Kraftwerk – The Artist

Kraftwerk (German: for “power station”) is a German band formed in Düsseldorf in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. Widely considered to be innovators and pioneers of electronic music, they were among the first successful acts to popularise the genre. The group began as part of West Germany’s experimental krautrock scene in the early 1970s before fully embracing electronic instrumentation, including synthesisers, drum machines, vocoders, and home-made experimental musical instruments. On commercially successful albums such as Autobahn (1974), Trans-Europe Express (1977), and The Man-Machine (1978), Kraftwerk developed a self-described “robot pop” style that combined electronic music with pop melodies, sparse arrangements, and repetitive rhythms, while adopting a stylised image including matching suits.

Showroom Dummies – The Song

Showroom Dummies was written by Ralf Hutter and performed by Kraftwerk. It was taken from their sixth studio album Trans-Europe Express. 

Babies Dummy / Pacifier – The Shape

Modelled into a dummy (British English and Australian English) or pacifier (American English), also known as a binky, soother (Canadian English), teether or Dodie. A dummy is a rubber, plastic or silicone nipple given to an infant to suck upon. In its standard appearance it has a teat, mouth shield, and handle. The mouth shield and/or the handle is large enough to avoid the danger of the child choking on it or swallowing it.
