Feel like i'm going to get a lot of abuse for this but I actually love Kraftwerk.

How this happened? I currently do a music tech course in sixth form and part of the course is duplicating their song "The Model" on any DAW. I'm using Cubase, because college is poor.

At first I hated that song and it pissed me off massively, but it grew on me and I've come to admire them as I thought about the fact they used many early synthesisers and really we're creative and different.

So yes, Kraftwerk are my guilty pleasure, I have there whole discography now, I'm a fan, please tell me there are more of you?

Pretty much any of that 70's/80's electronic music is cool,listening to Cars by Gary Numan right now.

Have you listed to stuff like "Popcorn" by the band of the same name? one hit wonder but some good old (strange to use that word with this,en?) electronic music.

Lot more of it out there,go digging around you'll be shocked at all the goodies buried in music land that sounds like the track to a sci-fi movie.

*ETA*

And more recent things like Daft Punk.

I didn't know Kraftwerk was reviled around these parts? They're absolutely amazing.

Here's a more rough-n-tumble rendition of "The Model" if anyone tries to call you a pussy:
