Late Night Stargazing

In 1971, Michael Rother and the rather wonderfully named Klaus Dinger quit Kraftwerk and went into the studio with Kraftwerk’s producer Konrad Plank to record their eponymous debut album.

This is the opening track from that album, “Hallogallo” which, according to Wikipedia is a ‘play on “Halligalli”, a German slang term for “wild partying”, with the word “hallo” being German for “hello”‘.

The online translation tool I used tells me it means ‘hijinks’.

Whatever. I love this:


Neu! – Hallogallo

More soon.
