To Rococo Rot is a Berlin-based trio who combine electronic and acoustic elements to create instrumental post-rock and electronic music. The group is composed of bassist Stefan Schneider (ex-member of D├╝sseldorf-based group, Kreidler) and brothers Robert (guitar, electronics) and Ronald Lippok (drums, effects). Ronald Lippok has also gained praise for his work in Tarwater. The band''s name is a palindrome, as it can be spelled the same both forwards and backwards. The group''s debut arrived in 1996 in the form of an untitled picture disc (subsequently reissued on CD by Kitty Yo), with the more widely distributed Veiculo (released by UK indie label City Slang) appearing the following year. In 1997, the group recorded an album''s worth of material with producer David Moufang. Following a move to Mute Records, the band released The Amateur View in 1999 and Music Is a Hungry Ghost in 2001, followed by the critically acclaimed Hotel Morgen in 2004. Their latest full-length album, Speculation, was released in March 2010.
