Thread: NEW, YOUNG KRAFTWERK MEMBER???? NO FLORIAN???

  1. #1

    Default NEW, YOUNG KRAFTWERK MEMBER???? NO FLORIAN???

    http://www.kraftwerk.hu/antenna

    I just received word that Florian Schneider was missing from tonight's show at Myth in Minneapolis, and was replaced by someone appearing to be in their late 20's.

    I thought that maybe he was just ill, but my source says that this new member even has his own robot head!!!!

    He went on to state that there were no new songs perfomed, but that they were heavily reworked, and that there were some technical flubs here and there.

    WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    according to wikipedia

    On March 13, 2008, it was announced that Kraftwerk will play three shows in US cities Minneapolis, Milwaukee, and Denver prior to the date at Coachella.[27]
    More dates have yet to be added. Florian Schneider is not included in the lineup of the 2008 US tour as he strongly apposes the George Bush administration. The lineup consist of Ralf Hutter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert, and an unknown fourth member who appears to be in his late twenties.

    The release of The Catalogue box set is still awaiting confirmation, in addition to any new studio material.

    The group will celebrate its fortieth anniversary in 2010.

    why would hating george bush have anything to do with touring?

    I don't believe it until the band itself says that. Because I have also read that Florian just doesn't like touring in general. I have a feeling he isnt playing simply because he doesn't want to.

    many artists don't come to the US because of the Bush administration.

    I'm really pissed that Florian isn't going to be there. It's like taking away half the show.

    Just when you think it's smooth sailing for the rest of his term, and he can't fuck anything else up...

    Look, I understand Florian is an important founding member of Kraftwerk. But this just means someone else will push buttons and you will be looking at a younger German guy. The music won't change. The stage show won't change. This isn't like The Verve replacing Richard Ashcroft or something.

    I think the Bush thing is phony....it doesn't appear on Wikipedia anymore.

    Probably some stupid joke....then again, you know how Wiki users can be sometimes.

    It appears to be that Florian was out for just this one gig in MN; hopefully, he'll be back, but we'll have to wait and see.

    This does upset me. I respect Florian. But I also think that Coachella should not have booked them without him. Is really happening?

    Oh well, fewer conflicts I guess.

    You would skip Kraftwerk because Florian won't be up there wearing a glow in the dark wire suit and pushing laptop buttons? I honestly don't understand. Nothing about the sound will be changed. You can close your eyes and fucking imagine him up there. This is the band that has robots play a fucking song. Don't be pathetic.

    why would they book them then? if it's all about pushing buttons?

    You are missing the point. It is about the sound, not the means used to create it.
