Wolfgang Flur – Friday April 2022

2nd confirmed show for 2022 features Wolfgang Flur who was a member of the classic Kraftwerk line up between 1973-1987 and author of “I Was A Robot”.

A member of Kraftwerk during the group’s golden era, Wolfgang Flür was the band’s electronic percussionist from 1973 to 1987.

Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Flür became the third member of the band in 1973, replacing a drum machine. He was a member of the group from their international breakthrough with the album Autobahn (1974) and remained as they experimented with proto techno on albums such as Trans-Europe Express (1977) and Computer World (1981).

Frustrated with the half-a-decade it took to produce Electric Cafe (1986), he left the band after the LP’s release — it wouldn’t be until a 2009 reissue that Flür received an artist credit on the album. In 1997, he launched his solo career under the name Yamo and released Time Pie, an album that featured work with the experimental duo Mouse on Mars.

 In 2000, he published his memoir I Was a Robot, but the book was pulled momentarily, and re-released with revisions after a lawsuit from the remaining members of Kraftwerk.

A 12″ single named after the book appeared in 2004, and it was included on the 2015 release Eloquence: Total Works, a collection of unreleased Flür tracks dating back to 2002.

His live performance will include the true analogue influences from the early electronic movement, whilst showcasing his modern introductions of pop, techno, and soundtrack sounds. Dedicated fans and pure electronic appreciators will be truly entertained!

Tickets available on line from SEE, Ticketweb etc.
