Organisation – Tone Float (Pre-Kraftwerk!)

Out of stock

$28.00

Repressed. Inner Space present a reissue of Organisation‘s Tone Float, originally released in 1970. German rock band, Organisation, is often referred to as the prototype or predecessor of Kraftwerk — the godfathers of electronic music. In fact, it was the first iteration of Kraftwerk and if the band had managed to overrule its record label, RCA, Tone Float would have been credited as such. But given that the album was to be released only in the United Kingdom, the label opted for the more Anglicized name, “Organisation”. Tone Float is the only album produced under this name and is a seminal example of the genre. Audiences in West Germany were fortunate enough to watch and listen to the whole album, played live for German television station, EDF, and it is this broadcast featured here. The bonus track “Vor Dem Blauen Bock” (more accurately, “Rückstoß Gondoliere”), is a notable rarity in that it includes a later Organisation line-up consisting of Kraftwerk’s Florian Schneider and Klaus Dinger, and Michael Rother who would go on to form the band, Neu! Personnel: Ralf Hutter – organ; Basil Hammoudi – glockenspiel, conga gong, musical box, bangos-voice; Florian Scheider-Esleben – electric flute, alto flute, bell, triangle, tambourine, electro-violin; Butch Hauf – bass, shaky tube, small bells, plastic hammer; Fred Monicks – drums, bongos, maracas, cowbell, tambourine. Includes full floor insert with background notes and images.
