Kraftwerk I Was a Robot

'Kraftwerk yo fui un robot' es una edición actualizada con fotografías inéditas de la biografía de. You cannot expect Wolfgang to be objective in his autobiography No one can ever write the objective truth about KraftwerkThe first part offers an interesting insight into the daily life of the group members and some of Wolfgang s anecdotes about his own misfortunes are absolutely hilarious It is embellished with occasional hyperboles for the sake of the story and the styleThe second part however is bitter and extremely hard to digest for hardcore Kraftwerk fansNone of us will ever know whether Wolfgang s accusations and insights are true It is his version of the story written probably as a therapy for coping with all the lawsuits and broken dreams if you allow me to be a bit sentimentalIf you like Wolfgang read it If you like Kraftwerk you will like the first partI would like to see the whole Kraftwerk story from Karl s point of view though

Un cuarteto de música electrónica ue transformó la música modernaTraducción de Fco Javier Barbero. Several times in the book the author has the gall to tell us that he s learnt to tell his story not on this evidence he hasn t A decent editor would crop a hundred pages out of this with no real effort involved and no hardship to the book Certainly the adverts for the one flop album Yamu stage of his career can go as they re painful to read and re read and re read as he often won t shut up about it But what I was really here for was the life story of an ex Kraftwerk member and his reflections on that And I got them in spades with the addition of a heck of a lot sperm and sex than I thought to expectYou don t get a straightforward diary of his time with the band the book is concerned with the fall out of the albums and the touring thereof rather than their creation The Radioactivity album is written in about three lines And of course you get a lot about the fact the remaining two members of KW once Wolfie and Karl had left tried to suppress the book although from my reading of this only the barest few final pages are new and a lot managed to get in the English translation that didn t make the original redacted German volumeAnd that will remain an issue with the book being self referential and discussing the problems it made just as much as those Ralf and Florian OK Ralf ever caused Yes the book offers implied reasons why none of the pre Autobahn albums have ever been re released because they stiffed Conny Plank the producer But Wolfie is also very snide calling the current touring set up Kraftwerk Mark III er mate they were an acoustic rock hippy shit band before you so you joined for Mark II and have in one snide numeration belittled everyone that replaced you Nice going And while you re at it try and combine your comment that sex needs a long connection before it happens with the girl that almost raped you in a Hollywood hotel shower about which you never batted an eyelid in complaint And that comment about still having hair is patheticDon t get me wrong this is an important document and a great telling of how he saw his time in the band where you can see the end coming due to his being paid a flat wage and no royalties from a mile off even if the actual conclusion relies on push bikes a lot than the novitiate may have expected But it s not a well written book at all and really does need the red pencil dragged through it at times Also my netgalley had upwards of dozens of typos which is rum for a text that s mostly twenty ish years old not only the usual printing errors but dislocating both OMD and Ischia into the wrong parts of their respective countries

    I thought the Spacemen 3 biography was bad but this makes it look like high literature I dislike the ‘so bad it’s good’ cliché but this really is so awful in it’s hilarious exhaustive badness that it does almost come out the other side The trashiness is so extreme that at times I had to stop and uestion whether the whole thing is a massive pisstake but after much contemplation I have to conclude the author really does believe what

    An interesting perspective from the inside on a band that has thrown up a famously opaue facade for the last 35 years You can't help but sense that Flur has a serious axe to grind especially with Ralf Hutter so as entertaining as some of his recollections are I think that factually you have to take them with a grain of salt I'm s

    When I started this book I thought I had met my new best friend What a wonderful philosophy of life what a wise man emerged from his experiences However the time I spent with him the less I liked this gentleman He ultimately comes across as a rather spiteful insecure man His stories of sexual conuest which he insists are just documentation come across as boasting as they accumulate sex with a minor is nothing to boast about it was apparen

    So after reading this book what can I tell you about Kraftwerk that I didn't know before?Ralf Florian are complete cunts who think the band revolves around them alone they stole intellectual property from Wolfgang by patenting the drumpad he invented in the US under their name then Ralf made things worse by having Karl Wolfgang's names removed from re issues of old Kraftwerk albums that's illegal by the way Ralf you total wankerExcellent b
