fraSome time back in 1974 I first heard a single by the German group Kraftwerk. The tune was very hypnotic and I was amazed at the sound they made. In the middle of the glam-rock period here was a band that was so far wide of being cool that they were actually cool. I heard them and then saw them on television playing all these electronic instruments. They took a look at music and then completely dissected it and uploaded it into the primitive computers of the day. What they produced was the most influential music in popular music history.
