Born in 1947 in post-war Germany, Wolfgang Flür made his name in the band Kraftwerk. The last time I met him was in 1997 when he released his first post-Kraftwerk album with his band Yamo. His latest album, Magazine 1, is a masterpiece, a mixture of old and new, a commentary of today's world from Flür's perspective. In the first part of this two-part interview, we talk about his own personal history, about his plea to pacifism in Say No! through the Wolfgang Borchert poem of the same name, and the track Birmingham, the home base of his main collaborator on this album, Peter Duggal.
