I remember going to a Kraftwerk concert. The normal rock concert has a
group leaping about the stage, with explosions and flashing lights.
Good fun.

But Kraftwerk were so different.......
Their stage was almost dark, with just four shadowy figures seated at
electronic machines.
Then the music started, building till the hall was trembling and your
chest was thumping.
Quite an experience.
