Meet Iggy Pop And David Bowie


A hat-trick of German related posts, and a train related one too. In 2004 Kraftwerk toured. We saw them at The Apollo and it was stunning, not least the films that played with each song, the light up ties and the robots. This song is one of their best, Trans Europe Express, from the Maximum-Minimum live album that came out the year after the tour. A Kraftwerk live album seems a bit like a contradiction in terms doesn't it? This song was recorded at the romantic sounding Budapest Sportarena.

Heard it. It's good but I find the joke wears a bit thin after a while.

My hopes of making a date on this tour were dashed when my mate's tickets failed to arrive. I wanted to see them very much : (
