UV Funk 014

For those of you who don’t know: Conny Plank was a German record producer, musician, audio engineerer and secret member of many of those so-called Krautrock Bands until he died way too early in 1987. One of his early friends and collaborators was Hans-Joachim Roedelius, long-time member of Cluster and Harmonia and now – even at the age of 78 – hyperactive with both his solo work and in various collabos like Qluster or his recent project with Lloyd Cole. When Roedelius was in Dresden to play his live set at a special Conny Plank tribute night at Altes Wettbuero, Philipp had the opportunity to talk to him about his relationship to Conny and his work in general.

Before that, the Leipzig based DJ and promoter esclé (who was hosting the Conny Plank tribute show with some friends) played a great DJ set with Conny Plank related songs. In fact, every record he played is from Conny Plank’s very own record collection. His son was so kind to lend esclé the records for the whole tribute tour. Last but not least you can listen to a track from Credit 00 that he produced for his special Conny Plank live set. Credit could get his hands on a large collection of sample material out of Conny’s studio for those tracks. And boy, this live set was hot! But for now, enjoy the radio show!

There are slight sound skipping issues on the show every now and then due to the recording system at coloRadio. Sorry for that!
