Metronomy open the celebrations for the 10th Bicycle Film Festival on October 14th. Ben Eshmade chats with Jack Barnett from These New Puritans about their music influences, the making of their ambitious album Hidden, and their live performance @ the Barbican on 23 Oct with the Britten Sinfonia. Plus, Michael Rother from the legendary German group NEU!, which influenced and have been lauded by David Bowie, Hawkwind, Iggy Pop, Sonic Youth, Radiohead, U2, Wilco, Primal Scream, and many others. He explains how NEU!'s sound didn't actually involve any synthesizers at the beginning, and talks about their "action painting" approach to creating music.
