50th Anniversary Limited Edition Picture Disc!
Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother, formerly of Kraftwerk, created Neu! in August of 1971. They recorded their first album with Conny Plank as engineer and co-producer over four nights in early December 1971 at Windrose (Dumont-Time) Studio in Hamburg, Germany. The album was mixed three days later at Star-Musik Studiio in Hamburg. The record was released in 1972.
After the release of their debut album on Metronome's newly founded "Brain" label, Neu! played several concerts, occasionally joined by Eberhard Kranemann on Hawaii guitar and Uli Trepte on bass.
Rother's style had as much to do with not playing as it did with virtuosity, and his fills of open chords, stuttered cadences, and broken syntax provided a much-needed diversion for the metronymic regularity of the rhythm section. Rother didn't riff; he painted a mix with whatever was necessary to get the point across. His mannerisms here are not to draw attention to himself, but rather to that numbing, incessant rhythm provided wondrously by Dinger. Neu!'s debut album was driving music for the apocalypse in 1971.
