In light of the krautrock resurgence (The Flaming Lips' Embryonic, Radiohead's The King of Limbs, Portishead's Third) I gave this band a shot, and what a nice surprise it was.

Definitely a good band. I found a couple records at a local vinyl shop, but shit was expensive!

That being said, what do you mean by the resurgence of Krautrock? I may be mistaken by the term, but I always thought the term referred specifically to the avant-garde psychedelic bands coming out of the German scene during the 60s/70s. I know Neu! falls in this category, but how do the rest? Different time period and different location of origin.

Oh, I was just noting that era's influence on those bands' recent efforts. If you listen to Hallogallo by Neu! and immediately follow it with the first song from any of those albums you can hear a fairly strong crossover. Pretty cool that all three albums have come out at relatively the same time, too.

EDIT: Here are some Youtubes for anyone interested in drawing comparisons:

Neu! - Hallogallo:


Radiohead - Bloom:


Portishead - Silence:


The Flaming Lips - Convinced of the Hex:

I've been at the show of this French band named Zombie Zombie two days ago and I thought immediately NEU! and kraut rock where their first influence, in their last album they play five soundtracks off John Carpenter movies but on stage they're infinitely better:

btw, I dunno if he's still touring but, if so, don't miss Michael Rother playing the music of NEU! show, it's awesome. I've seen Rother twice (one was at ATP'05, I remember on the bill it was stated that Omar and Cedric had to join him during his set but this never happened) and both experiences have been nothing but awesome.

Great band. Don't listen to them enough, but definitely have phases when they're what I need to listen to.

This kraut song is fucking addictive. It reminds me of a dwarf land in some fucked up, but calm dream.
