The Quietus talk to Hallogallo

...

The Quietus went and chatted to Michael Rother about Hallogallo

Michael Rother’s pedigree as a Krautrock pioneer is close to unparalleled, with a roster including Kraftwerk, Neu!, and more recently, Harmonia, his project with Cluster’s Hans Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius. But it is his work with the much-missed motorik innovator Klaus Dinger for which he is best known. Latest project Hallogallo was originally intended as a reunion of sorts with Dinger, before the drummer’s tragic death in 2008. Now Rother is making his first appearances in years, with Hallogallo 2010 – consisting of Rother, the majestic Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth on drums, and bassist Aaron Mullan of the Tall Firs.

Hallogallo – Michael Rother + Friends present the music of  Neu!
The legendary German group NEU! released only 3 albums between 1972 and 1975, but these albums had an influence wildly disproportionate to their modest commercial success. Inspired by revisiting these recordings, Michael Rother has invited a group of musicians to visit the NEU! universe with him for a series of live performances: Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), Benjamin Curtis (School of Seven Bells), and Aaron Mullan (Tall Firs) will perform a limited number of concerts this year as ‘Hallogallo 2010’. This group will perform NEU!  music and selections from Rother’s work with Harmonia and his solo albums.
