Their studio is called Kling Klang, they once used to cycle long-distance to their tour dates and their latest shows include the use od 3D graphics (and glasses!). The last remaining original member of Kraftwerk in this lengthy interview talks about band mythology, the effect of technology on human interaction and what's next in the works for the band.
Cool Hutter quote: "[The telephone was] an antiquity - you never know who is calling, there is no image, it is an outmoded product that constantly disrupts work... That was the 70s and 80s, [but] it still stands. You'd be polite, and pick up, and say 'Hello' and be surprised at what was at the other end of the line, maybe directing your future for the next minutes, hours, days. That's why in the studio we never have telephones."
