Kraftwerk - Kometenmelodie 3

So - back from a weekend in Dusseldorf and I'm uploading a Kraftwerk track? Yes, I am that predictable...

BUT - not just any Kraftwerk track, as this is a 27 min epic from a live album I picked up in an excellent record shop on Saturday.

*EDIT* I've now uploaded the full record for my Kraftwerk-loving birthday-boy London pal. Side A is a continuous track on the vinyl and that's the way you're getting it on the mp3. Enjoy, Bill!

We did indeed visit the Kling Klang studios on Valentines day - knew what to look for thanks to this YouTube clip - only snag was that it seemed to be shut for the day. Oh well, plenty of comedy video footage was obtained anyway. I didn't realise that it was right in the middle of what appeared to be a red-light district. Plenty of opportunities for a but of executive relief after a hard day's knob twiddling, I'll bet...

If anyone is looking for a cheap weekend city break I couldn't recommend this place enough, we went to an amazing Sonic Youth exhibition spread over two different venues - one of which is an underground tunnel - a highlight was me sitting on a chair suspended from the ceiling by four guitar strings, each one hooked up to its own wee amp, strumming away. Mental!
