Tom at Music Thing links to this absurdly awesome Kraftwerk video from 1975. (1975!) I like Kraftwerk a great deal; however, I am reminded that electronic music is not only an expensive hobby but an extremely dorky one. (Wait for the “lapel” discussion from the narrator.)

Wow. That’s really all I can say.

Related: buy “Possessed,” in which the Balanescu Quartet performs string-quartet arrangements of Kraftwerk songs. It’s not quite the Kronos Quartet doing “Purple Haze” — it’s better.

I’m currently listening to Trans Europe Express from the album “Minimum-Maximum” by Kraftwerk
