since its dead plastic music, its most probably next as undead as kraftwerk.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Pocket calculator. If you have not been annoyed by Kraftwerk "Pocket Calculator" in years, you need to go back and take a listen (or two - it is an acquired taste).
But then again, I, am an old fart.
I like Kraftwerk's stuff, but what really blew me away was a version of The Model that played at some coffee shop I was sitting at. At first I didn't recognize it (it was not the version with David Byrne, but the instrumental one. Which is crappy on youtube), but then I had to ask the waitress who the performers were. Here it is, the Balanescu Quartet performing The Model:
I hope the embedd code works this time...
The also have a version of Pcket Calculator which sounds really bad here, but it was recorded on some mobile phone I guess:
I only know three of their albums, Posessed is the Kraftwerk cover song album, Luminitza is a very good ambient style album. But to me their masterpiece is the Maria T abum, check out Wine is so good:
Nice finds. My son just started playing the cello, and likes them now.
There is also this strange band from ex-GDR: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSYhFjb-JbU
They are not using any guitars for their music, only classical string instruments.
I tlet the boy listen to it and his reply to that was to listen for a bit and then say, "Play, nyan cat", you will get a laugh about that. His judegment might be suspect.
http://www.truthorfiction.com seems to be a much better site for checking out urban myths. Snopes seems too eager to reach conclusions, sometimes with a bit of editorial bias. TruthOrFiction simply gives you the facts and lets you reach your own conclusion.
That was amusing!
