Mostly about Dusseldorf (in case you didn't know)
on 26 August 2010
I've been listening to a lot of so-called 'Krautrock' recently and after hearing NEU!'s albums wasted no time finding out what Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother did next. While Dinger's music is pioneering, it's far closer to the mainstream than most of the other influential German bands. In other words, it rocks. 'Dusseldorf' is typical: relentless, uptempo and exuberant with intelligent use of sound effects (a football crowd). Dinger is also irrepressible as a vocalist, which complements the instrumentation. 'Silver Cloud' stands out too for being so melodic and elegant, but not a second is wasted on this album. Original and entertaining, a rare combination.
