    Sad news! All these guys, Millie Small, Dave Greenfield and now Florian Schneider were not that much older than I am!

    Always liked Kraftwerk - so that's what I'll be playing now.

    It's shocking I'm going to stop reading the news - I feel like the voice of Doom

    Very sad news.
    It was hearing Autobahn that was the catalyst for my journey of appreciation and love of Krautrock.

    So, so sad - they were my musical beginning, fortunate to see them live in Glasgow at the Barrowlands more than twenty years ago, the original line up.

    Complete class

    Computer Love is my favourite track of all time

    I'm fortunate enough to have seen them live too, although not the classic line-up. I saw them at Manchester velodrome and at the Tate Modern when they did a series of concerts playing a whole LP per night, we went to the Electric Cafe evening, it was the only night we could get tickets for.

    I was thinking that too - when I see one of your "has to be done" posts on Spinning Today, I think, oh no, who is it now? But three in as many days, that's just awful.

    Yeah, a very sad loss for music... Will be honouring the great man by spinning this classic album next, on vinyl, just as it should be heard:



    Proper Kraftwerk

    I've got that record too.
    I do think for some fans pre-Autobahn Kraftwerk are, if not unknown, then at least a bit of an irrelevance. Even for Kratwerk themselves it seems to be so, all the reissues and remix stuff they have done ignores that part of their output.
