Die Krupps : Stahlwerksinfonie - 2xCD  Ref: 19963 It was a bold move - to step so far away from the music of the past and present, in an attempt to create the music of the future. Juergen Engler and Bernward Malaka decided to go separate ways and break with their own past, and founded DIE KRUPPS.

Just before DIE KRUPPS decided to do a proper recording - which was to take place at the famous CAN Innerspace Studio - Ralf Dörper joined the new unit.

The recorded material was taken to the legendary studio of Conny Plank, where the mix - as well as the dub version - was conducted by Rene Tinner on 28 March 1981, with Holger Czukay (of CAN fame) in attendance.

Both versions of Stahlwerksinfonie (correct spelling) were originally released on Hamburg's ZickZack Records in 1981 as a 45rpm Mini-LP.

The concert featured on CD 2 took place at Haus Blumenthal in Krefeld 1981 and was recorded by a Japanese gentleman, Agi Yuzuru, a journalist, happened to be in Europe to report on the new music that was emerging everywhere - but foremostly in Germany. A tour with DAF, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, promoting their 'Alles ist gut' Album at the time, was to follow in June of '81, which cemented DIE KRUPPS' reputation as being a fine live-band, and which established them as a force to be reckoned with. Now, 30 years later, DIE KRUPPS are still in existence, touring and playing to fanatic audiences across the globe. There is no end to infinity.

The complete concert is made available here for the first time.
