Roedelius W/new LP, Rare US Tour

 

Krautrock alert!

 

By Blurt Staff

 

October will see a rare US solo tour by the legendary Hans-Joachim
Roedelius, plus a new collaboration from him, an album
called ‘Stunden (billed as Roedelius
Schneider, featuring Stefan Schneider of Kreidler and To Rococo Rot). It
arrives Oct. 25 on Bureau B. For the American tour, which starts Oct. 1 at ATP
in Asbury Park and wraps at the end of the month at the annual MoogFest in
Asheville, NC, Roedelius will have as opening act XAMBUCA, aka Chandra Shukla
and Jason Scott Furr (from Asheville)

 

 The mastermind behind many electronic music projects
over the last 35 years, Roedelius founded the seminal bands Kluster (with
Dieter Moebius and Conrad Schnitzler – who recently passed away) and Harmonia
(with Moebius and Michael Rother) and recorded the albums Zuckerzeit (Cluster, 1974) and Deluxe (Harmonia, 1975), which are
considered blueprints for today’s electronica. In the late 70s he also worked
with Brian Eno.

 

Kluster morphed into Cluster and ran through 1981,
getting back together at various points again starting in 1989. Most recently
the group has been calling itself Qluster, which just released the album Fragen – we’ll have a BLURT review for
that shortly.
