ATP NY adds Hallogallo (Michael Rother & friends performing Neu!) & other bands (“Neu! 2010″ also playing other shows)
ATP NY, happening over Labor Day weekend (Sept 3-5), continues to expand its lineup.
To complete the line-up for [Saturday, Sept. 4, the fest's second day] our new additions are headed up by HALLOGALLO, a very special new project headed by Michael Rother and featuring Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), Aaron Mullan (Tall Firs) and Ben Curtis (Secret Machines, School of Seven Bells, and whose brother is now a touring member of Interpol). Hallogallo will perform the music of Rother's 1970s Krautrock legends Neu! - their recent debut show in Barcelona was rapturously received. Also confirmed are cult heros SHELLAC who appear as ATP's House Band, FURSAXA, SIAN ALICE GROUP and TEXT OF LIGHT (featuring Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo). Steve Albini of Shellac is also confirmed to host his Card Games Room over the weekend.
Tickets to all days are on sale.
Both of Neu!'s founding members, Rother and now-deceased Klaus Dinger, were also members of Kraftwerk. "Hallogallo" is the name of track #1 on Neu!'s debut Neu...
"The legendary German group NEU! released only 3 albums between 1972 and 1975, but these albums had an influence wildly disproportionate to their modest commercial success; praised by and influential to David Bowie, Hawkwind, Iggy Pop, DEVO, Sonic Youth, Stereolab, Autechre, Radiohead, U2, Wilco, Primal Scream, and beyond. In May 2010 Gronland Records [released] a box including these three LP's and an incredible batch of bonus material. Also this year will be the first live presentation of this music in more than 35 years as 'Hallogallo 2010.'"
Hallogallo 2010 is also playing a free show at Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park Bandshell on Friday, August 6th. They play International House of Philadelphia, in Philadelphia, PA on August 8th.
The new Saturday additions join Friday's Don't Look Back lineup (Friday will also feature a Comedy Stage, details TBA) of Iggy & The Stooges, Sleep, Mudhoney and The Scientists (doing their first US show), Saturday's Sonic Youth, Explosions In The Sky, The Breeders and Tortoise, and Sunday's Jim Jarmusch-curated lineup (which just added the Greenhornes, but dropped Brian Jonestown Massacre who were previously announced for the festival but canceled).
