#Germany’s moral authority is currently under extreme duress (to put it mildly).
The role of 🇩🇪 identity & history in its response to #Ukraine has come up again & again.
I have a new piece out that deals with both of these issues (& more)
-A 🧵
The article looks at the thoroughly *international* politics of Germany’s postwar period, from 1945 to the present by looking at the electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk, their mission, context, reception & influence

Kraftwerk are today widely recognised as one of the most influential band’s in music history – but also as being illustrative of & key actors in a moves to create a new and better German identity after the war.

Sigue el ciclo temático #DiscosConArte para #TwitterCultural, con portadas de discos de #música creadas por grandes artistas.

¿Os suena esta portada? Seguro que sí: es "Dangerous", uno de los discos más famosos de Michael #Jackson. Hablemos de su arte y otros discos...

Sigue⬇️
Empezaban los 90s y Michael #Jackson, que sabía de música, entendió que el #pop de "Thriller" y "Bad" se estaba pasando de moda, así que quería (necesitaba) renovarse: despidió al legendario Quincy #Jones y contrató a Teddy #Riley.

Y en el 91 salió "#Dangerous".

Sigue ⬇️
"Dangerous" fue un bombazo ecléctico, una evolución de Jackson y una obra maestra revolucionaria. Hay de todo en ese disco: rap, soul, funk, R&B, swing... y todo muy moderno.
Y respecto del arte, también quería algo nuevo, diferente, y contrató al artista Mark #Ryden.

#BIN A esta hora, #V1brraXX10nes, la música de la posguerra... Este año, en junio, cumplirá medio siglo "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" de #DavidBowie, el álbum definitivo en su vida y también el que casi acaba con ella, como si tuviera vida propia
#BIN #ZiggyStardust fue el álbum fundacional del #GlamRock, más allá de las prendas femeninas, maquillaje y manierismos que anteriormente habían presentado #Sweet, #TRexy #Slade. Fue un álbum conceptual, lleno de letras inteligentes y con músicos que se harían legendarios.
#BIN #ZiggyStardust era un "extraterrestre bisexual", por lo que yo digo, inauguró el período espacial de #Bowie, más que #SpaceOddity (1969). El solo de guitarra de #MickRonson al final de este tema (cerca del minuto 3:25) es único, imposible de olvidar.

1) #COVID1984 makes it totes obvious that we're in midst of weird globalist mega-psyop. Power of #occultelite and #DeepState cronies to control global economy, politics and popular culture is jaw-dropping. And they've long been up to srsly sinister shit in all those fields.
2) Unless you're an utter moron, odds are you're "awakening" to hidden forces shaping much of what happens in the world. And these occult (hidden) puppet masters manipulate our perception of reality via news media with skewed reporting, etc. Also via pop music and movies.
3) Disturbing fact is that #DeepState denizens (esp from CIA) have long been applying their vast knowledge of #mindcontrol to task of conditioning the public via Hollywood in particular. There's a good doco on this called #OutofShadows. Worth a watch.

El 8 enero 1947 nacía David Bowie. En este hilo, voy a desvelar todos los secretos de la canción q interpretó junto a Freddie Mercury: "Under Pressure" considerada la mejor línea de bajo de la historia. Desde los cielos, #Queen #FreddieMercury #DavidBowie #Bowie #UnderPressure
En julio de 1981, Queen se encontraba grabando el álbum "Hot Space" en los Estudios Mountain (Montreux - Suiza). En esta localidad no sólo Freddie tenía una residencia, sino q David Bowie se había mudado tb a la zona del Cantón de Vaud. Roger Taylor era amigo de Bowie y le pidió
q se acercara un día x el estudio de grabación a hacerles una visita. Ese día llegó, y sugirieron la idea de hacer una canción juntos. No había tiempo material para crear un tema desde cero, así q mostraron a Bowie alguna maqueta (demo) de las sesiones de "Hot Space". Una de las
