Our original announcement text:
After Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger left the band Kraftwerk, they released their eponymous debut album as Neu! in 1972, recorded in Hamburg. Today, along with the three subsequent Neu! albums, it is considered a milestone in music history - and the style called motorik, made up of mechanical drums and Rother's minimalist guitar chords with bass accompaniment, was groundbreaking for the sound of artists like David Bowie and Iggy Pop. To mark the 50th anniversary of the first Neu! album, Groenland Records is releasing it as a picture disc and cassette, as well as a box set of other Neu! albums and two tribute albums featuring reworks and remixes by bands such as The National and Mogwai. Michael Rother, who has also had a world-spanning musical career with the band Harmonia, various projects and as a solo artist, is now bringing 50 years of Neu! music history to the stage: in addition to selected European cities, also in his native city of Hamburg at Kampnagel, with Hans Lampe (La Düsseldorf) on drums and Franz Bargmann (Ex Camera) on guitar.
