Things angular

The new Stereolab album still isn't out locally (though PolyEster have US imports at $5-10 more than getting them from Amazon would cost you); however, today I picked up the copy of The Groop Played Space-Age Bachelor Pad Music that has been sitting in the window of the second-hand record shop in Brunswick St. for ages. It's rather angular and krautrocky; with a few "easy listening" tracks that sound a bit too sparse and distorted to be quite so easy.

Speaking of such things, I've been listening to Neu! a bit, and keep expecting to hear French-accented female ba-ba-ba vocals.

Also, whilst in Collectors' Corner, I noticed something potentially awful: a Cleopatra Records Neu! tribute compilation. Though, to its possible redemption, it has an Autechre track, and nothing that jumped out as being obviously naff, like, say, Leætherstrip.

I've heard the Autechre cover (I have a 12" of theirs with that song on it), it's not too bad...

"Für Immer", right? I got exactly the same impression from my first listen to that. The first Neu! album seems to be the most radical, whilst Neu! '75 seems to be the most complete. All three albums are pretty good, though the speeded up/slowed down tracks on Neu! 2 seem a bit redundant.

Only found out the other day, from going through the Can discography on the DVD, that Hunters and Collectors were named after a song of theirs.

Re:
Yes, Für Immer is one track which gave that impression.

Some of Faust's material also sounds like it was an influence on the 'Lab. I must say I haven't listened to any Can albums other than Tago Mago yet, and that didn't grab me.

Re:
check out future days, that may be an easiest first listen than tago mago.

Re:
Too weird, huh? You really have to appreciate the parts where they get into an orgiastic frenzy...
