Kraftwerk fans?

Just a bit curious to see if there are any oldschool electronic music fans around here

Oh yes, Kraftwerk rocks!!! I still play Numbers a lot, not to mention the Man-Machine album. Still gotta get Tour de France, but i'll find it one day.

Yes. Man-Machine on vinyl and tube amplifier did something to me.

Re: Kraftwerk fans?

Cool, nice to see some Kraftwerk fans. :2gunsfiring_v1: ( Rasta guy totally unrelated but somehow totally fiiting!)

They are actually playing at the Museum Of Modern art in NYC...every album, one each night, oh man that must be something!

@Evelon: Man-Machine is simply beautiful. Its a very warm, inspiring record. The melodies are in some ways kind of simple, but deep and lush at the same time. Glad you like it too.

"Simplicity" goes a very very long way.

Yeah, (to clarify) I'm thinking kindergarten tunes, national anthems, logos, signs, general designs, etc.

Re: Kraftwerk fans?

I love Kraftwerk. The Hasting's in my town was selling the entire Kraftwerk body of work in one of those huge collection boxes for like $75.

I do hate that people often loop them in the same category as Front242 and other oldschool EBM.

In many ways you are right. I am a big Kraftwerk fan, but it is very frustrating how many people think they pioneered Electronic music, and tend to completely overlook artists like Walter/Wendy Carlos, Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre, and so on...i also dont feel that kraftwerk ever took the music to the depths these other guys did.

But, as the "Beatles of Electronic music", they certainly were a great band, and still are i guess....though none of the original members are still in it. :-/

Self-confessed Kraftwerk fan here. Ralf und Florian and Autobahn are my favourite albums. I like that era of German Rock when bands like Neu! and Kraftwerk where producing this pastoral soft electronic music. The live video for Tanzmusik on Youtube is epic.

Yeah man, if it wasnt for Krautrock, i am not sure Electronic music would have taken the path it did. I am sure it would have happened, but how, and most importantly...how would it have played out?

I find myself listening to Kraftwerk way too rarely. I only own two of their records, but whenever I put something from them playing it's good time... Time for Radio-Aktivitt now, thanks for reminding.
