Let's take a moment, shall we, to bow at the temple that is Kraftwerk.
Loved by musos and hated by wives and girlfriends everywhere (at least that's been my experience.) Kraftwerk
have amused and inspired me since my early teens. They're still great...as you can see here.
For those unindoctrinated, Kraftwerk are the most influential electronic-based band in history. Famously snubbing, Elton and Michael Jackson/Quincy Jones, this group's
rhythms and minimal arrangements have jumpstarted hip hop, trance, and electro genres of music. They have a great, interactive website, as well.
Check it out. They're fun.
