Kraftwerk: I Was a Robot

By Wolfgang Flür

  • Release Date: 2012-01-19
  • Genre: Musique


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 redefined pop music. When they split up in the early 1980s, founding member Wolfgang Flü r discovered his name dropped from album credits and the drum machine of his own invention being patented by his bandmates. Kraftwerk: I Was a Robot documents 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.
