Kraftwerk By Numbers…

What happens when Kraftwerk’s ‘Numbers’ comes on in the club? You get in line and wait your turn to bust a move of course…

This has been doing the rounds on the internet for quite a while, but it never fails to entertain. The New Dance Show was a series that aired on local channel WGPR-TV 62 in Detroit (where else) in the late 80s and early 90s, borrowing heavily from its predecessor, The Scene, which spanned the 70s and 80s. The show has been widely celebrated as having put early Detroit techno on the map (at least on TV) and this clip, from 1991, shows why.

Why Ralf Hütter and the boys haven’t signed up the diva at 2.21 as their backing dancer is beyond me…

Kudos to Detroit-based Youtuber Caprice87 for sharing this in the first place, not to mention the epic New Dance Show intro, set to Joey Beltram’s Energy Flash – they don’t make TV like this any more…
