Show some feeling and respect for Kraftwerk’s Electric Cafe—released on December 16th, 1986, the electronic music pioneers’ ninth studio album had its title track famously used for Mike Myers’s fictional West German Television show Sprockets, that was featured as a reoccurring SNL sketch. The album’s original title was “Techno Pop”, which was in itself derived from the idea originally to call the record Technicolor.
Two singles were released from the album, “Musique Non-Stop” and “The Telephone Call“, both having their own music videos, but with the former featuring at the time groundbreaking 3D facial animation.
