Spent more time yesterday than I possibly should have piecing together a playlist out of my Neu!, Harmonia and Michael Rother albums, in preparation for tomorrow’s London show by Hallogallo 2010. Anyone seen them yet? I’d be interested to hear your reports if you have.

I’ll try and put up a review of my own on Friday morning. In the meantime, have a look at this lot: the Death album is a bunch of recently-uncovered outtakes, and the Earth one is archival, too. Some good things here, I think, not least that Footwork comp.
