Released:
Label: Groenland Records
Finally, fans get a 100% official reissue of the often-bootlegged Neu! '86 (aka Neu! 4). Recorded in the mid-'80s but not released at the time, these tracks find Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger riding their motorik beat straight into an electric dust-cloud of punky new wave and sleek club music. Half of them, including "Drive (Grandfunken)" and the sublime "Wave Mother," sound like hipster electro from post-9/11 Brooklyn, which is amazing when you remind yourself they predate techno's first wave. Unfortunately, this version of Neu! 86 is missing a key recording: "Fly Dutch II."
