Options April 12, 2009: Pyrolator live session + dj set
Kurt Dahlke aka Pyrolator is a key figure in the history of German New Wave. In addition to being a member of the great off-kilter electropop trio Der Plan, Dahlke was a founding member of the first incarnation of D.A.F, whose debut album was the initial release on Ata Tak, the label co-founded by Dahlke that went on to release the music of seminal bands such as Die Todliche Doris, Wirtschaftwunder and Oval. Since the Eighties Kurt has continued collaborating, composing and playing in bands (A Certain Frank) and producing and remixing acts (Kreidler, to rococo rot, Fehlfarben). Currently in New York for a few weeks playing some shows w/ Lukas Ligeti's Burkina Electric project, Dahlke is dropping by WFMU for a Pyrolator live set of unreleased electronic material using the Lightning II controller (built by Don Buchla!) that allows him to control the music by the movement or the pressure of his hands. Pyrolator will then spin tracks of Ata Tak past and present. In between we'll chat about Dusseldorf and German punk and new wave as well as Herr Pyrolator's more recent adventures.

Hey Daniel, I was just playing with the radio dial in search of a Judas Priest track played backwards. Are we going to get some "The Wirtschaftswunder" tunes instead? There is so much more to German music than "Scorpions"!

Happy Birthday!

Thx, Ifor! I have placed a request for Wirtschaftswunder! Stay tuned!

Great show. Great guest!

By any chance is this an old Weather Report tune Kurt's playing now? In any case, it's great. Thanks to you both for the tasty space!
