Smoke Notes

German multi-instrumentalist duo Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother formedtheir now legendary band Neu! fresh from six months service in Kraftwerk, and alongside fellow Germans Can laid the blueprint for the rhythmic, groove-based, psychedelic sound of krautrock. Mesmerising minimalistgrooves, ambient experiments and punchy proto-punk sounds were the order ofthe day, and their influence is inescapable in the '70s output of Eno andBowie, or more recently the likes of Sonic Youth and early period Stereolab. New Zealanders in particular seem to have drawn heavily on the Neu! influence their rambling road-trip rhythms prefigure those of groups likeThe Clean, Able Tasmans, The Subliminals, HDU and Jakob by a goodgeneration, and the pair's lo-fi tape-machine experiments were undoubtedly areference point for Chris Knox and his early EPs from Tall Dwarfs. Thisdebut album, recorded over four days and nights in December 1971 with theaid of Can producer Conny Plank, is a statement of intent. It's openingtrack is a ten minute instrumental featuring backtracked guitars laid over ahypnotic groove, with minimal frills and maximum impact, while elsewherethings range from airy ambient tracks to intense industrial squallor.
