα που αναζητούσε (και κατάφερε) να ηγηθεί ο (μεγάλος) κιθαρίστας Θόδωρης Παπαντίνας Οι Bicycle δημιουργηθήκαν στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του 80 στην Αθήνα και μέλη τους ήταν μερικοί από τους καλύτερους μουσικής της εποχής (και όχι μόνο): Θοδωρής Παπαντίνας -Κιθάρα, Φωνή, Στίλπων Νέστωρ - Κιθάρα, Βασίλης Παπαβασιλείου -Μπάσο και Ρούλης Πυρίλλης - Τύμπανα. Η μοναδική κυκλοφορία των Bicycle είναι το ομότιτλο άλμπουμ (σε ανεξάρτητη παραγωγή) που κυκλοφόρησε το 1981 από την Gramma (910) και στο οποίο όλες οι συνθέσεις είναι του Παπαντίνα. Στο άλμπουμ εκτός των Βιcycle συμμετείχαν οι Βαγγέλης Κουτσοτόλης (σαξόφωνο σε δυο κομμάτια) και ο Γιώργος Πεντζίκης (x- Fratelli). To Bicycle ηχογραφήθηκε εξολοκλήρου στο περίφημο studio Αγροτικόν υπό το οδηγίες του Νίκου Παπάζογλου. Ο ήχος του άλμπουμ είναι καθαρή και κλασικίζουσα κιθαριστική ροκ με τις ματιές στους Dire Straits και στους Stones να είναι κάτι παραπάνω από ορατές. Οι κριτικές της εποχής δεν ήταν και οι καlύτερες (το αντίθετο μάλιστα) και το άλμπουμ πέρασε τότε σχεδόν απαρατήρητο με αποτέλεσμα λίγο καιρό μετά την κυκλοφορία του οι Bicycle να διαλυθούν και να ακολουθήσουν διαφορετικές πορείες. Μερικά πράγματα για τον Παπαντίνα. Έχει περάσει από Μακεδονομάχους (με το Νίκο Παπάζογλου) την Εταιρεία Καλλιτεχνών (με τον Παύλο Σιδηρόπουλο) ενώ πρν μερικά χρόνια δημιούργησε τους Τ 4 Trouble. Ο Νέστωρ έχει περάσει και αυτός από την Εταιρεία Καλλιτεχνών ενώ μετά την διάλυση των bicycle δημιούργησε τους Rodondo Rocks. Ο Παπαβασιλείου υπήρξε μέλος των θρυλικών Olympians.
