Profile
Klaus Dinger played drums on the first Kraftwerk LP in 1971. The following year he joined forces with Michael Rother and they formed Neu!, releasing their self-titled debut LP on German label Brain. Their music was heavily innovative and influential, melting distorted guitars with metronomic drumming, noise effects, and tapes. The second LP, Neu! 2, was released in 1973 and featured the first remix experiments, with tracks recorded at 16 and 78 rpm. The band split in 1975 after releasing their final LP, Neu! 75. They eventually recorded more material in the 80s. Rother pursued a solo career, while Dinger went on to form La Düsseldorf. Neu! was highly influential on industrial, noise, and experimental music.
