""Nobody was as advanced as Kraftwerk as far as trying to become technical and futuristic. They looked like four puppets. The whole package was phenomenal— the neon with the computer on the cover. It’s funny, there are people who are just reaching that whole teletext music thing now. Those guys were way ahead.
People were still primitive when Kraftwerk came out. They had landlines and big giant phones; phone booths were still out. Even to this day, DJs and everybody with their laptops on stage, that’s all Kraftwerk. Anything on stage without a band and instruments— anything that’s done on the computer or with pressing buttons— is Kraftwerk.” - Kool Keith"
"“Jean-Michel Basquiat spun be-bop, cool jazz, and Ellington on the turntables and no one minded the good music because of who was playing it.” —Glenn O’Brien"
