The Kraftwerk machine in 2012 is proving to be an unbelievable force. They've been doing a series of residencies under the name Kraftwerk-Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8, and this time around they're setting up camp in the Tate Modern Museum. Before they even got there, they shut the place down: tickets went on sale today, and demand was so overwhelming that it slowed down the Tate's web site so much that it was unusable. According to FactMag, "the Tate’s site slowed to a halt within half an hour, and a phoneline number was offered as an alternative via the Tate’s Twitter."

The Kraftwerk-Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 shows center around the idea that the band performs on album a night (in full): Autobahn, Radio-Aktivität, Trans-Europe Express, Die Mensch-Maschine, Computerwelt, Techno Pop, The Mix and Tour de France Soundtracks. They set up shop earlier this year at at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in April. Heavy conceptual art for heavy conceptual times.

Ceck out the band playing the aptly titled "Spacelab," above.
