Kraftwerk – Showroom Dummies (US 12″)

So I saw Kraftwerk a few weeks ago and they were fab….no amazing!!! They play Manchester Bridgewater Hall tonight, which sold out in seconds hence why I ended up going to Dublin. They didn’t play this wonderfully sinister/tongue in cheek tune from 1977. Lovingly recorded as nature intended from 1977 with a few pops and crackles – Analogue you see!! (Thanks Mike B.) I love the “French Version” best, it doesn’t seem that evil! Are they specially remixed “Disco” versions ? I don’t know….Camp as!! (That sound of breaking glass sounds like an explosion!) John Foxx was definitely taking notes, as was half my musical heroes.
