Ts the group's alternately inspiring and bitter story from its unsteady beginnings through worldwide fame to the legal battle in a Hamburg court that vindicated the author but left lasting scars on all Color photographs are included 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

Kraftwerk I Was a Robot

Fatboy Slim the Prodigy the Chemical Brothers these are just a few of the major names in contemporary dance culture whose work owes a huge debt to Kraftwerk Pioneers of electronic minimalism in the 60s 70s and 80s Kraftwerk redefine 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

    Freuently hilarious in the way that it lingers on the things you don't necessarily want to know like the long passage when Wolfgang has just met Ralf and Florian with a view to being in the band and Florian drives them from the pub to the studio and Wolfgang describes the exact route street by street and admires

    For me this was a no brainer to readI love Kraftwerk and as information about the band is hard to find especially from the band and those close to the band it had to be readIts surprising the image of the band does not prepare you for the fact that the band especially at the beginning of the band are normal young men At
