Don’t Mention The War (21): Nicky Wire (Manic Street Preachers) über die Krautrock-Band Cluster

Der Songwriter der Manic Street Preachers, Nicky Wire, über das Album „Zuckerzeit“ der deutschen Krautrock-Band Cluster:

„I’m fascinated and obsessed by the whole Krautrock era, how so much creativity can come from an idea. And the way that so many bands can splinter into each other – from Neu! to Harmonia to Cluster – but all of them sound different. You can see why Bowie was listening to so much stuff in the mid-70’s. There’s a track on „Zuckerzeit“ called „Caramel“ that I think Damon Albarn might have nicked for the Blur track of the same name on „13“. So many of the drum sounds you can hear on anything on Warp Records, but the genius of it is that it’s all done organically, with people messing around with boxes and wires.“
