80's Electronica still thumps ~ Kraftwerk

Kraftwerk came together in 1970, yup that's right almost as old as your mama. Florian Schneider on flutes, synthesizers, electro-violin and Ralf Hütter on the electronic organ and synthesizers. The video above is for Musique Non-Stop which came out in 1986. Kraftwerk is one of the first music acts to record using pure electronically processed instruments and sounds exclusively. Many of the vocals in its songs are processed through a vocoder or generated using speech sythesis software. Their lyrics are minimal, usually a knowing caution about the modern world, as well as playing an integral role in the rhythmic structure of the songs. Their latest releases include a 2008 release of their hit Computer Love.

Enoy yourself, rock this joint. I gotta get back to work.
