Michael Rother - Solo 6xLP
Here's a much-needed blast of good news: Berlin label Groenland is releasing a box set of Neu!/Harmonia/Kraftwerk guitarist Michael Rother's first four solo LPs as well as unreleased material that includes soundtracks for the films Die Raeuber and Houston. Solo encompasses Flammende Herzen (1977), Sterntaler (1978), Katzenmusik (1979), and Fernwarme (1982), plus Soundtracks and Remixes & Live (the latter two LPss are exclusive to the vinyl box set). With Neu! and Harmonia, Rother helped to create a vastly influential strain of krautrock featuring motorik rhythms that were inexhaustibly inspirational.
