Craft work

From The Guardian's list of key events in dance music's history:
"The germinating moment for British dance music occurred, strangely, in a 1975 edition of Tomorrow's World, which featured four young Germans dressed like geography teachers, apparently playing camping stoves with wired-up knitting needles."
Kraftwerk is one of the seminal bands I know more by name than by their music, so I was surprised to learn of the importance of knitting needles in their art. You can see a little of what's been written about here.
