Countdown to exclusive electro-pop extravaganza
It’s just five weeks until Dyko, featuring Wolfgang Flür (ex-Kraftwerk), play their UK debut gig, which is also a one-off show, making it a really hot ticket.
Roll on Friday, 13 June: it’s going to be a very lucky day for anybody at the unmissable wombatwombat/Muzica-hosted occasion at Norwich Arts Centre where gig-goers will be indulged in Dyko’s sensational electronica/pop-punk/new wave sound and vision extravaganza that continually wows crowds all around the world.
Modelled on the Bauhaus concept of the "artist as a technician", Dyko musically and visually reflect their fascination with Teutonic everyday life and culture, including artistic processing of German language videos from the 1970s.
John Barrie Dyke and Christofer Jost, aka Dyko – an Australian/German duo of synthi-pop devotees – are profoundly inspired by bands/artists such as Kraftwerk, The Human League, David Bowie, Depeche Mode and Iggy Pop.
Equally inspirational, Dyko’s music has provided enough motivation for Wolfgang Flür to pick up his sticks and play live e-drums for the first time since 1987 when he left what is widely regarded as the classic incarnation of Kraftwerk. Apart from collaborating at gigs – which have recently included a version of the Kraftwerk masterpiece Autobahn – Dyko and Wolfgang are working on a joint studio project.
Support in the auditorium comes from two Norwich-based acts: the electro-pop singer/songwriter duo Vista – which takes its cue from Saint Etienne, Pet Shop Boys, Massive Attack and New Order – and the electro/down-tempo/nu-jazz/soul sounds of Rice ‘n’ Beans, a new project from production maestro Paul Cullen of Taxi.
Plus, in the bar, Howlback Hum presents a fine bill of electronica-influenced local talent starring Checkout Girls, Hoofus, The Owl Box, Sukoshi and True Adventures.
With a strictly limited number of tickets available for this exclusive evening of cutting-edge electro-music and visuals, the advice is to buy now and avoid missing out one of the most exciting gigs of the year. Priced at £15 in advance – from NAC box office (01603 660352), Soundclash (01603 761004) or UEA (01603 508050) – or £16 on the night, with doors at 8pm. And there’s a late bar.

Notes for editors
Snapped-up by the wombatwombat/Muzica! team having witnessed a sensational electronica/pop-punk/new wave sound and vision extravaganza at EXIT 2007, Dyko, featuring Wolfgang Flür (ex-Kraftwerk), play their debut UK show at Norwich Arts Centre on Friday, 13 June. The band will not gig in the UK again until playing a short tour in September 2008 (15 September, London; 17 September, Manchester; 19 September, Glasgow).
The only terms that can be used in association with Wolfgang Flür’s name is ‘ex-Kraftwerk’ or ‘formerly of Kraftwerk’; the reference ‘Kraftwerk’ cannot be used.
Muzica! is a non-profit making organisation run by volunteers that was started by wombatwombat in 2005 to develop ongoing cultural links between musicians and artists in the catchment areas of the twin cities of Norwich, UK, and Novi Sad, Serbia. Since 2006, Muzica! has facilitated a link-up with the world famous EXIT festival that has allowed Norfolk-based bands to play there since 2006.
Interview/gig review opportunities with Dyko
Because June’s show is a whistle-stop visit to Norwich – flying in to Heathrow on the morning of the gig and returning to Germany early the next day – there are very limited opportunities for interviews on the day but John Barrie Dyke should available for interview by phone or email between now and 12 June: please email your requests to info at dyko.de ASAP and by Saturday, 31 May.
