Lentos un cuarteto de música electrónica ue transformó la música modernaTraducción de Fco Javier Barber. 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

summary Ç eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Wolfgang Flür

Grafía de Wolfgang Flür una visión al interior de los hombres máuina en auellos años optimistas y turbu. 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 apparently the fashion of the time but it s coming back to bite the ass of many of these rock folks in their old age His hostility towards his father is unpleasant and unbecoming and he promises than he delivers when he dishes on his ex colleagues or is that employers in Kraftwerk He passes along some hearsay about how they supposedly took their sound and concept from Conny Planck but it doesn t account for the wonderful music which Uwe Schmidt Se or Coconut compared to Schubert Lieder I have no doubt that Ralf H tter and Florian Schneider are not nice guys It takes a fair bit of ruthlessness to get to the top of the heap in any field It just seems that Wolfgang Fl r can t let of of any slight however slight I know from personal experience good doesn t come from that He s had his own thing going for some time now he should keep focusing on that its a better way to go

    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 bel

    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

    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 Florian's smooth and careful

    As a Kraftwerk fan I was most interested in reading about their music and the non existent group dynamics While it was a great insight to hear about the build up to when Flür was accepted into the band and the bits about their gear studio and musicianship I was less impressed by stories such as when the then 33 year old Wolfgang seduces a Hungarian minor I for one enjoyed the philosophical musings which othe
