Two Cool Rock Chicks Listening to Neu!

...that was the title of a Ciccone Youth song, which I had no clue what it meant back in 1995 when I bought the Whitey Album. It wasn't until I read this book called the Secret History of Rock N Roll that I discovered the wonders of German rockers Neu!

formed after a split with Kraftwerk, Neu! are the namedropping hipster's favorite krautrockers. they influenced Johnny Rotten, Joy Division, the Sheffield electronic scene, Eno & Bowie, Negativeland, Tubeway Army, Sonic Youth, Radiohead...and probably Falco too. this is brief live footage of Neu! playing their song "Hero" off Neu!75...this song was highly influential on the British punk scene.
