Saturday Matinee – Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Trio, Nena & the Allotria Jazz Band

by

Kraftwerk on The Midnight Special (1975).

I didn’t realize Tangerine Dream was German – but I should have. We’d listen to this while pulling all-nighters at Biteme U.

Trio [via]. I remember the song, never saw the vid.

Nina Hagen in 1983. I always liked that song, but didn’t realize she was born in East Berlin. Unusual circumstances the government allowed her to leave when she was 21.

[UPDATE: Dang. I blew it. Thanks daver.

Nina Hagen did not record that song, the German band Nena did, the lead singer was Nena Kerner.


Live from München, the Allotria Jazz Band plays Jelly Roll Morton.

That’s about all the German stuff I can take for now. Have a great weekend, don’t let the scolds get to you. See you back here tomorrow and stuff.
