Wolfgang Flür – Ex Kraftwerk Returns with New Album
Iconic member of the classic Kraftwerk line up between 1973-1987 and author of “I Was A Robot”, Wolfgang Flur returns with the release of his new album Magazine 1 in March of this year. An album featuring collaborations with Peter Hook (Joy Division, New Order & The Light), Carl Cox, Juan Akins, Midge Ure, U96, Claudia Brucken (Propaganda). Peter Duggal, Anushka, Maps and Ramon Amezcua.
Wolfgang was member of Kraftwerk during the group’s golden era, he 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 album’s release. 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. 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!
