No tickets for Kraftwerk at the Tate then? Me neither. But since I've been digging about in Deutsche Elektronische Musik all week, when not struck down by a work-cancelling (money losing!) man flu, maybe I can offer some solace with this excellent slab of early 80s German synth music: bouncy - definitely something you could do your Joanne and Susan to. Or pop in the car cassette after your Düsseldorf boys as you drive moodily West.
E.M.A.K is Elektronische Musik Aus Köln. Natürlich!
E.M.A.K - 'Filmmusik' (1982)
(I've a guvnors meeting at the school tonight till 6pm. It's a bloody outrage. Start without me).
