Cabaret Voltaire quote source

Does anyone know where the source of this quote from Cabaret Voltaire comes from?

Any help would be appreciated.

richard h kirk words

"As far as we were concerned at that time anyone who was a drummer wouldn't hold down just a pulse. They wanted to play like Emerson Lake and Palmer, horrible progressive music. We saw these little drum machines which then were only used by people doing the Working Men's Clubs. We thought they were perfect for us and we just put it through an echo. They're all in there (indicates the store-room). We bought the first one which was a Farfisa that I'd actually seen on the inside of the first Kraftwerk album. Then we got a Selmer which was amazing because it could do drum rolls. None of these were programmable, it had three different varieties, a drum roll every four bars or every eight or whatever. It was the one we used on "Nag Nag Nag". It had quite a hard sound whereas the other one was a bit wishy washy. Then I think we bought one off A Certain Ratio, an Electro Harmonix; it was good, it had a separate bass drum output. The bass drum was very similar to the 808 bass drum. We've never thrown any of it away. I'm still sampling bits and pieces off these old boxes."

Greetings Alan R,

Can't say I've heard of that quote before. Maybe on Google?
