Kraftwerk, branded forever

By October 31, 2013November 1st, 2013scribble

A live gig by Kraftwerk, a remarkable experience. They don’t move, they don’t talk and I even wonder what is done live, still Kraftwerk keeps your attention throughout a gig. Strong bold graphics, 3D elements, they still seem ahead of most bands out there. Even the minimal lyrics they have are still relevant, you just add something to a song like Radioactivit├Ąt and it seems as you’ve created the song yesterday. “Tschernobyl, Harrisburgh, Sellafield, Hiroshima, Fukoshima, Stopt Radioaktivitat, Weil ‘s um unsere Zukunft geht”. Indeed, the future, lets hope they don’t have to adjust these lyrics again but Kraftwerk in the 70s or in 2013, I’ve never seen such a timeless brand and band.
