Kraftwerk remain pop’s most enduring riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Many attempts have been made to decipher what actually goes on beyond the doors of their Kling-Klang studio and there have ever been a couple of band interviews in recent years. Yet the enigma remains in place.

Wolfgang Flur, though, is one who has cracked the code. Once a member of the band behind such classics as Trans Europe Express and Computer World, Flur even wrote a fascinating book on his Kraftwerk experiences, I Was A Robot.

These days, Flur concentrates on his Yamo music project, and it’s Yamo which will be bringing him to Dublin for the first Fabrik club night at the Tivoli on February 14th.

Others appearing at Fabrik include Soft Cell and The Grid’s Dave Ball, Irish electro pop act Neosupervital and veteran spinner Anni Hogan.
