By relapsing into a repetitive the pulsating beat he is smitten by an overwhelming sensation of not giving up the attempt to regain his lost love.

But his beat also throbs with the post-war geist, and as a symbol of the new Germany, it persistently progresses towards something new. NEU!

The beat and the music created by NEU! would go on to influence people around the world, among them David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Gudrun Gut and Bobby Gillespie. Out of their personal accounts and reflections on the beat and its importance grows the unhappy love story from 1971.
