blatantlyloquacious ha chiesto: Thank you for all of the kind words! :) I got into Kraftwerk after seeing the video for "The Robots" online. It was far from anything I'd seen before and sounded so different from what I thought of as "electronic" music. I wasn't quite sure if I liked it or not, but I was definitely fascinated. I listened more and more, and found myself loving them. I didn't know before, but my father had most of Kraftwerk's albums on CD, so I borrowed them. Later on, he got me a ton of LPs in Europe!
Wah, such great! Me, too, listening to The Robots for the first time in 2011, it was strange, but…it was as if I knew Kraftwerk eternally, though I knew them only by name ‘til that time! Strange, don’t you think? I suppose there was a sort of affinity through the years, from 2004 to 2011, I just can’t explain xD Me, too, I got into swing seeing The Robots clip :) So I started from 2012 buying old LPs by Kraftwerk. Here is my collection <3 I post you a photograph :) Kraftwerk 1 & 2 are bootlegs. But I’m lookin’ for originals, though they’re expensive ( :( ). What about you? I’m curious by seeing your collection. I’m looking foreward for it! :D Dear greetings,
blatantlyloquacious ha chiesto: Out of curiosity, how did you get interested in Kraftwerk?
Hello, nice to meet you :) Well, I just know Kraftwerk by name since I was 12, but I wasn’t so as interested in their music as now. How can I say, I was just ‘terrified’ by Electro music those years, by those anxious vocoder robotic sounds. You just asked me how did I get interested in Kraftwerk; that’s a good question, because…I can’t explain what kind of feelings I get, knowing their Philosophical approach. That’s just a state of mind, believe me. There’s something special in what they do, in what they say. I’m fascinated by their cryptical personality. Sentences as ‘From silence to everywhere’ give me shivers deep inside (positively, naturally). Kraftwerk are just apotropaic, I think. So, I just try to study their interesting psychological gestures :) Hoping I’ve been exhausting enough ^_^ Thanks for asking! Good Tumblr! :D
