Overall I'm not a R fan, but does Kid A and that recent one with the freebusiness go ahead?

Possibly, but the Kr were for me, w/ Autobahn, and that first double album, so....

and if you want to vote R, go right ahead, don't mind them!

mark e, Friday, 9 January 2009 14:25 (twelve years ago) link

Kraftwerk was a big influence on Radiohead, and are the more 'classic' band - although Radiohead are pretty classic - so most will probably say Kraftwerk. In the end I have to go with the band that I listen to a *lot* more and have a lot of great memories over the past 15 years associated with - Radiohead.

In defense of Radiohead, except for one or two songs they never sang about being robots. MAYBE that could be interesting if it's the '40's and you're down with the modernism avant garde or something. Otherwise robots are our bitches, nobody cares what they have to say. But anyway I voted Kraftwerk.

Ha!

While I'm sure more of it is hatred toward the idea of radiohead than anything to do with their music, I don't get the animosity towards Radiohead from here, hence the idea that ILM would have a sweeping vote for Radiohead over Kraftwerk is laughable. They're not Kraftwerk, though, that can be said,

I like them both a lot. I don't know who I would ever vote over Kraftwerk, though. (not even Can!)

I really really like Radiohead a lot. But Kraftwerk seem like maybe on of a handful of the really important artists of the 20th century, up there with Chuck Berry, Miles, James Brown, etc.

I am voting on who I would rather listen to. only music crits care about "influence" and "importance".

xpost and yeah, # of times listened is probably the best gauge available. anything else is just frontin' imo.

They've sometimes got a childlike quality about them. Which you certainly could not say about Radiohead!

No Surprises, musically at least

O Supermanchiros (blueski), Tuesday, 10 February 2009 14:04 (eleven years ago) link

I think Radiohead is plenty childlike but more like the stuff of children's nightmares. thom yorke's doom and gloom (especially around kid a and amnesiac) always felt a bit like a ten-year-old confronting the idea of death for the first time.

Disco/Very (Roz), Tuesday, 10 February 2009 14:05 (eleven years ago) link

I would imagine this totally comes down to when and what you hear. My first Kraftwerk exposure was "Trans-Europe Express" in my mid-teens and I certainly got THAT right away, but I'm not sure I would have picked up on, say, "The Looking Glass" the same way.

Of course, at that point I was already familiar with any number TEE-derived bass & electro beats.
