Space Is the Place
Plump Kraut Control


... is Germany's most disreputable English-language website dedicated to post-modernist academic ephemera & other dead-on-arrival non-sequiturs, mostly to do with Krautrock, cosmic prog and other uncool retro stuff of the tonal variety. This is not a website. This is a project. Down with lineality, design, and art ... and to hell with the rest of it.

On this website we hate feedback. No, you won't be able to send in comments or start any well-balanced dialogue. This is the real world. Call it Modernity if you will. Bugger off Web 2.0. Down with service-orientated pseudo-politeness and senseless data-grabbing. This is shlock. Pure and plain. DAS PLUMPE DENKEN. Don't think big ─ think Plump with a capital P. The Datenschutzgrundverordnung ─ a German word we had to learn the hard way ─ has become our special fetish. Hail thee, European Union, for all the joy your General Data Protection Regulation has brought. It's a real rockershocker worthy of any cosmic prog fan's permanent attention (and Datenschutzerklärung). We couldn't have concocted it in any other way ourselves.

What's post-modernism? Why all that sepia space?

does it all mean? Why from Germany? Who killed the mutton chops? What price bananas? Howl! And what is Krautrock anyway? Where's the philosophy bit? Questions, questions, and no clues. You might find some answers if you're energetic enough. A jolly good time is guaranteed for all. Start with the Plump Kraut Control section. A work in progress. But what is progress?
