He also played with Neu! before they released their first album.

There was just a comment I heard on the radio that I think puts it into perspective. Autobahn was released only 4 years after Let It Be. Its hard to remember how much of a step forward it was at the time.
Resistance isn't futile it's V / I.
S'funny, I was discussing that very topic with a guy 'at work' this morning. I mentioned my liking of Tangerine Dream - the conversation got onto how groundbreaking the early electronic music was. In the early/mid 1970's Phaedra was a pretty extreme album. Even Tomita's Snowflakes, Planets, Pictures, etc. which can sound a little twee now were really innovative in their time (The Holst estate tried to stop Tomita's Planets, which is ironic given that 'Classical' is the ultimate cover version music).
Oh yes, I had Aqua; twittering and bubbling with the jet plane flying overhead. The track “Panorphelia” had an oddly disturbing atmosphere if I remember rightly.

I saw Krafters in Victoria. Loved Autibahn , was that back in 72? Saw Tomita in glorious 4 channel at Hammersmith Odeon, never got to see Jean Michel Oxygene. But what an era of music. Florian was a great showroom dummy. Made me almost want to go to Dusseldorf.
Philosophers have only interpreted the world - the point, however, is to change it. No it isn't ... maybe we should leave it alone for a while.
