Event details

Wolfgang Flür (born 17 July 1947) is a German musician, formerly a member of the electronic group Kraftwerk[1] from 1973 to 1987, playing electronic percussion. Flür claims that he also invented the group's electric drums used throughout the 1970s. However, patent records dispute this citing Florian Schneider and Ralf Hütter as the creators.

Previously he had played an acoustic drum kit in the Düsseldorf 1960s band The Spirits of Sound. Guitarist Michael Rother was also a member of The Spirits of Sound, later forming Neu! with then Kraftwerk drummer Klaus Dinger.

In 1997, Flür founded Yamo, which released an album Time Pie, a collaboration with Mouse on Mars. Flür's next release, the 12" and remixes of I Was A Robot, climbed to number 6 in the German club charts. Collaborations with Pizzicato Five and Der Plan founding member Pyrolator have been announced, and the lyrics to the song "Greed" are in Flür's autobiography, but this material remains unreleased.
