BACK IN STOCK!!! As participants in the heyday of early ‘70s Krautrock go, MICHAEL ROTHER's resume and contributions to the world of experimental music and progressive rock might be among the highest. He spent time as guitarist in a 1971 incarnation of KRAFTWERK, then co-founded the legendary combo NEU! with Klaus Dinger. With a combination of studio manipulations with producer Conny Plank, Dinger's driving motorik drumming and Rother's spirited and textural guitar playing, Neu! created a body of music that weighed heavily across sections of classic and modern music cornerstones as diverse as Joy Division, PiL, Bowie, and an entire electronic music scene. He also was a member of HARMONIA, joining Cluster's Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius, worked with Eno, and created a selection of solo recordings into the present time. Rother has been touring as HALLO GALLO 2010 using his past projects as a template for live performance, joined by STEVE SHELLEY (SONIC YOUTH) on drums, and AARON MULLAN (TALL FIRS) on bass. The trio recently performed during WFMU's broadcast at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, and have shows this week at Maxwell's, Lincoln Center, and in Philadelphia. Includes free digital download coupon.
