@ YouTube, from when they still had long hair—Ruckzuck

), a 1971 performance where the line-up is Florian with Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother, later of NEU!
; Heavy Metal Kids
(audio only), also from 1971; and a lovely version of Tanzmusik
The band are more recognisable in a snippet from Autobahn

in 1975. Bonus tracks: Silver Forest
by Ralf & Florian’s pre-Kraftwerk outfit Organisation
; and Organisation’s rendition of Ruckzuck
