A musical genius.
E2-E4 (Better known as the record LCD Soundsytem ripped off coverwise and musically when making that track for Nike) has been on heavy rotation for a while now and it gets better with every listen. It still sounds so new and fresh today.
His later work in Ash Ra Tempel never seems to get mentioned as much as the early stuff but it's as good if not better than the early stuff (maybe some people wern't so happy about the guitars being phased out for synths). My personal favourite Ash Ra album would be New Age of Earth (Under the Ash Ra banner but in all purposes solo work by Manuel Göttsching) with the track Nightdust being particularly jawdropping.
With this Nu Balearic movemnt in full flow right now lets all pay homage to one of the original movements pioneers as well as Manuel Göttsching being a pioneer in the worlds of Techno and Psych Rock.
Seriously, if you haven't heard this shit then listen to it now! That's an order! And if you have then lets discuss our love of Manuel Göttsching.
