Sonic Youth and School Of Seven Bells members set for Neu! supergroup


Neu! founder member Michael Rother will headline this year’s Supersonic festival, playing in a band also featuring members of Sonic Youth and School Of Seven Bells.

Named Hallogallo 2010, the band will play the music of Neu! and Rother’s solo work at the festival which takes place at the Custard Factory in Digbeth from October 22-24.

Alongside Rother, the band also features Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), Benjamin Curtis (School Of Seven Bells) and Aaron Mullan (Tall Firs).

Rother said: “We will present some favourite music by Neu!, Harmonia and from my solo albums. I look forward to Supersonic this year because two great musicians and friends are joining me in Hallogallo 2010: Steve Shelley (drummer of Sonic Youth) and Aaron Mullan (guitar player of Tall Firs). Expect some fast-forward movement!”
