11 May 11 Claudia, Ralf and Susanne part of the Eurovision Song Contest festivities in Düsseldorf

Never thought I would ever attend a Eurovision Song Contest festivity....! Rumours were Propaganda will completely reunite with all four protagonists on stage to have a teutonic party in their (old) hometown. Center TV was on top of the news...:

Officially, from the Onetwo and Propaganda FB and MS:

'Stars of the electronic scene to bring 80s vibe to Stadtwerke turbine hall'

Together with Kraftwerk's Wolfgang Flür, Claudia, Susanne and Ralf (and Paul!) will be the stars of a very special electro night at the Turbinenhalle of Dusseldorf's Stadtwerke on Wednesday May 11 as part of the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 festivities.

Rüdiger Esch (Die Krupps), Claudia Brücken and Wolfgang Flür

'Back in the 80s, bands like Kraftwerk, the Krupps, and Propaganda planted the roots of electronic music in Düsseldorf, and the musical style has grown from here, with branches reaching far beyond the German borders. The British band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), for example, was heavily influenced by Kraftwerk. Düsseldorf's municipal utility company (Stadtwerke) will host an event dedicated to the music of the 80s on 11 May at 7 p.m., not only to give 'Lena fever' a boost, but also to show that the old 80s heroes continue to thrill fans of all ages.'

'In the Stadtwerke's turbine hall in Flingern, at the very roots of the Düsseldorf energy company, former Kraftwerk member Wolfgang Flür will read from his book 'I was a Robot', with musical accompaniment from Thilo Schölpen, who will interpret some of the most famous Kraftwerk songs on the piano. Next, Claudia Brücken, singer of the band Propaganda, and Paul Humphreys, OMD keyboardist, will take the stage to present hits from both bands' repertoires with their electronic quartet 'Onetwo'. Special guests Susanne Freytag and Ralf Dörper from Propaganda will also make an appearance, performing chart successes, 'Dr. Mabuse' and 'P-Machinery', and Andy McCluskey from OMD will also join on stage for a couple of numbers!'

Oh, what a night: reviews, so far

i-D magazine online 15.03.11 ...'She's not resting on her laurels though - dressed in a Westwood number, Brücken has grown into herself. At 47 she's quite a lady but still retains an endearing self-consciousness about her demeanor.'...

Record Collector April 2011

electricity-club.co.uk 13.03.11 ...'In fine voice throughout, she captured the hearts of all who were present and was humbly appreciative in return. It was an outstanding evening, delightfully performed and presented... .almost perfect in fact.'...

NME mag 08.03.11

remembertheeighties.com (reviews) ...'Claudia sounded convincing and faultless throughout the night with the enthusiastic audience hanging onto every word'...'The band sounded tight and totally on the same page on every single track, one of the best I have heard live with such a set-up'...'Essential'...

Wednesday 19th January 2011 -
“Before there was Ellie Goulding there was Goldfrapp...
Before there was Goldfrapp there was Claudia Brücken...
Claudia is Europe's diva of electronic music whose records mark critical points of 80s, 90s and 00s art pop.”

Zang Tuum Tumb (ZTT) / SALVO present ‘Combined’ the story so far of Claudia Brücken’s life in pop, from 1984 to the present day. From the cinematic electronica of Propaganda to the dark showbiz fantasies of Act. Claudia solo, Claudia in combination with Andy Bell (Erasure), Chrome Seduction, Martin L. Gore, Andrew Poppy, Stephen Hague, Thomas Leer, Trevor Horn, Paul Humphreys (OMD), Paul Rutherford (Frankie Goes To Hollywood), and… Claudia as herself.

‘Combined’ presents eight of Claudia's classic recordings... Propaganda's hit singles (Dr Mabuse, p:Machinery, Duel), her two singles as Act (Absolutely Immune, Snobbery & Decay), her 90s solo singles (Kiss Like Ether, Absolut(e)) both produced by Pascal Gabriel (Kylie, Goldfrapp, Ladyhawke), her 2005 duet with Andy Bell (Delicious)......combined with five brand new works: Night School and Thank You – two brand new solo tracks co-written with and produced by Stephen Hague (Pet Shop Boys, New Order); This is Not America – duetting the David Bowie classic with Paul Rutherford (Frankie Goes To Hollywood); In Dreams – Roy Orbison's Blue Velvet soundtrack gem in collaboration with Andrew Poppy. On the album two tracks are included from Claudia's current band Onetwo: Sequentia (previously unreleased) and Cloud 9ine (a co-write with Depeche Mode's Martin L. Gore).

Coming to prominence as the lead vocalist in ZTT’s influential hit-making Düsseldorf combo Propaganda, Claudia Brücken was one of the more distinctive female voices of the mid-1980s (and one of the few females to front a synth-pop group). Following the implosion of Propaganda in 1986, Claudia has enjoyed a distinguished career in the arena of electronic pop and dance music, alongside a series of highly talented collaborators, including Thomas Leer (with whom she formed the cult duo Act after leaving Propaganda), Martin Gore (Depeche Mode), Paul Humphreys (OMD, Onetwo), Paul Rutherford (Frankie Goes To Hollywood) and Andy Bell (Erasure). This stylishly-packaged collection and very special LIVE show draws together the very best of Claudia’s work over the last 25 years.

this time: it's Claudia Brücken


Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 21st January 2011 and are priced £20.00 (subject to a booking fee) and are available from livenation.co.uk
