The Wire (p.68) - "Under the plush, cycling layers of synth, piano and guitar, the dual floor tom pulse surges relentlessly and joyfully with mini-cresendos of ills and cymbal hits."

Led by Klaus Dinger, formerly of Kraftwerk and Neu!, La Dusseldorf was one of the finest and most influential of the second wave of krautrock bands that emerged in the mid-1970s. Their self-titled debut album still bears traces of Neu!'s insistent, minimalist "motorik" beat, but adds an extra layer of atmospheric electronic soundscapes, prefiguring everything from new wave and synth-pop to techno, and heavily influencing David Bowie and Brian Eno.
