Review of Wolfgang Flur (Ex-Kraftwerk) + B-Movie

B-Movie were excellent and friendly.
Wolfgang Flur was arrogant.

Review of Wolfgang Flur (Ex-Kraftwerk) + B-Movie

I travelled down from Chesterfield really to see B- Movie as I'm a B- movie fan not Wolfgang Flur...so only watched B- movie who were superb astonishingly atmospheric, Steve Hovingtons vocals glided effortlessly through the array of songs old and new... Impressive and left me delighted.
I found the venue as I imagined it to be, slightly dark with a rocky feel about it, I had a couple of beers before the concert in the upstairs bar, no complaints about the beer and price was reasonable. The down stairs concert room is intimate not oversized. There is a complaint though, the food for sale, limited to pizzas only, a fiver for a large pizza box sadly upon opening the box I found a small pizza less than half the size of the box it's served in, the taste.... Hmmm I would imagine the box would taste better.

Great night of electronica and nostalgia. It was my first visit to the Flapper and the Seventh Wave Festival and I was not disappointed I remembered B- Movie from my youth and it was lovely to see them eventually and they mingled with the crowd later a smashing band. First we had Ten Ten a one man wave of electronic grooves excellent. Wolfgang Flur was awesome great video show to accompany the music to. I shall return!

Well it's Friday 11th November 2016 and i'm off to The Flapper in Birmingham. Its day after last nights live event at The Flapper. Now having visited it, it is an ideal music venue for getting up & close to artists. The venue is easily to find despite being tooked away down a lane near a canal and there's plenty of car parking facilites situated nearby. It was my first time to The Flapper, I must admit I wasn't too sure what to expect but I was pleasantly suprised, a warm welcome by staff, a cosy venue and a really lovely atmosphere too.

I have been trying to see B-Movie for near on 35+ years but last nights energetic performance playing to a sell out crowd was just so good. I not just saying that becuase I have waited so long to see them play live but geniuenly, these four guys put on a note worthly live gig last night. The sound from the amps/PA was awesome, best that i've heard at a gig (..well done & cheers to the sound & lights chaps for that). A good mix of songs by B-Movie; single releases, classic album tracks and new material as well some rarer songs too. Although personally I would have loved more songs from the lads like 'T'rash & Mystrey', 'Man On A Threshold', 'Forever Running' or the very excellent 'So Far Away'. B-Movie took to the stage shortly after 8.15pm following an ambient set, which i believe was performed byTen:Ten.

B-Movie started with ' Feeling Gothic' from their new album ' Climate of Fear' and then preceeded to play songs almost in chronogical order with brief narratives from lead singer and principle song writer, Steve Hovington. Some of the gems from their setlist featured 'Moles', 'A Letter From AFar', 'Polar Opposites', 'Marilyn Dreams', and current new material 'Another False Dawn' & 'Ghost Land' with B-Movie finishing off their set with their best known and loved songs, 'No-where Girl' & the aptly named, 'Remembrance Day' which had the everyone dancing & singalong that left the audience wanting more. If you haven't seen or heard of B-Movie before, then why not!

The headline act last night was Wolfgang Flur. What can i say about a man who has inspired so many artists & been so influencial musically. Wolfgang Flur , ex Kraftwerk percussionist and undinieably a true pioneer of electrionc muisc being at the very fore front of this genre which i think would be correct to say, that Wolfgang and his fellow Kraftwerk band members created. This icon of Electronica did not disappoint. I feel lucky to have been there last night and been in the presence of a great master musician, Wolfgangs performance is something I shall rememeber forever.

All in all, a terriffic venue and I for one, have a return visit to The Flapper pencilled in! Thanks must be given to the organisers of the event, Thank You for a truely wonderful night.
