Michael Rother
Sterntaler

Grönland are currently in the middle of a Michael Rother reissue programme. 1978’s Sterntaler, the second solo LP released by the Neu!/Harmonia hombre, is one of those that has made the cut. As you might expect this is classique Motorik Krautrock, full of rumbling basslines and chirruping synthesisers.

Michael Rother
Fernwärme

Michael Rother’s 1982 LP Fernwärme stands out in the Neu!/Harmonia fellow’s catalogue for a couple of reasons - it was the first album Rother recorded without the aid of Conny Plank, and also saw Rother basing his compositions around the drumming of Can’s Jaki Liebezeit for the first time in several years. Despite having these new elements in play, the sound of Fernwärme doesn’t differ too much from Rother’s contemporaneous output. Think Jean-Michel Jarre with a Motorik beat.

Michael Rother
Katzenmusik

Katzenmusik, the third solo LP from Michael Rother, is proggy Krautrock par excellence. I mean, you’d expect nothing less from someone who was a founding member of both Neu! and Harmonia, would you? There are some nice Americana/country influences mixed in here too. Katzenmusik is also notable for being the last record Rother made with long-time collaborator Conny Plank as producer.

Michael Rother
Solo

Extensive reissue of krautrock legend Michael Rother’s early solo work. As a member of both NEU! And Harmonia, Rother was undoubtedly at the heart of the infamous and highly influential 60s and 70s experimental German scene. ‘Solo’ sees Grönland re-release his first four solo LPs in a lavish box set, both in 6LP 5CD versions, and most excitingly of all with previously unreleased material.

Michael Rother
Flammende Herzen

There was great anticipation around the release of Flammende Herzen when it first emerged in 1977. People were eager to see what Michael Rother would get up to after Neu! had disbanded, and the inclusion of Can’s Jaki Liebezeit also added to the intrigue. The resulting record didn’t disappoint, hitting big with a combination of proggy composition, Krautrock invention and Motorik rhythm.
