Sorry about there not being the full album in the “Sterntaler” ZIP file — it looks like that’s actually all I had of it!
MICHAEL ROTHER – 3 albums (1977-79)
One of the silent geniuses of the Krautrock canon, Michael Rother was one-half of the duo Neu!, and is easily one of the best guitarists of the era. His fretwork is so ridiculously smooth at times, that it sounds like he’s playing chocolate pudding instead of a guitar.
After three albums and and years spent arguing with Neu!-mate Klaus Dinger, Rother went onto form Harmonia with Cluster’s Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius — and then spent the remainder of the ’70s crafting three fantastic solo albums, aided on drums by Can’s Jaki Liebezeit (deliberately playing in a quasi-Dinger style, complete with that unending Motorik beat.)
