Australia's got crazy Kraftwerk fans
Wed 19th May, 2010 Newsin
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!
