By Wolfgang Flür
Wolfgang Flür was a vital cog in the Kraftwerk machine, galvanising the group’s electric drum sound throughout the 1970’s and propelling the rhythmic backbone of iconic albums such as Autobahn and Electric Café.
I Was A Robot is a detailed, evocative account, written in Flür’s no-nonsense style. It takes us from his youth into the band’s formation and touring of their influential works, laying bare the acrimonious break-up and court cases that later followed. This book is the final word on Kraftwerk, their continued influence and what it felt like to be a Man-Machine.
”This is a first-hand account of human life inside the robot factory. A world that I could barely have imagined as a 16-year-old Kraftwerk fan stranded in a suburb on the wrong side of the river from Liverpool. A window into a world that I could never have imagined.” Andy McCluskey, OMD
”Kraftwerk is a myth. Wolfgang is for real. Thus handsome elder statesman of Electronic Music gives a lot of useful inside information about the Men-Machines.” Rudi Esch, ELECRI_CITY
