Kraftwerk Live

I had the pleasure of the seeing the legendary Kraftwerk live in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. It was an amazing show and I was fortunate enough to bump into mp3s of their appearance two days later at the Cochella festival at this secret location which I saw on the boards on NewOrderOnline.
Speaking of New Order, today is the anniversary of the death of Joy Division's singer Ian Curtis. A sad time, and I've been listening to a bit of JD to mark the occasion. Interesting note, Curtis was a bit of a Kraftwerk obsessive and had his band listen to Kraftwerk before taking the stage for live shows years before they would fully adopt electronics as New Order.
