Kraftwerk performing “The Robots” and “Radioactivity” on French TV

Hahaha! It never ends!! Look at the energy they put into the performance!

Kraftwerk performing “Pocket Calculator” on Italian TV in 1981

IN ITALIAN. Holy crap. I have never heard this before and it is awesome. Look at these fucking guys! LOOK! It’s figuratively inconceivable that this is the same band as the video below:

Same band! Same members (mostly!)! Holy crap! I LOVE KRAFTWERK!!!!!

Kraftwerk performs “Autobahn” live on US TV in 1975

I don’t know (or care) about you, but this shit still sounds like the future to me. Long live Kraftwerk!

Monarchy’s “The Phoenix Alive”

After bitching about being sad last week, let me start this week with a music video because it means I don’t actually have to provide you with any meaningful content. You might get a letter later, not sure. We’ll see.

I’ve been listening to this Monarchy record a bit recently and I am a little mixed on it. I like the music, but the dude’s lyrics are kind of bullshit sometimes and kind of good other times. And when they’re kind of bullshit I get pulled right out of the music. Too bad. But I really like this song and I dig the astronaut video all in close up that they probably shot in a dark room. Simple, nice effects, cool song. A smidge emo, but who isn’t a smidge emo right now?

One other question, Monarchy. Is this the fucking obelisk that turns into the phone booth in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure on your album cover?

Because if it is, that is awesome.
