How bad is this going to be?
Well, only half the band is left, but they put on a good to great show. The material is somewhat eccentric and not for everyone. Even if you don't care for it, it's worth going just to see Prarie Prince..unquestionably the most underrated drummer of the last 30 years.
Kraftwerk demands a lot from the listener...I always liked electronic music that wasn't geared for the dance clubs. Unfortunately, a lot of that stuff is lost on people on this side of the Atlantic. I've freaked a few people out with Autoban
in my time....the ones left standing were subjected to Magma and Synergy, that usually took care of the rest
