->''"This beat was the war drum of modernity, pushing the listener forwards into the future. It is often associated with the great transport networks of UsefulNotes/{{Germany}}, the railway lines and the autobahns. In fact the rhythm even mimics that of a car speeding along the open road or a train clattering along the rails: Fast, measured, travel never ending. It was the rock beat stripped back to a glittering chassis. It was the minimalist framework on which improvisation could take place."''

With help from Conny Plank, they recorded their ground breaking debut album, which opened with "Hallogallo." This track is crucial because it defined, right there and then, Neu!'s important trademark sound, which was based on Dinger's "motorik beat" (sometimes also called the "Apache beat"). The rest of the album was, for the most part, incredibly different and experimental, although they seemed already defined (even by visual standards. [[IconicLogo Their logo was basically their name painted with a red marker over a white cover in a pop-art style]]).

Their second album was even more amazing. After recording some songs (including "Für Immer," which Julian Cope, in his book ''Krautrocksampler,'' called "Hallogallo, part two"), they found themselves short of money. Considering that they had released a single in between albums, they added the single (titled "Super,"

Their temperaments clashed and Dinger and Rother separated, and then reunited a couple of years later for their third and final album in the '70s, ''Neu!'75,'' which was a two headed beast. On side one, there were Rother's ambient explorations, very focused on keyboards and his guitar playing, which was very fluid and devoid of stuff like chordal progression and blues scales [[note]] in fact, right from the beginnings of the group, like some of the best Krautrock groups, they didn't want to emulate English or American music in any way, shape or form [[/note]]. On side two, Dinger basically set the template for UK {{Punk|Rock}} music, at least two years (or three, if you count the A-side of single "Super") before the first singles by the Music/SexPistols and Music/TheDamned, with relentless single chord guitar pounding, distorted "Motorik" beats bashed simultaneously by his brother Thomas and Hans Lampe, and Dinger's sneering, unintelligible vocals. They split and went separate ways (Dinger went to form ''La Düsseldorf,'' who took that second side of the record UpToEleven, and Rother went to form ''Harmonia'' with Cluster and recording his debut solo album).

Considering that they had released a single in between albums, they added the single (titled "Super", with "Neuschnee" as a B-side) to the recorded tracks, but it still fell short of the desired recorded time. So, what did they do? Basically they took "Super" and "Neuschnee" and played them at different RPM (Rotations per Minute) and other methods like putting the record off-center at the turntable, hence anticipating the remix.
