Alpendub Plays Entire Trans-Europe Express Album from Kraftwerk

Alpendub has been putting together a special project – a complete reworking of Kraftwerk’s classic 1977 album Trans-Europe Express. We are working on the English-language version of the album, but plans are also in place for a German-language variant, just like Kraftwerk originally did. If you are unaware of this brilliant concept album, here’s a good review of Trans-Europe Express at Allmusic. Here’s some more background on Trans-Europe Express from wikipedia.

Musicians include:

  • Kgomotso Tsatsi
  • Max Ottfried Seidlymayr
  • Sepp Paschinger
  • Daniel Lauer
  • Robert Cummings
  • Ian Beaty
  • Patrick Kukwa, Thomas Holzhausen, Claudius Staudte
  • Tyson Naylor

We’ve taken care to redo the tracks with the same keys, tempo and arrangements. The difference is in the instrumentation and groove. Kraftwerkian synths are redone with alpine dubness.

Here’s the track listing:

  1. Europe Endless
  2. Hall Of Mirrors
  3. Showroom Dummies
  4. Trans-Europe Express
  5. Metal On Metal
  6. Franz Schubert
  7. Endless Endless

Stay tuned for more details!
