Freebase

  1. Organisation

    Organisation was an experimental Krautrock band, that was the immediate predecessor of the band Kraftwerk. In addition to the founding members of Kraftwerk, Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider-Esleben, Organisation consisted of Basil Hammoudi, Butch Hauf and Alfred "Fred" Mönicks. Charly Weiss, Peter Martini and Paul Lorenz were sometimes also included in Organisation. A video recording by German TV broadcaster WDR exists of the band performing "Ruckzuck", a piece that appeared on the first Kraftwerk album in 1970. The performance took place at the Grugahalle in Essen on 25 April 1970 as part of the Essener Pop und Blues Festival. This was their last performance as Organisation, Hutter and Schneider-Esleben went on to form Kraftwerk, leaving Hammoudi, Hauf and Mönicks to go to university. Their only album, Tone Float, produced and engineered by Konrad "Conny" Plank, was released on the RCA Victor label in the UK in the summer of 1970. As it was available in Germany only as an import, sales were poor and RCA opted to drop the band shortly afterwards, at which point they disbanded. Hammoudi, Hauf and Mönicks returned to university to complete their studies, leaving Hütter and Schneider-Esleben to continue as Kraftwerk.

    An organisation is like a tree. Its growth is measured by the height it attains and the width it covers. It is largely considered GREEN because of its leaves.

If its branch (head) is functionally weak, the same part will always complain of being laden with too many leaves (employees) but the strong will grow more.
