yeah was hoping it was gonna be aphex coz i still haven't seen him live. bit of a let down alright, but still, those visuals on the video up on the block forum look fairly class and any ex member of kraftwerk must know what he's up to.

dunno. Wolfgang Fleur (ex kraftwerk) was at leechrum and he was distinctly average. don't get me wrong i love kraftwerk, but i think it's definitely a case of the sum being more than the parts. maybe this guy will prove me wrong...

i wonder who they were REALLY trying to get for that slot...

yeah, though looking at the line-up it was bout the only one they could keep secret. Having Red Snapper or Amon Tobin as your secret headliner would have been even more ho-hum, and UR was too big a name (for selling tickets) to not put up.

I didn't really expect the secret headliner to be anything too exciting really. Bout the only 2 acts that would have got me excited would be Kraftwerk or Model 500.
There's more than enough quality stuff on as it is anyways.
