[Free Music Friday: Cover of Kraftwerk’s ‘Radioactivity’]

 Kraftwerk’s music will come to life in Buffalo all this week thanks to the Kraftwerkers of Buffalo event. A host of musicians from around the area will take a stab at re-interpreting select works from the German groups’ catalog in honor of the MOMA retrospective happening next week. See the list of events below for more info.

To get you ready for it here is a cover of Kraftwerk’s 1975 track “Radioactivity.” The song is covered by German artist  WOLKENKUCKUCKSHEIM. 

You can catch a performance of the Radio-Activty album at Hardware’s Backroom on Wednesday by Martin Freeman and TJ Borden.
