“The Electro Legend Interviews” - Aphex Twin, Gary Numan, The Prodigy’s Liam Howlett, Vince Clarke, Kraftwerk’s WolfgangFlür, Moby, Hot Chip, Alec Empire and Ultravox’s Midge Ure all discuss their lives, their music and their ideas in this rather intriguing new ebook based on the archives of “Computer Music and Future Music” magazine.
This ebook consists of the various interviews that these musicians had with this magazine over the whole period of Electro Music, so we have Liam Howlett of Prodigy telling us about the Rave scene when they started and how they plan to keep on going… As he says “When rave dies there are always going to be people who will still want to dance, so as long as we keep coming out with original songs we’ll still be around…”
Or as Midge Ure of Ultravox put it, “In those early days, a lot of musicians saw synths as electronic guitars. We just started going bang-bang-bang. Suddenly, you got this blast of unearthly noise and it changed the musical landscape.”
