This is a very plush set of the '60s & '70s krautrock scenester Rother - he of the bands Kraftwerk, NEU! & Harmonia.
For many fans, musicians and critics alike the guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Michael Rother is a key figure of the innovative music scene originating from Germany in the early 1970s. His music has been inspirational for generations of musicians – from David Bowie, Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, DEVO, Sonic Youth, Stereolab, U2, Autechre, Radiohead, Primal Scream, and beyond.
Michael Rother was a member of Kraftwerk in 1971 and formed the legendary bands NEU! (with Klaus Dinger) and Harmonia (with Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius of Cluster) before releasing nine solo albums.
In 2010 Michael Rother formed the live project Hallogallo 2010 with Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) and Aaron Mullan (Tall Firs). Together they played numerous acclaimed concerts – e.g. ATP UK, Spain and USA.
Between 2011 and 2016, Michael Rother toured many European countries as well as Russia, China and Japan. He also created film scores for the two feature films “Houston” and “The Robbers“. “Houston” by German director Bastian Günther was premiered at the legendary Sundance Film Festival and has since won several awards.
In October 2015, Groenland Records released the career-spanning Harmonia boxset “Complete Works” for which Michael Rother contributed and edited archival recordings of the band. The release was welcomed by fans around the world and received great attention by the media as one of the highlights of 2015.
Michael Rother presents the ‘endless fast-forward’ music of NEU! as well as tracks by Harmonia and from his catalogue of solo works here.
