The unhappy love-story behind the Motorik beat, which through NEU! influenced Joy Division, Iggy Pop and David Bowie. The insistent drum beat that resonated throughout the entire krautrock wave. In the spring of 1971, the drummer Klaus Dinger's heart was broken by a Swedish girl, and he created the characteristic beat and NEU! band, which according to Iggy Pop 'was punk before punk existed', and whose short existence had a long-lasting influence on the musicians of later generations.
