We bothered Michael Rother last week, seeking information on his Krautrock pioneering days and got sidetracked by Lady Gaga chit chat. A few days later Rother, along with Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth and Aaron Mullan of Tall Firs, played a Hallogallo 2010 at the Lincoln Center Out of Doors Fest. It is the first time Neu!'s music has been played in a live setting in 35 years.
As part of the No Cover series, the performance is streaming on culture.wnyc.org. The trio open with “Hallogallo 2010” a livened rendition of the song that started it all for Neu! way back in '72. The only bummer here, is it's strictly streaming, so hopefully you can attach your laptop to some heavy system to get the full live effect.
