Song Of The Day

7/8/16 – Kraftwerk – Trans Europe Express – 1977

Trans Europe Express was the first album by Kraftwerk that I knew well. It seems that in those days Europe was a rather glamorous place, still is as far as I’m concerned and despite those that wish to leave the European community selling the idea that Britain is better off on its own, for me […]
