Es werde Flöten!
Kraftwerk

Dangerous Minds just brought to our attention this early Kraftwerk performance on German TV show Rockpalast that was just uploaded to YouTube (by Chunklet). Very early -- 1970, the year Kraftwerk formed. This was when they looked like hippies, back before the late Klaus Dinger left to form Neu! and before they turned into the men machine we know and love today. It's weird, experimental stuff -- though they lock into some killer grooves too -- and you can watch the whole thing below.

You can catch Kraftwerk -- the 3-D robot version -- live on tour this year, including their two sold-out shows at NYC's United Palace next week.

Rockpalast is still on the air, by the way, and recently showed the current version of Kraftwerk, which you can watch over at their website. Watch that 1970 Rockpalast performance in full below...

They are quite good for an amateur performer. Its pretty obvious that they really like what they do. I'm sure this band will go a long way.

We’re going to include a new factor to a Dodge 2011, it needs the earlier key including identical a fresh key. First, connect KP819 auto key prorammer with all the OBD cable and talk with the automobile OBD.

Fascinating to consider the whole audience was conceived by Nazis during the Third Reich.
