In this issue of Electronic Sound : With this issue of Electronic Sound, we place Conny centre stage and celebrate his work, and we scarcely mention Kraftwerk. Plank’s contribution to music is almost immeasurable, and although we’ve devoted the cover story to him, and talked to several key players in his life, including his son Stephan, whose new documentary about his dad got this month’s ball rolling, we feel we’ve hardly scratched the surface.
Also within these pages for your reading pleasure The Don Of Techno (or should that be the Jack Dee of Techno?) Dave Clarke shoots the breeze with us, we go backstage with Düsseldorf prepared piano outfit Grandbrothers, visit Claire M Singer’s ‘Organ Reframed’ event at Islington’s Union Chapel (her thing is the church organ, which is quite a thing and should be used more widely, despite them being bloody huge and generally stuck in churches), we find out all about the wildly popular ‘Welcome To Night Vale’ podcast, Kevin Godley talks us through the making of Godley & Creme’s ‘Cry’, there’s Andrew Hung, one half of 50 per cent of Fuck Buttons, on his splendid solo album, and we talk to Thomas Dolby – at last – about his, frankly, amazing life so far in light of his book making it out in paperback.
