In 1986 Klaus Klang released a successful solo single, Soul Thing. In the following years he toured extensively, both solo and with his band Neverneverland. In 1991 he released a 6-track mini-album titled Highrise for the Rainland label. In 2014, Klang started playing together again, with brothers Claude and Alain on guitar/lead vocals and bass respectively, Franckson on lead guitar and Paul Englebert (formerly of The Ice Creams) on drums. The album "Meanwhile in the Cosy Garage" was self-released in February 2015.
Kling Klang (also spelled as Klingklang) is the private music studio of the band Kraftwerk. The name is taken from the first song on the Kraftwerk 2 album. The studio was originally located at Mintropstraße 16 in Düsseldorf, Germany, adjacent to Düsseldorf Hauptbahnhof, but in mid-2009 moved to Meerbusch-Osterath, around 10 kilometers west of Düsseldorf. Kling Klang (an onomatopœia; in English: ding dong) began as a studio in 1970; the band marked this as the real beginning of Kraftwerk.
Not surprisingly, the earlier 1974 album is the better of the two, with Lenz still involved as leader. Curiously, and to their detriment in my opinion, both of these are live albums. But the track Fusion is magnificent, with its classical compositional intro developing the theme: Oddly enough this track or at least its name reappears in a 1978 album by the same name when the band is rechristened the Jazz and Rock Machine (like Dauner's United Jazz and Rock Ensemble, though Machine is definitely much punchier)
