Kraftwerk/Organization-Tone Float-'70 Krautrock-NEW LP 180g

Organization / Tone Float (Kraftwerk)


Kraftwerk (Organization) - Tone Float.


Classically trained musicians Florian Schneider and Ralf Hütter formed Organisation in 1968. Their music was a mixture of sounds, feedback and rhythm. The band took part in various performances at art galleries and universities.

They recorded one album for RCA Victor early 1970. The line up was Fred Monicks on drums, Butch Hauf on bass, Basil Hammoudi on percussion, Florian Schneider on flute and violin and Ralf Hütter on organ. The original sales were poor but nowadays it is highly sought after and many bootleg releases exist.

After Organisation Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider continued as Kraftwerk.
Welcome vinyl reissue of pre-Kraftwerk psychedelic space music. Lashings of flute, keyboards, various electric instruments and percussion take you on a spaced out voyage. Incredibly rare as an original....

On Tone Float (which was recorded in 1969), Florian (credited with playing flute and a variety of acoustic percussion) and Ralf (organ) were joined by percussionists Basil Hammoudi and Fred Monicks, and bassist Butch Hauf. Hammoudi is also credited with vocals, though he doesn't really sing any words; he just chants from time to time.

Deutsch 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!
