Looking for Kraftwerk covers...

As I mentioned on the other thread, Trouble Funk did "Trouble Funk Express" which is basically just "Trans Europe Express".

(I'm kinda disappointed that many of these covers of mostly of the same four or five songs... no love for "electric cafe" or "pocket calculator"?)

Harry Pussy = Best Kraftwerk coverers ever! But credit due to those who stole the soullessness, barely bothering to change the song titles:

24. There was a Mortiis side project called Fata Morgana which was blatantly a Kraftwerk cover band. "Space Race" 7" has the goods.

25. Also, I liked the Austrian band Komputer.

31. Treponem Pal - The Model

Whoever was talking upthread about a Cleopatra album - I have a Japanese tribute album I got off slsk... as I recall it's no-one you've ever heard of doing less obvious Kraftwerk songs.

aldo_cowpat (aldo_cowpat), Monday, 26 January 2004 10:30 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I don't know where ny brain went as I was typing that, because Treponem Pal did 'Radioactivity' and not 'The Model'.

Curse this lack of edit! *shakes fist at sky*

Lloyd Cole did Pocket Calculator.

Treponem Pal - The Model

Did they do this as well as "Radioactivity"? Because that's the one I know (and had forgotten about until now).

Ned,

See my later post correcting my mental abberation.
