Half Notes: Neu – Neu! 75 (1975)

Share this:

What to call this kinda music? Do a little research and you’ll see stuff like: Krautrock, cosmic punk, ambient, moody, art rock, minimalist, etc. Heck, when I originally popped this disc into my cdrom drive the CDMax selection dialog came up with three entries with musical genres of “misc”, “new age”, and “rock”. I guess there’s people out there as confused as me. No matter the label, Neu had a way of getting the absolute most out of a single chord. Plus, their drummer’s name was Klaus Dinger … which always cracks me up.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
