Wallpaper’s Kraftwerk Cover Gets Our Vote

Good luck to Tony Chambers and the Wallpaper team on their nomination for the PPA’s “Best Magazine Cover 2011″. Their superb 3D version of Ralf Hutter perfectly captures the appeal of the 70′s electric music pioneers and is undoubtably the best of the nominees.

My favourite Kraftwerk track, the 9 minute long “Europe Endless” is a glorious paean to Greater Europe. Simultaneously expressing both a strange unreal and sterile modernity and the past glories of classical European culture. Both the cover and the band get our vote.
