Notes I’m mad about Kraftwerk, but I’m not a completist. I don’t need to own every variation of every release. I have, however, listened to them more than any other artist since I signed up to last.fm in 2004, by quite a long chalk.

I do wish I still had the ticket stub to the 1981 Computer World-era concert I attended in full-on New Romantic garb (including homemade tartan trousers) in 1981 at the Hammersmith Odeon.

I danced my socks off throughout their 2005 concert in Holland and grinned from ear to ear for much of the time too. After that concert Fritz Hilpert kindly signed the postcards for my children.

I was thrilled by the appearance of the English cycling team at the Manchester velodrome. My kids still say it was one of their best ever experiences (well they’ve long lives ahead of them I hope).

Unlike some, I’m very glad they’re still performing and would be overjoyed if they chose to play their retrospective concerts at, say, Tate Modern, to a much larger audience than was able to see them at the recent NY MOMA series.

I first heard Kraftwerk at age 8 when Autobahn was released and my dad uncharacteristically purchased the LP.

I continue to appreciate the group’s humour as well as their music’s humanity, pathos and beauty.
