40 Year Itch : Neu Wave Musik

Neu! : E-Musik

   Following the worldwide success of Kraftwerk's Autobahn, Neu!, made up of former Kraftwerk members Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger, reunited for one final Krautrock statement, their masterpiece Neu! '75. On that album's greatest cut, "E-Musik" ( short for ernste or "serious" music), two drummers play the almost robotic phased "motorik" beat, while Rother and Dinger play guitars and synthesizers for ten minutes that would inspire everyone from David Bowie and Brian Eno to Public Image Ltd and Radiohead. In fact Rother would soon decline an invitation to play on one of Bowie's Berlin albums.
