Musik Non Stop (Or, Krautastic Tuesday)

I'm feeling a little more than strapped to my computer today - hence, Krautastic Tuesday this week is all about the Robot.

I'm not sure how or when German culture (music and art especially) picked up the harsh/all-black/robot-ist-fantastisch stereotype...but here are some examples of it at its zenith.

Below: Kraftwerk's Musik Non Stop and Klaus Nomi's Total Eclipse.

Und...und...und...the first appearance of Mike Myers as Dieter - click here.


hello, my name is danny. said...

well, whenever and however the german culture got the emblematic stark, black, and curt image attached to it, they did it right.

kraftwerk is still awesome to listen to even after all these years. and klaus nomi...who didn't try and emulate him at least once during the eighties?

and mike myers' dieter shtick was so brilliant.

I'm slowly becoming a fan of Kraftwerk. I just saw their video for The Robots (1979 release?) over the weekend.
