    My fave Kraftwerk album. I burned out on 'em, but I still (and will always like) TMM.

    the 3-D Catalogue boxset is quite nice. thought the "Minimum-Maximum" live album was excellent, this is basically their entire catalogue done that way

BTW the Karl Bartos solo records are excellent.
    Bartos is credited!

    Well the sitcom had a few brief moments... One of the many cases where the execution doesn't quite live up to the concept.

    It made me chuckle less for the actual result than the sheer insanity of the idea, to be honest.

    great video!

    Its like one part early Cardiacs, one part Tim and Eric, and one part Kraftwerk juice.

    I remember hearing Autobahn for the first time on the radio, WMMR in Philly. Of course, that was back in the day when AOR stations commanded a large part of the market in many cities and weren't afraid to play longer tracks on air. It was one of the songs that pushed me into listening to keyboard-oriented music.

    Radioactivity and TEE tonight. I dig TEE more overall, but the tune "Radioactivity" is one of my favorite KW tunes ever. I love this stuff in headphones.
