Late Night Crazy Music Bonus Track

Dieter Moebius was well known for his work with Krautrock innovators Cluster, but also as a collaborator and influence on Micheal Rother from Neu! and Brian Eno. Conny Plank was as much of an innovator in the electronic world, having produced amongst others Kraftwerk, Ultravox, Eurythmics, DAF, Echo & The Bunnymen, Talking Heads, Einsturzende Neubauten, Devo & Nina Hagen, as well as having had a similar influence on Eno & Bowie during their 'Low' period. Moebius & Plank worked extensively together, advancing electronic music and creating techniques that are very much in use today, their influence separately and together is immense. If u check out this 1982 track from their 'Zero Set' album called 'Pitch Control', it's hard not to hear exactly how powerful their presence in current electronic music is, it practically invents a Detroit'ish Acid Techno sound. Needless to say calling a track like this 'Pitch Control' in the 80's is also a little spooky.
