What’s Old Is NEU! Again

This evening, for the first time in thirty-five years, NEU!‘s music will be heard live by at least one of its creators. Though his co-founder, Klaus Dinger, passed away in 2008, Michael Rother, one of the ex-Kraftwerk musicians that started the seminal krautrock outfit, is performing the music of NEU! with Sonic Youth drummer, Steve Shelley; School of Seven Bells guitarist, Benjamin Curtis; and Tall Firs player Aaron Mullan. Though it surely won’t be the same as it was back then, we’re psyched it’s happening–especially in New York City. What a great place we live. All the details are here.
