FABRIK Tivoli, Dublin Thurs 10pm ¤15/¤12 01-4544472 Fabrik have pulled out all the stops for their Valentine’s night debut in Dublin with an intriguing bill of old and new electronic gems.
Former Kraftwerker Wolfgang Flur (left) is the main draw. Flur left the Kling Klang fold in 1987 and wrote a very revealing tome, I Was A Robot, about his time with the Dusseldorf dons. His former pals Ralf Hutter and Florian Schneider were not very happy about some of these revelations .
In more recent years, Flur has collaborated with Mouse On Mars and Pizzicato 5, made music as Yamo and spun tech-house and electro in various clubs. Fabrik’s other guests include Dave Bell, the Soft Cell and The Grid man who has also worked with Kylie, The B-52s and Portishead; veteran spinner (and one-time Marc Almond accomplice) Anni Hogan; and local electro-pop mischief-makers Neosupervital.
