NEU! – Negativland

This is the colossal penultimate track from the Dusseldorf acts 1971 debut album. This track gives away the fact that Dinger and Rother were part of the original Kraftwerk juggernaut; with the track speeding up and slowing down at will. Yes, it’s more streamlined than ‘Kraftwerk 1’, but it’s still Krautrock, and it still has that ragged edge. Clashing cymbals and monomaniacal bass. All of this comes into play after the initial field recordings of road work drills etc, of course. Classic.
