The third and last album of NEU!.
Recorded in the legendary Conny Plank studio, 1974 – 75′. Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger have shown once more their ability to experiment and to incorporate their very essence into music. The album combines Klaus Dinger strong guitar sound with Michael Rothers subtle yet impressive ambient soundscapes. The pair had been supported by Thomas Dinger (Klaus’ brother) and Hans Lampe. The album influenced a lot of musicians like David Bowie or Johnny Rotten (Sex Pistols) and NEU! 75′ pioneering charisma still holds true today.
Another finely turned out gatefold Neu! edition from the Gronland camp, Neu! ’75 is widely regarded as the band’s last truly seminal recording together, and was committed to tape after the group reconvened following Michael Rother’s time playing as part of Harmonia (the krautrock super-group that also included Cluster). In addition to the more ambient inclinations of the two previous albums (which can still be heard on the concrete sound interactions of ‘Leb Wohl’), a newfound rock influence became apparent with proto-punk tracks like ‘Hero’ and ‘After Eight’ sounding especially striking within the context of the band’s prior output.
