Michael Rother live in London - review
Venue: Under The Bridge, London
Taciturn Krautrock star Michael Rother heads Under The Bridge in London
“If some of you were here in February,” announces the diffident, remarkably youthful-looking 66-year-old Michael Rother, “then you’ll know I don’t talk much. But I hope you enjoy the music.”
Well, Krautrock was never about the verbals. As for enjoying it, the rapt crowd’s response ranges from chin-stroking awe to bouncing merriment, as Rother’s guileful grooves reiterate that this music is both intellectually robust and an insanely infectious celebration of rhythm.
