For those of us unlucky enough to have the Museum Of Modern Art ticket site crush our Kraftwerk dreams, the German electronic-minimalist band has a consolation prize for us: a limited edition boxset of the 2009 digital masters boxset The Catalogue.
The Catalogue (Retrospective Edition) will be released April 10 via Astralwerks to commemorate the start of the band’s week-long retrospective performances at MOMA. It includes eight remastered CDs in “mini-vinyl” card wallet packaging, plus individual large-format booklets. The set will come packaged in a black box and will be made available as an individually numbered, worldwide edition of the 2,000 copies to be distributed.
The special edition boxset can be purchased online at the MOMA Store site or in person at the Manhattan and PS1 sites. Let’s hope the robots don’t get to these first.
