Kraftwerk - Radio-Activity

I could have picked another Kraftwerk album but this was the first. Originally, I saw Kraftwerk in a hip-hop documentary and I laughed, I thought ‘such a funny band!’ I couldn’t really understand why Afrika Bambaata was so influenced by them! But now it makes sense. I think my favourite album is Trans-Europe Express, but Radio-Activity was the first. I got it in an antiques shop at this hypermarket we went to with my family to get groceries. It was the first one, that’s why it’s on the list.
