It's National Receptionists' Day. I would suggest doing something nice for a receptionist you might encounter today, but they're all out of work and no one goes outside, so...National Memorial Receptionists Day. They will be missed.

Good evening, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41am Scott Williams:

Start to finish, THEEEEE best Kraftwerk record, sez me
  12:42am blackbodegabag:

this is truly the best Kraftwerk album
  12:42am JakeGould:

@Scott: That is debatable but not worth the energy. They were a great band.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:43am ultradamno:

RIP Florian...and Ralf, who I have to assume has expired of a broken heart mechanism.
  12:44am JakeGould:

They are the only band that can live on as holograms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am Aitch:

Fantastic Kraftwerk show last night on Polyglot show on WFMU, 3 hours of solid V2 Florian Schneider. www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am Scott Williams:

@Jake it's the one album where the robots and the humans pulled equal emotional weight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am Scott Williams:

@Aitch, yeah Jesse really hit it outta the park with last night's Florian tribute!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46am Aitch:

Sharing the word on that one Scott W, what a show.
  12:48am JakeGould:

@Scott: I still really like “The Man-Machine” and “Computerworld”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am Scott Williams:

@Jake, I do too! I also love all 4 pre-Autobahn albums they wrote off. But Radioactivity is the one I listen to all night
  12:54am JakeGould:

And “Trans-Europe Express.” Also read about how they got they got whole idea to wear suits from a Gilbert and George art show.
  12:55am JakeGould:

We gotta agree to disagree but agree because the core Kraftwerk catalog is always good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56am coelacanth∅:

Scott, wouldn't that distinction go to autobahn?
i don't know the radio-activity album well, but as all the instrumentation is electronic, autobahn is the last album with "organic" instrumentation -and electronics.
  12:58am JakeGould:

Wolfgang Flür on the band: “Ralf had a kind of German idea in mind. Germany also needed something like The Beach Boys. Something with self-understanding and immaculate presence, after the ugly wars that our parents had inflicted on the world. Something positive and youthful, that freed us from the stench of the past.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59am Scott Williams:

@coel, that's true, but on a subjective level Radioactivity has much more emotional heft for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00am coelacanth∅:

right on. i need to become better acquainted with it.
  1:00am JakeGould:

The idea they saw themselves as a German “Beach Boys” is hilarious and extremely German in the best sense of the concept.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01am Aitch:

Computer World for me, no emotions whatsoever and the pure digital recording.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:01am McGroovey:

I'm going to disagree to disagree re: Kraftwerk. If you know what I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02am Scott Williams:

@Jake, that's a good quote, but most of Wolfgang's statements need to be taken with a grain of salt. He's appointed himself Ralf & Florian's interpreter to an artless world, somewhat bitterly, and against their wishes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02am coelacanth∅:

i can't say i agree with that
  1:05am Jim H:

This Fairy Tree is a nice piece. Very much of 1:00am.
  1:07am JakeGould:

@Scott: True. I like the fact that at least Ralf and a Florian fully and artfully maintained their mystery. Yet still created music for the people.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:07am ultradamno:

I stand resolute as a Ralf & Florian partisan. But it's all really good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08am coelacanth∅:

Wolfgang did leave bitter; but i have read that Florian, at least, was acutely aware of the world viewing them as "german" and potentially identifying them with aspects of german history that they'd like to not be associated with.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:09am ultradamno:

Plus, weren't they talking about The Stooges and Velvet Underground in terms of 'energy' a lot. Or at least for a quote I'm at least half remembering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11am coelacanth∅:

the stooges were Ralf's favorite band...or was it Florian's?
  1:11am JakeGould:

The best way to look at Kraftwerk is to look at them as art rock. They did the same thing that Robert Fripp did: They saw the prog world, said, “Nah… Gotta do something new.” and they did it.

Experimental, art, dance and hip hop were all influenced by them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12am coelacanth∅:

(hence the reference in trans-europe express)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:14am ultradamno:

Plus, I'm pretty sure Björk's sex 'bot video is a direct homage. OK, I'm being coy, I know it's All Is Full Of Love. And The Residents Krafty Cheese from Duck Stab/Buster & Glen is one of their homages.
  1:16am JakeGould:

Let’s not forget the Nihilists in “The Big Lebowski.”
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:17am ultradamno:

Yep and Sprockets...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20am Scott Williams:

Ralf was obsessed with The Stooges, true! He even sang about meeting Iggy on TEE
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:22am ultradamno:

I actually found an old pocket calculator under a bookshelf the other day. It still works!
  1:24am Hocky Hairickson:

is static age out of asheville?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:24am ultradamno:

Oh, I know that sound
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:27am ultradamno:

This album has been my favorite PSG. Maybe because it has a similar structure to Fun House. Pretty much all rock A-side, increasing loosening through the B
  1:28am rw:

Good evening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32am TomDash:

hey rw - welcome! yeah ultrad - might be my fave too...

Had issues getting to the site via WiFi and 4G to check if something was up. In the event I could access the site to notify users there was an issue is there a “hotline” means of communication for web users to urgently report stream issues?
