Thom Yorke is a fan and so is Polaris award weiner Dan Snaith/ Caribou. Just listen to their records and you’ll hear the influence of the Krautrock pioneers. They’re not the only ones though influenced by their driving beat and electronic squonks and noodles… A star studded tribute album to seminal German electro-neudlers Neu! is on the way. Without question, the brief-but-stellar career of Neu! is something to be celebrated. Just know though, this is not your Dad’s style of tribute album. It features the bands involved contributing songs influenced by their Krautrock heroes, with the exception of a solo cut by Neu!'s Michael Rother and a track from post-Neu! project La Dusseldorf. The record, Brand Neu!, is reportedly being issued on May 11 as the first release on Feraltone, an imprint of the Groenland label.
Looks interesting but wheu the feuk asked Oasis and Kasabian to participate? Where is Electrelane or Caribou?
