Two legendary groups collide.

Following their split from Kraftwerk, Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother’s NEU! became one of most influential bands to come out of the 1970s krautrock explosion. Their sound – based around the locked motorik drumbeat of Dinger and the harmanonic drone of Rother – set the blueprint for Sonic Youth, Radiohead and Primal Scream, but also countless electronic producers.

One such prucer is Al Lover, whose other key influence is the bruiting discord of NYC proto-punks Suicide. To mark his new 10″, Neuicide!, the Austin producer has put together this vinyl-only tribute to the two ground-breaking acts. As well as original releases, the extraordinary mix incldues side projects, solo material, reworks, other band covers (including by Peaches and Neneh Cherry) and snippets from old interviews.
