this cute video from @yebisu303 is a perfect way to end the Kernkraft 400 week.
I hope you enjoyed some of the stories. Next time you’ll hear me talking about Kernkraft 400 will be in 2029 for the 30 year anniversary.
In the meantime let’s get back to making music and exploring new horizons.Continue Reading

He was pushing the idea that I should do a ‘pretend-DJ set’ with hands in the air and some dancers. No chance. I remember him saying at some point ‘you do it my way or we’ll have to cancel your appearance on Top Of The Pops’. My response: “well then cancel it”Continue Reading
Things went fast in early 2000s. Kernkraft 400 was licensed to labels in different countries. A more straightforward remix of Kernkraft had gained a lot of traction. A video had to be made. The script sounded nice enough so I went along with it. I am still not sure what to think of the result 🙂

This is the very first video we made for the original version of the song with a budget of 500 Deutschmarks, cut on ancient software.
It’s a true treasure – unfortunately this is the only copy there is, and it’s not exactly HD. Anyway, you get the idea:
The super important Kernkraft brain was salvaged from a body and had to be transported. The transport gets interrupted by Zombies with machine guns who want to get a hold of this brain. Maybe they want to eat it, maybe they just want to have it. Or they wanted to save it from being used by a corporation for some evil purpose. We will never know. As they fly off into the pixel filled air it is unclear if this is a happy ending or not.Continue Reading
Meanwhile at the kitchen table …Continue Reading
