Revered multi-instrumentalist Michael Rother joins us at the Jazz Cafe for the first time after selling out Under the Bridge twice last year.
Guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Rother will be backed by Hans Lampe on drums (member of La Düsseldorf and drummer on the album NEU! ´75) and Franz Bargmann on guitar (ex-member of the Berlin-based band Camera), will draw on songs from throughout his career including music from experimental electronica outfits NEU! and Harmonia as well as a selection of tracks from his extensive catalogue of solo material.
For many fans, musicians and critics alike, Rother is a key figure of the innovative music scene originating from Germany in the early 1970s. His music has been inspirational for generations of musicians – from David Bowie, Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, DEVO, Sonic Youth, Stereolab, U2, Autechre, Radiohead, Primal Scream, and beyond.
A member of Kraftwerk, the legendary bands NEU! and Harmonia, Rother has since gone on to release nine solo albums.
Opening the show will be fast-rising electronic duo Makeness.
