Profile
Classically trained musicians Florian Schneider and Ralf Hütter formed Organisation in 1968. Their music was a mixture of sounds, feedback and rhythm. The band took part in various performances at art galleries and universities. They recorded one album for RCA Victor early 1970. The line up was Fred Monicks on drums, Butch Hauf on bass, Basil Hammoudi on percussion, Florian Schneider on flute and violin, and Ralf Hütter on organ. The original sales were poor but nowadays it is highly sought after and many bootleg releases exist. After Organisation Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider continued as Kraftwerk.
