  • "FUTURE DAYS is a book about that thing we point at when we say "Krautrock," which is a word that should never have been used and should never survive to the present day. I feel like that truth that the word just stuck and became a practical label isn't reason enough, but the fact remains that there really isn't another word that covers the entire movement. A movement that lasted from 1968 to, what, 1975? "Elektronische" doesn't necessarily cover everything, and neither does "kosmische."" (Warren Ellis, writing in Orbital Operations, 1 February 2015)
