Upon the breakup of legendary Krautrock duo Neu!, drummer Klaus Dinger formed La Düsseldorf with his brother Thomas and keyboard player Hans Lampe. This, their self-titled debut, was recorded in 1975 and is a staggering mix of Dinger's trademark motorik rhythms, glammy synths, pulsing organs, and urgent guitar work that altogether create a sound that, at times, predates both punk and post-punk, no small feat. Featuring their European hit single Silver Cloud, La Düsseldorf's debut record is classic Krautrock on par with the best offerings of Neu!, Kraftwerk, and Can.
A must for fans of Neu!

"I was so psyched that there are finally legit (albeit pricey) reissues of these classic albums. If you dig Neu! you'll love these spacey-yet-driving jamz. The sounds of planes landing, roaring crowds, and swelling synths all gel with pianos, crystalline melodies and a very Euro feel throughout. Klaus rocks the axe this time, with his bro Thomas and Hans Lampe on percussion and electronics. Comes in a cool mini-LP sleeve with liner notes in Japanese. Also check out "Viva". "White Overalls" from that album is a speaker-exploding overblown mini-masterpiece that just makes you wanna freak out and pump your fists in the air and run all over the place."

"If you like Neu. by this! It is simply a continuation of the Neu! approach to music, simply better recorded. The song "Düsseldorf" is at the same time beautiful and hilarious."
Classic Neu! sound

"If you like the Neu!/Kraftwerk "motorik" beat, then you will like this. The songs initially sound the same, but after a few listens you get into it. The final song "Zeit" is my favourite. Its probably not as good as the Neu! albums, but if you are a Krautrock music junkie - and you need another fix - you cant go wrong with this one."
