One of the most influential of the multitudes who flew the Krautrock banner in the early 1970s, Neu! defined their own subgenre, known as ANDquot;motorik,ANDquot; whose urgent repetitions are reminiscent of traveling at high speeds down GermanyAND#39;s Autobahn highway. The minimalist structure and unrelenting intensity of their self-titled debut album (also known as NEU! 1) had a direct effect on everyone from the Fall to Stereolab; the Neu! influence in modern rock is so pervasive that itAND#39;s often taken for granted. But hearing the intersection of the choppy, heavily processed guitars; the monomaniacal, locomotive rhythms; and the Velvet Underground-in-outer-space modal format of the mostly instrumental songs, one realizes that the subsequent decades of rock music would have sounded significantly different if this album had never existed.
