Ich war ein Roboter : Electric Drummer bei Kraftwerk by Wolfgang Flür( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in German and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als Pioniere des Elektronischen Minimalismus waren Kraftwerk in den 70er und 80er Jahren Vorbild unzähliger Bands von Depeche Mode bis OMD, The Prodigy und Fat Boy Slim. Mit Stücken wie "Autobahn", "Wir sind die Roboter" oder "Das Model" haben sie die Grenzen dessen durchbrochen, was man damals im Allgemeinen als Pop bezeichnete. 1973 fanden die Kraftwerk-Gründer Florian Schneider-Esleben und Ralf Hütter in Wolfgang Flür einen perfekten Drummer, der bis 1986 bei der Gruppe blieb. In diesem Buch, das hier inüberarbeiteter und erweiterter Fassung vorliegt, berichtet er von seiner bewegten Zeit in einer der weltweit innovativsten Bands und erzählt aus seinem Leben, nachdem er von den Robotern Abschied genommen hat

ElectriCity : elektronische Musik aus Düsseldorf 1970-1986 by Rüdiger Esch( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in German and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So wie New Orleans für Jazz und Blues gilt das Düsseldorf der 1970er und 80er als Mekka der elektronischen Popmusik. Hier schraubte "Kraftwerk" im legendären Klingklang-Studio an Klassikern wie "Autobahn" oder "Wir sind die Roboter", hier schuf "Neu!" den Motorik Beat, hier brachte "DAF" den Sequenzern das Schwitzen bei. Und je größer der Abstand, nach Kilometern wie nach Jahren, umso mythischer erscheint der Ort. Rüdiger Esch, selbst Düsseldorfer und als Mitglied von "Die Krupps" Teil der Szene, beleuchtet deren Entwicklung von den Anfängen um 1970 bis zum Ende der analogen Phase um 1986

Rez.: Kraftwerk gehörte zu den wenigen deutschen Gruppen, die die internationale Popmusik nachhaltig beeinflusst haben. W. Flür war seit der LP "Autobahn", die in die Spitze der US-Hitparade kletterte, Mitglied der Gruppe. In seiner Biografie lässt er alle Höhen und Tiefen seiner Kraftwerk-Jahre Revue passieren. Dabei geht es ihm weniger um technische Details der Kraftwerk-Musik, sondern mehr um persönliche Erlebnisse sowie Einblicke in die Prozesse innerhalb der Gruppe. Die Zeit vor und nach Kraftwerk nimmt nur einen kurzen Raum im Buch ein. In den Text sind viele Schwarz-Weiß-Fotos eingebaut. Sachlicher und informativer ist die Kraftwerk-Biografie von P. Bussy (BA 12/95, vergriffen). "Ich war ein Roboter" dürfte am ehesten Fans von Kraftwerk und elektronischer Musik interessieren. (2)
