It is a great honor to announce that Michael Rother will be joining this years lineup, accompanied by Hans Lampe (NEU! & La Düsseldorf) on percussion and Franz Bargmann (ex-Camera) on Guitar.
For a little bit of history for the uninitiated, perhaps more than any other single band this side of the Velvet Underground, the work of NEU! has influenced all the music we play at 8MM Bar, and been an inspiration for our label 8MM Musik. Rother was instrumental in german experimental music of the late 60s & early 70s. His music has been inspirational for generations of musicians – from David Bowie, Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, The Sex Pistols, Sonic Youth, Stereolab, Radiohead, Primal Scream, and beyond.
