R.I.P. KLAUS DINGER: NEU! CO-FOUNDER & KRAFTWERK DRUMMER

Posted by Billyjam, April 2, 2008 04:13pm | Post a Comment

German musician Klaus Dinger, who played drums in the early days of Kraftwerk and went on to co-found Neu!, died recently of heart failure at age 61. As reported today by Billboard Magazine online, Dinger passed two weeks ago on March 21st, but the news was not widely publicized until Gronland, Neu!'s label, made the announcement today.

Drummer Dinger, along with guitarist Michael Rother, both played with Kraftwerk in the early seventies before splitting to form Neu!  who were considered to be a major influence on such later acts as Sonic Youth and Tortoise. The above video is of Neu! performing "Hero" live in 1974.

Film Noir Festival week 1

Posted by Mr. Chadwick, April 2, 2008 02:00pm | Post a Comment

For me, April is the best time of year in L.A.  The weather is great, usually overcast with some rain, the last really mild month before we Spring forward into the instant summer blaze.  It's also the month that the Egyptian Theatre presents the Film Noir Festival.  Possibly the best history lesson I've had as far as L.A. is concerned, every year I get a new take on the "Noir City" via the programming at the Egyptian.  Check out these scenes from opening nights Lizbeth Scott double feature.
