It’s A Meeting of an 80s’s Rocker and 70′ Electronic Pioneer.
Tonight on Echoes, Cluster‘s (or Qluster) Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Lloyd Cole talk about their electronic collaboration.
In alternative rock circles, German bands from the 1980s are considered pioneers of sound. Kraftwerk, Can, Neu, Harmonia and Cluster are consistently name-checked by everyone from David Bowie and Brian Eno to Stereolab and Radiohead. Hans-Joachim Roedelius, a founding member of Cluster and Harmonia, will be 80 in 2014, but he is still as prolific as ever. He recently teamed up in an unlikely alliance with 80’s rock musician Lloyd Cole, best know for Lloyd Cole and the Commotions. Their album together is Selected Studies Volume 1. I talk to Lloyd Cole and Hans-Joachim Roedelius about their cross-generational collaboration tonight on Echoes.
Lloyd Cole: I am the anti-Moebius.
