How much of an influence was Bowie's 'Berlin period' on your work?
That was about the last time I liked Bowie, actually, that particular period. I thought he did some great stuff. And it was after that, he kind of lost it .... to me anyway. I wouldn't dare to criticise him. But musically he did not influence me, not really. When I got into electronics, the only electronic thing he had done really was the B-side of Low. It was almost classical, very long doomy pieces. At the time I was trying to write three-minute pop songs, so I looked more towards Ultravox, a little bit of Kraftwerk and Daniel Miller.
