8-Bit Operators: The Music of Kraftwerk (Receptor/EMI)

Okay, this is for those who remember playing Frogger and being thrilled by the new technology. This collection is of people using vintage video game systems to play the music of electro-pioneers Kraftwerk, which does make some kind of bent sense.

It is kinda lo-fi fun, especially if you know Kraftwerk's extensive catalogue.

Although Autobahn isn't here there are a lot of other brittle, bleeping and retro-familiar sounds about.

Back to the future.
