Wolfgang Flur, he was a robot


Dublin hosts a new night in the Tivoli Theatre called Fabrik, and it just might be worth sticking Feb 14th in your diary – especially if you’re a fan of all things electro and pop. Ex-Kraftwerk member, Wolfgang Flur is headlining a bill that contains local electropop maestro’s Neosupervital (live set), and dj sets from Anni Hogan and Dave Ball (Soft Cell/The Grid). Flur was instrumental in many classic Kraftwerk recordings, and contributed significantly to the creation of their legendary studio, Kling Klang. Flur now records under the Yamo moniker, and was also the author of the contentious Kraftwerk autobiography, I Was A Robot.

Tickets are €12 in advance, from www.tivoli.ie or www.tickets.ie

I’ve never forgiven myself for missing those Kraftwerk shows in The Olympia, but I did make up for it by catching them at the Electric Picnic a few years ago. I completely lost my mind at the gig, it was amazing. I’m a little bit sketchy on the exact details, but I lost my voice for two days so it’s safe to say I played a blinder! I do recall this being a particular favourite on the night though – Radioactivity, taken from the Kraftwerk DVD, Minimum-Maximum.

Current mood: Superbowl Sunday!!

Current listening: British Sea Power – Do You Like Rock Music?

  1. Damn it. I’d love to see that! There’s a great bit in his book when he compares the Australian customs officials to Nazis.

  3. I’m not surprised you brought that up Mr Thought!

    Friendchip, there’s still 2 tickets going in the comp if you can answer that very simple question in the post.
