Australia's got crazy Kraftwerk fans

Image for Australia's got crazy Kraftwerk fans

Reality TV has contributed much to the dance music community, from giving Tila Tequila an outlet to spread her crazy, to turning Paul Oakenfold into a Hollywood crime-stopper, and potentially even leading our own Stafford Brothers to infamy. Well, we can add another treasured achievement to that list, as barrel-bottom scraping TV contest Australia’s Got Talent has catapulted a borderline crazy computer geek to notoriety with his Kraftwerk-ripping on-air performance.

The electro-aping performance was brought to our attention this morning after Australia’s Got Talent aired its second ‘semi final’ last night featuring of course the, uh, talented Elvi, performing his own composition I’m A Computer complete with a back-up performance that can’t decide if it wants to be jacking Kraftwerk’s fabled live show, a rejected Matrix sequel or “Tron guy” dress up party.

You can watch the performance for yourself in the clip below. On first watch we originally thought, ‘Oh wow, Muscles looks like shit these days!”, but having watched it an obsessive five more times we’ve come to think of it as the most awesomely unlistenable acid-glitch track in existence.

We reckon Elvi should definitely win the major prize. We’re not sure what that prize is but we’ll assume the winner gets to be hog-tied in Kyle Sandilands’ pleasure dungeon for a week. Yew!

Although it is definitely a rip off of Kraftwerk, that guy is awesome. The hosts on that show are complete arse holes. If its not mainstream - its not good and we'll make fun of you; you could tell the guy thought the same thing.

i agree with tyleri23, their definite assholes, but its a mainstream competition. i dont think brian has anything to make fun of after his latest single. Mainstream = shitc###s, both in judges and audience.

please everyone part with their 55 cents and vote for Elvi and put him on the road to more successful careers than the judges. It can't be that hard

I'm as anti-Sandilands' as anyone but this is just bad. He was surely just taking the piss, as you would if you were a contestant on this show. The people who go on this show are as bad as the people who run it.
