Flür on Kraftwerk

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC -

“Ob­jec­tively, I think Com­puter World was Kraftwerk at their peak, the best. For me, it’s the most tech­ni­cal and specif­i­cally fu­tur­is­tic record. I mean, when it first came out [in 1981], no one had re­ally thought about home com­put­ers. It had bril­liant melodies – ad­mit­tedly not as ro­man­tic as those on Trans-Europe Ex­press, which is my per­sonal favourite.

Tour de France? That was just okay. Café Elec­tric? As we say in Ger­many, it was cold cof­fee. It was not warm in my heart.

But, you know, deep down I’m a pop mu­sic fan. I re­ally like Lady Gaga’s song Pa­parazzi. How bril­liant is that? And I love Sh­eryl Crow’s songs.

“I es­pe­cially like fe­male voices in pop­mu­sic.”
