Our series of articles curated by Kevin 'The Bug' Martin continues with a Baker's Dozen from Mika Vainio, solo artist and former member of Pansonic. He tells us about how the likes of Suicide, Neubauten, the Alex Harvey Band, King Crimson and more soundtracked a life of working in slaughterhouses and vegetarian restaurants


Kraftwerk - Radio-Activity
I always found Radio-Activity to be a bit of a diversion from their other work.

MV: It's in between their earlier material and what came after. It's hard for me to choose what would be my favourite Kraftwerk album, but maybe in the end this is the one. I like a lot of the sounds they are using on that album and the sound world in general.
