October 29th to 31th, 2015 will see a unique event in Düsseldorf, Germany: "Electri_city Conference", a gathering of academics and music fans to discuss the influence of bands from that area on the music industry. Acts like Kraftwerk, Neu!, Harmonia, Propaganda and DAF turned the pop world upside down in the late 70s and early 80s and influenced generations to come. Organizer Rudi Esch (Die Krupps) has assembled an impressive line-up of speakers for the event, ranging from Rusty Egan (Visage) to Peter Hook (New Order) and Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire). Check out the program:
We're especially honored to have been selected as a support act for synthpop legends Heaven 17, a group that can be counted as one of our main influences, on the evening of the 29th. Our 45 min. gig will have us playing most songs from our upcoming new album.
