Stripped - Depeche Mode and Analogue Solutions Oberkorn step sequencer

I was reading Stripped in bed and nearly spilled hot Ovaltine all over myself when I read this "Further indication of Depeche Mode’s impact on popular music was indirectly shown when Analogue Solutions UK Ltd, a British manufacturer of new-generation analogue synthesisers and music accessories, named their Oberkorn analogue sequencer after the B-side, ‘Oberkorn (It’s A Small Town)’ (the quirky instrumental flip to ‘The Meaning Of Love’). Its operating manual even opens with the words “Oberkorn (It’s Not A Small Sequencer)!” 
According to Analogue Solutions’ manager, Tom Carpenter, “The Oberkorn is my ideal analogue sequencer. I wanted it to have a weird name. I thought it would be interesting to see how many people connected its name to Depeche Mode. They have had a huge influence on my musical tastes and career. Amongst a few other electronic bands, they are what started my interest in music and electronic instruments. ‘What a fitting tribute,’ I thought, ‘to name one of my creations after my all-time favourite musicians!’”

Bob Moog and some other bloke

This is the day I met Bob Moog, back when he was alive. He was selling signed photo's of himself. Wish I'd bought one - it would be worth some money now!!

Florian from Kratwerk using Vostok synth

The day I met Florian Schneider from Kraftwerk. Can't remember the year - maybe around 2003 - at the Frankfurt music show. We had a good chat (he mostly talked about cycling) and he kindly posed with the Analogue Solutions Vostok synth that was on display. He has since bought various AS gear, including the Europa sequencer. Have seen him at the show in subsequent years.
