"Mechanical Turk" would be an interesting name for a Krautrock outfit, considering that "Turk" is something of a slur in Germany.

Of course many non-Germans ignorantly assume that the "Krautrock" itself is a derogatory term, which it really is not. In fact if you are only familiar with later-period Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk, I encourage you to seek out their earlier stuff.

I'd be willing to bet there was an establised band called "Mechanical Turk" years ago. I will not Google it for fear of finding out it's true.
