Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger’s landmark self-titled album NEU! defined an era of underground music. 50 years after its release, the album’s influence continues to be enormous.

Across its six tracks, the 1972 album dismantled every hierarchical structure in rock music. Clearing the path soon trod by Brian Eno and David Bowie, and later countless others who were searching for a way out of established rock-and-roll formats toward something more transcendent and profound.

A former member of some of the most influential German bands (Kraftwerk and Harmonia amongst them), Michael Rother is a foundational artist whose influence changed the face of music. Direct lines can be traced to Radiohead, Devo, U2 and Iggy Pop, to name just a few who note him as a point of influence.

Celebrate 50 years of NEU! as Michael Rother collects the now legendary canon and recasts it. Performing alongside long-time collaborators Hans Lampe on drums (La Düsseldorf), Franz Bargmann on guitar (exCamera) and Vittoria Maccabruni (electronics & vocals).

Michael Rother + Friends is supported by Goethe-Institut.
