Kraftwerk- Groundbreakingly Goobertastic!

Alright, uber computer goobers, here's a blast from the past! The pasty, robotic German group, KRAFTWERK created some pretty groovy sounds in the 80's with their, then, groundbreaking use of synths and voice modulation. They were later lampooned in, or at least, an inspiration for the Mike Meyers Saturday Night Live skit, Sprockets.

I still have COMPUTER WORLD and AUTOBAHN on tape somewhere. The musical equivalant of dot matrix and DOS, let's get down to the multi-lingual count fest, NUMBERS from Kraftwerk.
