EPILOGUE TO KEITH HARING INVENTED RAF SIMONS:   NEU !  COME AND PLAY HALLOGALLO FOR VINCENT GALLO

 NEU !   HALLOGALLO   (PLAY ON HALLIGALLI - GERMAN SLANG TERM FOR 'WILD PARTYING')


Having broken off from KRAFTWERK, Rother and Dinger quickly began the recording sessions for what would become Neu!. The band was christened Neu! by Dinger (Rother had been against the name, preferring a more "organic" title) and a  POP ART style logo was created, featuring italic capitals NEU!  Dinger recalls about Neu!'s logo:   "...it was a protest against the consumer society but also against our "colleagues" on the Krautrock scene who had totally different taste / styling if any. I was very well informed about WARHOL , POP ART , CONTEMPORARY ART I had always been very visual in my thinking . "
