The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers - just a few of the major names in today's dance culture whose work owes a huge debt to Kraftwerk. Pioneers in the 70s and 80s of electronic minimalism, Kraftwerk broke through the boundaries of what was generally accepted as pop. Kraftwerk: I Was a Robot is the full insider's story of this legendary act, as told by the band's original drummer. From their early days in Dusseldorf to the band's implosion in the 80s and beyond, Wolfgang Flur's book is the definitive document of the Man Machine, a synth-driven quartet who transformed the face of modern music.
