Following the death of Kraftwerk's Florian Schneider I was thinking about his band's overlap wth British comedy. In fact i was thinking about it before he died.

It is not the first time Reeves has used them in his art - he has also featured a picture of them on an antler. But the most famous comedy homage to the band comes from Bill Bailey, who did his tribute big-style in his Part Troll enormodome show.
