Tit for Tat 


Yes, we know that Kraftwerk influenced most everybody from The Normal to Depeche Mode to whoever, but who influenced Kraftwerk?


Kraftwerk drew on the influence of experimental electronic forces such as composer Karlheinz Stockhausen and Tangerine Dream to create minimalist music on synthesizers,drum machines and tape recorders.

They were also influenced by their contemporaries such as the band Can. The Beach Boys were an influence, believe it or not - if you listen to the track 'Autobahn', the 'Fun Fun Fun on the Autobahn' section is HEAVILY influenced by The Beach Boys. Hutter also admired their experimentation, particularly on their 'Pet Sounds' album.

They were also influenced by 30's culture and Art Deco imagery. Ralf Hütter: "The culture of Central Europe was cut off in the thirties, and many of the intellectuals went to the USA or France, or they were eliminated. We are picking it up again where it left off, continuing this culture of the thirties, and we are doing this spiritually".
