Various Artists

Trans Slovenia Express Vol. 2

This followup to 1994's Kraftwerk tribute album Trans Slovenia Express features many new artists and of course Laibach, who are the best known outside of Slovenia. Like the first album, it's split pretty evenly between straight up homages and complete reinterpretations of this very influential German band. Laibach - a band unabashedly influenced by Kraftwerk - is the purest examplar of their Kling klang muzik on their Bruderschaft, an apparent original (it sounds like Brat Moj, to my ears) very much in the style of Kraftwerk. The band Silence is also there, which is fitting as they now constitute half of Laibach's current configuration. Hard rock band Siddharta turns The Robots into a balls-out arena rocker. It's a fun update to the fascinating original concept and broadens our scope towards the Slovene music scene.

  1. Laibach - Bruderschaft
  2. Silence (Featuring Anne Clark) - Hall Of Mirrors
  3. Siddharta - The Robots
  4. Stroj - The Metal On Metal
  5. Octex - Computer Love
  6. Torul - It's More Fun To Compute
  7. Rozmarinke - Radioactivity
  8. Moob - Telephone Call
  9. Alenia - Home Computer
  10. Bast - Mitternacht
  11. O.S.T. - Metropolis
  12. Lara-B - Hall Of Mirrors
  13. Sequan - Metropolis
  14. iTurk (Featuring Maya) - Sex Object

Thanks Slobodan!
I copped the picture from somewhere out there. I've been watching lots of Cramps bootlegs lately and I still love Ivy. I should scan the pic of her astride a motorbike that's on the inside of RockinandreelininNewZealand.

And we have commentor Kristof to thank for Part 1. He has also posted some found links to various Laibach albums.
