Kraftwerk @ 9:30 Club, Washington, DC on Friday, April 4, 2014 (photographed by Peter Hutchins on Flickr)
In 1988 Japanese magazine “Silverstar Club" sent Florian Schneider of Kraftwerk a tape with questions for an interview. Florian returned it with answers in tweaked voices, and the interview was published in a written format. Ten years later (1998) this recording was released as an extra together with a magazine.
PS. The last sentence sampled in Japanese: “WATASHI NO DENWABANGOU WA HIMIchiteimimi [HIMITSU] DESU.”means “My telephone number is secret.”!

Aw, thank you, that’s really kind! :)
Do you mean the same interview where Ralf urges not to look for intelligent information on internet? London, 2009, illustrated with a nice picture from Sydney.
And while my specialty does not let me satisfy your ambitions of being confirmed non-crazy, I can confirm that the interview with Eurovision and kittens - oui, it exists. Here’s the link.
PS. I have no superior search system than anyone, and currently it’s tagged “interview”. If anyone has ideas what tags or pages to add to make the process more convenient, please drop me a note, and I’ll try to make it work.
