Trans Europe Express

The Thin Air, an Irish music magazine published this essay of mine on Kraftwerk’s Trans-Europe Express on its 40th anniversary and it’s importance as both radical critique of European integration and an exploration of its necessity. Have a read of it through the link below.

“It captures the increasing conformity that is necessary for the integration of Europe to occur yet also the anxiety of the slow disintegration of any escape, of any alternative mode of being. It is only when the showroom dummies go to a club and dance, that the dummies become human.”
