Mann bleibt auf der Flucht in Algen stecken Di Mann springt auf Polizeiauto herum Mo The line-up settled down somewhat by June , and it stood as Dinger on drums, Schneider on flute and organ, Eberhard Kranemann Florian Schneider's bandmate from Pissoff on bass and Michael Rother on guitar, who had been poached from local band Spirits of Sound.
The performance was different from the Kraftwerk style and is seen by many as a transition from that towards Neu! Shortly afterwards Michael and Klaus seceded from Kraftwerk to form their own group: Ralf Hütter returned to Kraftwerk at the request of Schneider, who was now without a guitarist or drummer. Kraftwerk would continue, recording Kraftwerk 2 at around the same time as Neu! The lack of a drummer would force them to pioneer the use of drum machines and electric percussion, and, in , they made their chart debut with Autobahn.
In June Dinger's girlfriend moved with her family her father, a banker, was unhappy about her being with Klaus to Norway. Here Dinger visited her in the summer of During this holiday, Dinger recorded the "watery" sounds featuring on several of his subsequent songs Im Glück, Lieber Honig, Gedenkenminute, Lieber Honig whilst on a rowing boat with Anita. The pair would continue to see each other irregularly, and often with long intervals between meetings, through , and Having broken off from Kraftwerk, Rother and Dinger quickly began the recording sessions for what would become Neu!.
The band was christened "Neu! Dinger later said of the logo:. I had always been very visual in my thinking. Also, during that time, I lived in a commune and in order to get the space that we lived in, I set up an advertising agency which existed mainly on paper. Most of the people that I lived with were trying to break into advertising so I was somehow surrounded by this Neu!
Dinger describes Conny's abilities as a "mediator" between the often disagreeing factions within the band. The band were booked into the studio for four days in late , according to Dinger, the first two days were unproductive, until Dinger brought his Japanese banjo to the sessions, a heavily treated version of which can be heard on "Negativland", the first of the album's six tracks to be recorded.
It was during these sessions that Dinger first played his famous " motorik " beat. Dinger claims never to have called the beat "motorik" himself, preferring either "lange gerade" "long straight" or "endlose gerade" "endless straight". He later changed the beat's "name" to the " Apache beat" to coincide with his solo album Neondian. In order to promote the release the record label, Brain Records , organised a tour. Ex-Pissoff frontman Eberhard Kranemann was brought in to play bass, the trio recording a "practice" jam in preparation.
The recording of this would later be released as Neu! Only some of the tour dates allotted were ever fulfilled, Rother later saying that he felt Neu! At some shows blood splashed, when Klaus hurt himself with a broken cymbal. The audience was very much impressed by this radical and ecstatic performance. I never felt the need for this kind of performance and always tried to come across with just the music.
So I sat behind my few effect devices and pedals and focused on the developing music and not so much on the audience. Dinger later said that the record company had tried to dissuade them from making it as it was not commercially viable. The following January, Neu! Brain's parent label Metronome Records licensed the Neu! The second side of Neu! There have been several conflicting explanations as to why this was done, the most quoted being Dinger's assertion that: Either way, the second side of the album was poorly received by fans who thought, according to Rother, that "we were making fun of them.
Dinger later said of the issue:. I came from that world, Pop Art thinking. Michael did not like the idea. These days he claims that everything in NEU! He was always very conventional. Following the release of Neu! To this end, Dinger travelled to London with his brother Thomas to try and organise a Neu! Although the visit was planned to last only six weeks or so, the Dinger brothers failed to return, staying for substantially longer.
Despite this they achieved, in Dinger's words, "nothing," having met both John Peel and Karen Townshend wife of Pete and presented them with copies of Neu!
Rother, who unlike Dinger was interested in the Krautrock scene contemporary with Neu! He at first envisaged a Neu! After an initial jam between Moebius, Roedelius and Rother at Forst captured in the track " Ohrwurm " on Harmonia 's debut Rother decided to stay at Forst and prepare a new album with Moebius and Roedelius as Harmonia, essentially abandoning his work with Dinger.
Rother keeps a studio at Forst to this day. Whilst Rother was at Forst, the Dinger brothers returned from London. Whilst in London, Dinger too had come up with a solution to Neu!
Lampe had worked as Conny Plank's assistant throughout much of , and was keenly interested in Neu! Dinger began taking guitar lessons, in the hope that he would be able to take up the role of frontman in a new Neu!
In anticipation of this new line-up, the Dinger brothers and Lampe played several small concerts under the name La Düsseldorf whilst Rother remained at Forst. Rother's continued absence was the cause of many problems, as Dinger was at this point far from proficient at guitar. That summer the trio travelled to Forst to meet Rother.
Finding him entrenched in the recording of Musik von Harmonia and the Cluster album Zuckerzeit , Dinger attempted to convince his ex-bandmate of a Harmonia-La Düsseldorf supergroup which would include himself, Rother, Moebius, Roedelius, Lampe and Thomas Dinger, but this suggestion was rebuked by Rother, who no longer wished to have any involvement with Neu!.
Dinger returned to Düsseldorf disheartened, and immediately began to work on projects of his own. With the help of his friends from the Düsseldorf commune, Dinger set up the short-lived Dingerland Records. I had started my own record company and had produced a band called Lilac Angels. I pressed too many records and around the same time I also organized two free concerts in Düsseldorf and received no help from the industry or the press. As a result, I went bankrupt, to the tune of 50, marks, an enormous sum for me.
Although releases by Eberhard Kranemann and Achim Duchow had been intended for the label, neither made it into print although Kranemann's album "Fritz Müller Rock" was released by the "Röthe Hande" label in The Lilac Angels did not disband, but released a further two albums, meeting moderate popular acclaim in Germany.
He has since maintained that she was "the love of my life" and continued to write songs addressed to her well into the s. Shortly after the collapse of Dingerland , Brain Records began enquiring after the third album Neu! In Dinger and Rother had agreed to a four-year contract with Brain, which specified that three albums be made, and the label, which was itself in financial difficulty, demanded that a final album be made.
By late Harmonia had begun to factionalise, Rother preferring a more guitar driven sound and extensive touring, whilst Moebius and Roedelius favoured the electronic sound that characterised Cluster, and resented Rother's attempts to transform Harmonia from an art-orientated to a pop-orientated ensemble.
Consequently, Rother was well placed to return to Düsseldorf in late , to perform with the three members of La Düsseldorf in concert as Neu!. A live version of Hero was recorded for television, and is widely available on the internet. The performance highlights the disparity and enmity between Dinger and Rother, with Dinger playing guitar at the front of the stage, theatrically singing his lyrics, and Rother sat behind the stage machines, quietly providing the track's lead guitar parts.
The recording of Neu! Dinger recognised this duality, admitting that "me and Michael drift[ed] apart," but Rother maintains that "it was the combination of our two strengths which made the magic. The soft-loud dynamic of the album's two sides have directly influenced many artists since, most notably David Bowie , who used the inverse of that format on his albums Low and "Heroes".
Hero display's Dinger's anger at her loss, "fuck off back to Norway" , and at the music industry following the failure of Dingerland , whilst After Eight' s lyrics feature the repeated refrain " Help me through the night. Immediately following the release of Neu! Rother returned to Forst to complete a second album with Harmonia, whilst Dinger continued to tour with La Düsseldorf.
Having completed his contract with Brain , Dinger left the label and signed to Teldec , a major label in Germany at the time, which specialised in pop music, unlike the more eclectic Brain.
Dinger would remain signed to Teldec until he was dramatically dropped in Dinger spent the summer of improving his guitar playing and writing lyrics, intending to turn La Düsseldorf into a viable pop group.
It was also in this period that Dinger began to use his signature Open-E tuning for the guitar, which would remain his tuning of favour for the rest of his career. Dinger's guitar playing, at first criticised as amateurish, developed in time to be as simplistic yet rhythmically advanced as his drumming, and Dinger never played a full drum kit on record again until 's Year of the Tiger. In September , La Düsseldorf entered the studio to begin recording their debut album , retaining Conny Plank as producer and featuring the same line-up as played on Neu!
The album took the longest to record of any Dinger album yet made, sessions lasting until December , and this is reflected in a higher quality of production, with multiple overdubs of guitar, organ and synthesiser created. The music featured on La Düsseldorf is far more commercial than the La Düsseldorf tracks that had appeared on Neu! Whilst the latter can be described as proto-punk , tracks like Düsseldorf and Silver Cloud lean further towards the sound of post-punk and is greatly influenced by Kraftwerk 's album Autobahn which had achieved commercial success worldwide in Like Autobahn , the album was very successful in Germany, but was unfortunately not marketed abroad.
La Düsseldorf ' s lead single — Silver Cloud — reached number 2 on the German hit parade on its release in early , an achievement all the more striking given that the song was instrumental. The album itself was released by Teldec in the summer of , with all tracks written by Dinger. The personnel listing also featured a "Nicolas van Rhein" on keyboards, a pseudonym that Dinger would continue to use sometimes insincerely for the rest of his career, although more commonly spelled using the Dutch version "Niklaus van Rheijn" after Dinger's relocation to The Netherlands.
La Düsseldorf' s success turned the band members into celebrities with the band "logo sprayed all over Düsseldorf streets" by fans, and Thomas becoming "one of the most glamorous people in Düsseldorf. We were very conscious of [fashion]. The look with the white overalls was an idea that I came up with for NEU!
The others were a bit hesitant at first but we ended up using it as a uniform in La Düsseldorf. It clicked, it functioned. I realized at a very early stage in my life that I would never be able to afford expensive clothes so I had to create my own style.
Besides, I never liked the idea that you could just buy "good taste". I had the same attitude to clothes as to [record] sleeves. They had to be based on cheap things, everyday things. La Düsseldorf also maintained a feeling of unity and coherence as a band which had been visibly lacking in Neu!: The commercial success of their debut album made the band wealthy enough for to be able to create their own studio in Düsseldorf, and from the band dispensed with Conny Plank, preferring to produce their own material, Hans being a trained studio engineer.
Their new facilities were soon put to use, as the band began to record a follow up to La Düsseldorf. The album Viva took shape over a period of a year and a half, studio time no longer being an issue for the band. The album is markedly more commercial than its predecessor, and was specifically aimed at foreign markets—especially Britain and America —, most of the lyrics being in English although French, Italian and German lyrics also featured. However, the international success Teldec anticipated never materialised, as the label's foreign distributor went bust just before Viva' s release.
As a result, the promised release of both Viva and La Düsseldorf abroad only occurred in the UK where the debut was released by Decca and its follow-up by Radar , and some foreign fans who had pre-ordered the albums were left un-refunded.
Viva sold well within Germany however over , copies , and is considered by some to be La Düsseldorf's finest album. It was preceded by the release of the single Rheinita , which although reached only number 3 on the hit parade, far outsold its predecessor Silver Cloud. The single was voted "track of the year" by several German radio stations, and stayed at number one on some unofficial charts for over a year.
Like Silver Cloud , it was an instrumental, dominated by rhapsodic melodies played in diatonic thirds, which would become a familiar mode in Dinger's music from then on.
The track's title alluded to Dinger's two great loves: The great commercial success of both the album and the single prompted La Düsseldorf to perform in concert, something which they had avoided up until then due to their music's heavily overdubbed nature and the fact that Klaus played all instruments except drums, making concerts a practical impossibility. Nevertheless, they made several TV appearances in which they mimed their performances.
A recording of their "performance" of Rheinita at a free concert in Düsseldorf in is widely available on the internet. Viva also saw the first release of a song which would become a concert and studio staple for Dinger over the years:
