Atlantis

Musicians: Inga Rumpf (vocals), Adrian Askev (keyboards), Alex Conti (guitar), Ringo Funk (drums), Karl-Heinz Schott (bass)

The successor band to Frumpy produced 4 studio albums and 1 live album. The music is less progressive and more commercial. The song "It's getting better" is the title song of the second album, which was published in 1973 on the Vertigo label. The live track "Friends" is taken from the album "Atlantis live", which was published in 1974.


Armageddon

Musicians: Frank Diez (leadguitar, vocals), Manfred Galatik (piano, bass, vocals), Michael Nьrnberg (bass, guitar), Jьrgen Lorenzen (drums)

The band of the excellent guitar player Frank Diez played Anglo-American inspired hardrock with complex structures. They recorded only one single album "Armageddon", which was published in 1970 on the Kuckuck label and is one of the best hardrock albums of the early seventies. Unfortunately, it remained unnoticed.


Birth Control

Musicians: Bernd Koschmidder (bass), Reinhold Sobotta (keyboard), Bernd Noske (drums, vocals), Bruno Frenzel (guitar, vocals)

Birth Control is Krautrock monster that has been on the scene for almost 40 years. On their first albums, their music is hardrock with progressive and classical elements. They attracted attention with their album covers which were extremely provocative at the time they appeared (birth control pill case on their first album, giant grasshopper eating little babies with the pope in the background). The songs "The Work Is Done" from the album "Operation" from 1971 and "Gamma Ray" from the album "Hoodoo Man" are timeless classics.


Can

Musicians: Irmin Schmidt (organ), Holger Czukay (bass), Jaki Liebezeit (percussion, flute), Michael Karoli (guitar), Damo Suzuki (vocals), Malcolm Mooney (vocals)

Can is one of the most influential Krautrock bands and enjoys a worldwide cult status. Interestingly enough, they succeeded with avantgarde rock, ineligible for most of the auditors. In the late sixties and early seventies they created the soundtracks of numerous underground movies. The title "Mother Sky" is from the album "Soundtracks" from 1971.


Cluster - Hollywood

Cluster (pronounced "Kloooster"- that's what the band puts worth on) are Hans Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius. They made very experimental music in the electronic sector. The track "Hollywood" is from the album "Zuckerzeit" from 1974. It is predominantly played with keyboards and rhythm machine and clarifies their style to wake emotions with most simple structures.


Cravinkel

Musicians: Gert 'Kralle' Krawinkel (guitar, percussion), Rolf 'Mick' Kaiser (bass, vocals), Klaus George Meier (guitar, vocals, percussion)

The band of the later Trio guitar player Kralle Krawinkel published 2 albums. Their first one named "Cravinkel" from 1970 contained beautiful Anglo-American inspired folkrock. The 2 tracks introduced here are from this album. Their second album "Garden Of Loneliness" is entirely different. It is much more progressive and the tracks are much longer. Gert Krawinkel emerged again 1980 with the beginning of the so called "New Wave" with the band Trio.


Curly Curve

Musicians: Martin Knaden (guitar), Hanno Bruhn (vocals, guitar), Kurt Herkenberg (bass, vocals), Chris Axel Klцber (keyboards), Hans Wallbaum (drums)

The first album "Curly Curve" from this hardrock outfit was published in 1973 on the Brain label. The song "Queen of Spades" is an ingenious space rock classic. The song "Hell and Booze" has to be in every respectable Krautrock collection. In 1981, the album "Forgotten Tapes" was published. It contained material which had already been recorded in 1974.


Dull Knife - Tumberlin' Down

Dull Knife's only album "Electric Indian" was published in 1971 on the Philips label. In spite of being a relatively simple hardrock album, it enjoys cult status due to its rarity.


Electric Sandwich

Musicians: Jцrg Ohlert (guitar, organ, mellotron), Klaus Lormann (bass), Jochen Carthaus (vocals, sax, harmonica), Wolf Fabian (drums)

Electric Sandwich's only album "Electric Sandwich" was published in 1972 on the Brain label. The music has references to jazz, blues, psychedelia and rock. The song "China" shows strong references to the German fusion sizes Xhol or Kollektiv.


Eloy

Musicians: Manfred Wieczorke (guitar, bass, vocals), Erich Schriever (vocals, piano, organ), Frank Bornemann (guitar, percussion, harmonica), Helmut Drath (drums), Wolfgang Stцcker (bass)

Eloy are one of the oldest and most successful German bands, who were hated by the music press due to their numerous affectations. They appeared strangely dissociated and arrogant at their live acts. The first 3 albums contained relatively simple hardrock with beautiful organ parts, guitar solos and great percussion. Later, their style turned to bombast rock. The song "Castle In The Air" is from the third album "Floating", which was published in 1974 on the Harvest label.


Embryo

Musicians: Mal Waldron (e-piano), Jimmy Jackson (mellotron, organ), Dave King (bass), Christian Burchard (drums, marimba, vibraphon), Jцrg Evers (bass), Edgar Hoffmann (violin), Roman Bunka (guitar).

Embryo are one of the most interesting, flexible und important Krautrock bands which have been on the scene since 1970. On almost every album you find different musicians and musical styles. On their first albums, they play an exciting mix of underground, Krautrock and jazz. On their later albums, the music turns to jazzrock with oriental influences. The song "Radio Marrakesch" is from their fourth album "Steig aus" from 1972, the song "A Place To Go" from their fifth album "Rocksession". Both albums where published on the Brain label.


Epitaph

Musicians: Cliff Jackson (guitar, vocals), Klaus Walz (guitar, vocals), Bernd Kolbe (bass, vocals), Jim McGillivray (drums, vocals)

Epitaph are a German-British band who play British styled hardrock with nice double lead guitars. Although being no typical Krautrock band, they were and still are a desired live act. The song "Fly" is from their second album "Stop, Look And Listen", which was published in 1972 on the Polydor label. After the excellent third Album "Outside The Law" from 1974, which has a similar quality than the first Wishbone Ash albums, their music turned more commercial.


Eroc

Musicians: Eroc - all instruments

Eros was the electronic whizz kid of Grobschnitt until he left the band in 1983. Many intros and musical interludes were based on his ideas. "Wolkenreise" is one of these songs. It provided a soundtrack for the legendary "Sцldner" show from 1978. It was published on his third album "Eroc 3" in 1979 and became a little success! "Norderland" is from the first album "Eroc" from 1975 and is acoustically related to the "Цlberg" phase (first album of Grobschnitt).


Faust

Musicians: Werner Diermaier (drums), Joachim Irmler (organ, electronics), Arnulf Meifert (drums), Jean-Hervй Peron (bass, guitar, vocals), Rudolf Sosna (guitar, keyboards), Gunter Wьsthoff (sax, effects).

Faust were the product of the journalist Uwe Nettelbeck. The idea was to create a band which could match with Can and Kraftwerk. 6 almost unknown musicians moved into an old schoolhouse in the city of Wьmme and stayed there for one year, sponsored by the Polydor label with a huge amount of money. In 1971, they created their self-titled debut album, extraordinary and crazy masterpiece even for today's standards, which received a very bad response by the music press. Their second album "So Far" was finally successful in England, where it reached number 13 in the charts. The crazy musical collage "Why Don't You Eat No Carrots" is from the first album, "So Far" from the second one.


Frumpy

Musicians: Inga Rumpf (vocals, percussion), Jean-Jacques Kravetz (organ, piano, mellotron, percussion, sax), Karl-Heinz Schott (bass, percussion), Carsten Bohn (drums, percussion), Rainer Baumann (guitar)

Frumpy played excellent hard bluesrock with progressive, experimental and classical elements. Their trademark were the remarkable voice of Inga Rumpf and the outstanding keyboard playing of Jean-Jaques Kravetz. The song "How The Gypsy Was Born" is like "Take Care Of Illusion" from their second and best album "Frumpy 2", which was published in 1971 on the Philips label. Unfortunately, Frumpy disbanded after 3 studio and 1 live album. Some of the former members founded the band "Atlantis".


Gomorrha

Musicians: Helmut Pohl (drums), Eberhard Kreitsch (bass, organ, Piano, vocals), Ali Claudi (guitar, vocals), Ad Ochel (guitar, vocals), Peter Otten (vocals)

The tracks "Dance On A Volcano" and "I Turned To See Whose Voice It Was" are from Gomorrha's second and last album "I Turned To See Whose Voice It Was", which was published in 1972 on the Brain label. This album is a milestone of progressive rock.


Grobschnitt

Grobschnitt were one of Germany's best live bands. Their albums where never as convincing as their live performances, but each of them contains some gems. The songs "Vater Schmidt" and "Traum und Wirklichkeit" are from the German version of the album "Jumbo, which was published in 1976 in a German and an English version on the Brain label. The song "Anywhere" is from the album "Rockpommels Land", which was published in 1977 and was the biggest commercial success the band ever had.


Guru Guru

Musicians: Mani Neumeier (drums, vocals), Uli Trepte (bass, vocals on "Kдnguru"), Bruno Schaab (bass and vocals on "Guru Guru"), Ax Genrich (guitar, vocals)

The band of the drummer Mani Neumeier had a lot of crew changes. The dinosaurs of Krautrock published their first album "Ufo" in 1970 on the Ohr label. The music on this album is thus wild that they make the band Cream sound as psychedelic as your "next door village combo". Songs like "LSD-Marsch" keep the promise the title suggests. The song "Ooga Booga" is from the album "Kдnguru", which was published in 1972 on the Brain label. The songs "Samantha's Rabbit" and "Der Elektrolurch" are from the album "Guru Guru", which was published in 1973, also on the Brain label.


Harmonia

Musicians: Michael Rother (guitar, piano, organ, electric percussion), Hans Joachim Roedelius (organ, piano, electric guitar, electric percussion), Dieter Moebius (synthesizer, electric guitar, electric percussion).

The band Harmonia developed a musical style of their own, electronic music that fits between Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream. However, here the rhythm is dominating. The songs "Watussi" and "Dino" are from the first album "Harmonia", which was published in 1973 on the Brain label. They show clearly how timeless and animating "electronic dance music" can be.


Hoelderlin

Musicians: Nanny de Ruig (vocals), Nops Noppeney (violin, viola, piano, flute), Peter Kдseberg (bass, guitar, vocals), Michael Bruchmann (drums, percussion), Jochen Grumbcow (cello, flute, guitar, piano, organ, mellotron), Christian Grumbcow (guitar)

The song "Requiem fьr einen Wicht" is from Hoelderlin's debut album "Hoelderlin's Traum", which was published in 1972 on the Pilz label. Hoelderin played nice trippy psychedelic folkrock with mainly acoustic instruments with excellent German lyrics. The voice of the female singer Nanny is beautiful. 3 years later, Hoelderlin published the self-titled second album with a different crew, where they played an entirely different musical style akin to Genesis or King Crimson.


Jane

Musicians: Bernd Pulst (vocals), Klaus Hess (guitar), Werner Nadolny (organ, flute), Charly Maucher (bass, vocals), Peter Panka (drums, percussion)

The band Jane from Hannover published their excellent first album "Together" in 1971 on the Brain label. They play rock with heavy guitar riffs, a beautiful organ sound and a great lead guitar. The tracks "Daytime" and "Together" are from this album.


Kin Ping Meh

Musicians: Kalle Weber (drums, percussion), Torsten Herzog (bass, vocals), Frieder Schmitt (organ, piano, mellotron, vocals), Willie Wagner (guitar, harmonica, vocals), Werner Stephan (guitars, vocals, percussion)

The most interesting albums of the Mannheim band Kin Ping Meh are their self-titled debut album from 1971 as well its successor "No. 2" from 1972. The music is an exciting mix of poprock and progressive and psychedelic elements. On their later albums, which where much more commercial, the ex 2066 & Then singer Geff Harrison joined them as singer. The song "Fairy Tales" is from their first album.


Klaus Schulze

Musicians: Klaus Schulze (several synthesizers and organs)

Klaus Schulze is one of the most influential German musicians. Having played drums on the first Tangerine Dream album "Electronic Meditation" in 1969 and on the first self-titled Ash Ra Tempel in 1971, he concentrated on his solo work. The song "Mental Door" is from his fourth album "Picture Music", which was published in 1973 on the Brain label.


Kraan

Musicians: Peter Wolbrandt (guitar, vocals, percussion), Hellmut Hattler (bass), Johannes A. Pappert (sax, percussion), Jan Fride (drums, congas)

The band Kraan is one of the oldest German bands. They are still performing. Only the first albums can be classified as "Krautrock". On their later albums they turned to jazzrock. The excellent self-titled debut album was recorded in 1972 in a farm house in Wintrup in the county of Westfalen, where the band lived as a commune for several years. It contains interesting jazz rock with Krautrock, Arabian and progressive elements. The song "Nam Nam" is from the third album "Andy Nogger", which was published in 1973 on the Spiegelei label.


La Dьsseldorf

Musicians: Thomas Dinger (vocals, percussion), Hans Lampe (drums und perkussion), Andreas Schell (piano), Klaus Dinger (vocals, guitar und percussion), Nikolaus van Rhein (organ and synthesizer),Harald Konietzko (bass).

The band La Dьsseldorf appeared on the scene in 1976 and is a successor of the band "Neu", whose tradition they kept. La Dьsseldorf had a radio hit with "Rheinita", which sounds similar to the song "Isi" from Neu. "Rheinita" was published in 1978 on the album "Viva".


Lava

Musicians: Thomas Karrenbach (piano, organ, vocals), Stefan Ostertag (guitar, vocals), Jьrgen Kraaz (guitar, flute, choir, bass, organ), Christian Ostertag (bass, choir, guitar), Archer Weaver (drums, harmonica, vocals), Peter Moses (percussion)

The first and only album "Tears Are Going Home" of the Berlin commune Lava, which was published in 1973 on the Brain label, was a style mix of Krautrock, spacerock and psychedelic folk. The song "Holy Fool" is a beautiful psychedelic ballad. On the other hand, the song "Tears Are Going Home" is a space rock killer track in the best Hawkwind tradition.


Lucifer's Friend

Musicians: Peter Hecht (organ), Dieter Horns (bass, vocals), John Lawton (vocals), Joachim Rietenbach (drums, percussion), Peter Hesslein (guitar, vocals)

Before Lucifer's Friend were founded, its members were involved in several other bands like Asterix, Electric Food or Pink Mice. Their best albums are the self-titled debut album from 1971 as well as their masterpiece "How The Groupies Killed The Blues" from 1972, even though the world press celebrated their third album "Banquet" with enthusiasm. The music is a style mix of Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep and experimental hardrock. "Ride The Sky" from their first album is a killer hardrock song in best Led Zeppelin tradition. The song "Sorrow" is the highlight of the third album "Banquet", which was published in 1974. On their later albums, the music developed towards mainstream hardrock. Their singer John Lawton joined Uriah Heep in 1976.


Novalis

Musicians: Lutz Rahn (keyboards), Detlef Job (guitar), Hartwig Biereichel (drums), Heino Schьnzel (bass, vocals), Carlo Karges (guitar, keyboards)

Novalis were formed in 1971 and used German lyrics from their second album on. Besides idealized and romantic lyrics, they used classical works. The song "Impressionen" from the album "Novalis" is an example for an interesting adaption of the "5th Symphony" by Anton Bruckner. The song "Wer Schmetterlinge lachen hцrt" from the same album became some kind of hymn for the band. Whenever somebody talks about Novalis, this song is mentioned.


Odin

Musicians: Jeff Beer (keyboards, percussion, vocals), Ray Brown (bass, vocals), Stuart Fordham (drums, percussion), Bob Terstall (guitar, vocals)

Odin published their first and only self-titled album in 1972 on the Vertigo label. In spite of Jeff Beer being the only German musician, the album may be filed without hesitation in the category "Krautrock". The quiet song "Tribute To Frank" is a brilliant acoustical tribute to Frank Zappa.


Os Mundi

Musicians: Dietrich Markgraf (sax, flute), Udo Arndt (guitar, organ, piano, percussion, vocals), Buddy Mandler (drums, congas, bongos, vocals), Christoph Busse (drums, guitar, percussion, vocals), Andreas Villain (bass), Mikro Rilling (cello, percussion, vocals)

Os Mundi's first album "Latin Mass" was published in 1971 and had Latin lyrics! The Berlin band was one of the first rock big-bands and had up to 12 members. The song "A Question Of Decision" is a progressive gem and is from the second and last album "43 Minuten", which was published in 1972 on the Brain label.


Prof. Wolfff

Musicians: Klaus Peter Schweitzer (guitar, e-piano, vocals), Romi Schickle (organ, vocals), Mondo Zech (bass, vocals), Michael Sametinger (drums), Fritz Herrmann (guitar, vocals, harmonica)

The first and only self-titled album of Prof. Wolfff was published in 1972 on the Metronome label. hey were something like the progressive version of "Ihre Kinder". Excellent German lyrics were wrapped in solid progressive rock.


Randy Pie

Musicians: Dicky Tarrach (drums), Manfred Thiers (bass, vocals), Werner Becker (keyboards, vocals), Bernd Wippich (guitar, vocals)

The track "Luis" is from the excellent debut album "Randy Pie", which was published in 1973 on the Zebra label. The track "Highway Driver" is from the self-titled second album, which was published in 1975 on the Polydor label. It was much more commercial than the first album and a big success, nevertheless an excellent album that can be strongly recommended.


Rattles

Musicians: Herbert Bornhold (percussion), "Zappo" Lьngen (bass), Edna (vocals), Frank Mille (guitar)

The album "The Witch" was published in 1972 on the Pilz label. I think that it is the only album of the Rattles which can be put into the drawer "Krautrock" (can be pegged as "Krautrock"). The album version of "The Witch", introduced with this compilation, is 30 seconds longer than the single version and the killer fuzz guitar solo is even more distorted. A killer track.


Scorpions

Musicians: Michael Schenker (guitar), Klaus Meine (vocals), Rudolf Schenker (guitar), Wolfgang Dziony (drums), Lothar Heimberg (bass)

The debut album "Lonesome Crow" of the Hannover band Scorpions was published in 1971 on the Brain label. It is a masterpiece of progressive rock and THE Scorpions album that may not be missing in any good Krautrock collection. The later albums got more and more straightforward / linear and commercial.


Sperrmьll

Musicians: Helmut Krieg (guitars, mandoline, vocals), Harald Kaiser (bass, vocals), Reinhold Breuer (drums, percussion), Peter Schneider (organ, e-piano, synthesizer)

The self-titled debut album of Sperrmьll was published in 1973 on the Brain label and was unfortunately their only album. The track "No Freak Out" keeps what its title suggests.


Topas

Musicians: Johan Daansen (guitar), Richard Kersten (guitar), Nick Paine (guitar), Reinhard Besser (bass), Hartmut Pfannmьller (drums und percussion), Jьrgen Zцller (percussion), Brad Howell (percussion), Michael Cretu (keyboards), Christian Kolonovitz (organ), Dieter Kolb (organ), Stefan Gleitsmann (oboe), Christian Felke (flute), Peter Drischel (sax), Helmut Henne (tuba), Manfred Schьssler (bouzouki), Thomas von Janowski (accordion)


Topas one and only self-titled album was published in 1980 and is a commercial mix of rock music and smooch songs. The songs "Train To An Island" and "Hurricane" are killer rock tracks with brilliant guitar work. It is strange that these two songs were no commercial success.

Das einzige Album "Topas" wurde 1980 verцffentlicht und ist ein relativ kommerzieller Mix aus rockigen Tцnen und Schmuseesongs. Empfehlenswert sind die beiden Knaller "Train To An Island" und "Hurricane", auf denen absolut brilliante Gitarrenarbeit geboten wird (die meisten Musiker sind immerhin gestandene Krautrock-Profis). Unverstдndlich, warum diese beiden Stьcke keine kommerziellen Hits wurden.




Wallenstein

Musicians: Jьrgen Dollase (keyboards), Kim Merz (vocals), Terry Park (bass), Charly Terstappen (drums), Michael Dommers (guitar), Pete Brough (guitar)

The band Wallenstein was formed in Mцnchengladbach and published 5 excellent progressive albums between 1971 and 1975. The best one is "Mother Universe", which was published in 1972 on the Pilz label. "Charlene" was a big success for the band as single and as LP and is from the self-titled album which was published in 1978 on the RCA label. This album is a clear break with the music played on the predecessors.


Weed

Musicians: Peet Becker (drums), Ken Hensley (keyboards), Reinhold Spiegelfeld (bass), Bernd Hohmann (vocals), Werner Monka (guitar)

The first and only self-titled album of Weed was published in 1971 on the Philips label. Uriah Heep's keyboarder Ken Hensley used the creative break between the albums "Salisbury" and "Look At Yourself" to play keyboards on this album under the pseudonym "Ken Lesley". The music is progressive hardrock and very similar to the early Uriah Heep.


Wonderland - Moscow

Musicians: Achim Reichel (guitar, piano, bass, vocals), Frank Dostal (vocals, bass, bongos, organ), Helmut Franke (guitar, bass, banjo), Dicky Tarrach (drums), Leslie Humphries (piano, sax, organ)

The band Wonderland was founded in 1968. Their motto was to create sophisticated pop music. The song "Moscow", which was produced by James Last, a famous German big-band leader for approximately 40 years, was a giant success. In 1971, Achim Reichel and Frank Dostal founded "Wonderland Band" whose music was much more progressive.


Udo Lindenberg

Musicians: Udo Lindenberg (vocals, drums), Carl G. Stephan (bass), Roger Hook (acoustic guitar, mandolin), Thomas Kretschmer (guitars)

Udo Lindenberg played as drummer in many import bands (Passport, Emergency, Kravetz), before he published his first album "Lindenberg" in 1971 on the Telefunken label. His next album "Daumen im Wind" was published in 1972 on the Telefunken label, and from that time on he continued with German lyrics. It's thanks to Udo that German lyrics in rock music weere finally accepted. The song "Andrea Dorea" is from the album "Andrea Dorea", which was published in 1973 and was the final breakthrough for Udo.


Yatha Sidhra

Musicians: Rolf Fichter (moog, flute, vibes, guitar, vocals), Klaus Fichter (drums, percussion), Matthias Nicolai (guitar, bass)

Yatha Sidhras first and only album was published on the Brain label in 1973. The music is a cosmic Krautrock orgy with ethnic and jazzy elements.

The Hamburg band Atlantis was founded in late summer 1972 by Inga Rumpf, Jean-Jacques Kravetz and Karl-Heinz Schott. These musicians played in the successor band Frumpy before.

The tracks "Garden of loneliness" and "Sitting in the forest" are from Cravinkel's second and last album, which has nothing in common with their excellent debut album. Instead of short melodic tunes, Cravinkel play three very long and interesting tracks with very interesting improvisations. The multiple vocals are strange, rough and good. The music is a mix of American sounding folk and progressive rock. Special emphasis is given to frequent double guitar soli. All in all, "Garden of loneliness" is a must for every Krautrock fan. The album was published in 1972 on the Philips label.


Electric Sandwich

Jцrg Ohlert (guitar, organ, Mellotron), Klaus Lormann (bass), Jochen Carthaus (vocals, sax, harmonica), Wolf Fabian (drums)

The Bonn band Electric Sandwich published their sole album in 1972 on the Brain label. The music is similar to the style of Thirsty Moon or Rufus Zuphall.

The tracks "Something yellow" and "Today" are from Eloy's debut album with the legendary trashcan gimmix cover, which has nothing in common with the bombastic music of the succeeding albums. On this album, the Hannover band plays rough and interesting Krautrock. Like the lp, the cd version of this album is has become a wanted rarity.

Embryo

Christian Burchard (drums), Dave King (bass), Jцrg Evers (bass), Edgar Hofmann (sax, violin), Mal Waldron (e-piano), Jimmy Jackson (organ), Siegfried Schwab (guitar).

The Munic band Embryo is one of the most interesting, flexible und important Krautrock bands which havs been on the scene since 1970. On almost every album you find different musicians and musical styles. On their first albums, they play an exciting mix of underground, Krautrock and jazz. On their later albums, the music turns to jazzrock with oriental influences. At the end of the 70's, Embryo caused attention through their 8 month lasting journey from Munich to Calcutta, which was filmed by movie maker Werner Penzel. The track "Warm canto" is from the album "Rock session", which was published in 1973 on the Brain label.

The folk duo Emtidi, consisting of the German Maik Hirschfeldt and the Canadian Dolly Holmes, published two albums between 1970 and 1972. While the first Album "Emtidi" contains relatively simple folk, the second album "Saat" is, also due to the support of studio engineer Dieter Dierks on the mellotrone, a Krautrock gem. The beautiful track "Die Reise" is from the album "Saat", which was published in 1972 on the Pilz label. For once, Maik Hirschfeldt takes care for the unusual vocals and Dieter Dierks plays a nice mellotron solo.

Epitaph

Cliff Jackson (guitar, vocals), Klaus Walz (guitar, vocals), Bernd Kolbe (bass, vocals), Jim McGillivray (drums, vocals)

The Dortmund band Epitaph, who meanwhile published the new album "Remember the daze" in 2007, is a German-British band who play British styled hardrock with nice double lead guitars. Although being no typical Krautrock band, they were and still are a desired live act at many festival in the 70's. The tracks "Crossroads" and "Stop look and listen" are from their second album "Stop, Look And Listen", which was published in 1972 on the Polydor label. After the excellent third Album "Outside The Law" from 1974, which has a similar quality than the first Wishbone Ash albums, their music turned more commercial.

Faust

Werner Diermaier (drums), Joachim Irmler (keyboards), Jean-Herve Peron (bass, guitars, vocals), Rudolf Sosna (guitar, keyboards), Gunther Wьsthof (sax, sound effects)

Faust, who were the product of the journalist Uwe Nettelbeck, where sponsored by the Polydor label with a huge amount money. They moved into an old schoolhouse in the city of Wьmme and stayed there for one year, where they created their self-titled debut album, extraordinary and crazy masterpiece even for today's standards, which received a very bad response by the music press. Their second album "So Far", which was published in 1972 on the Polydor label, was finally successful in England, where it reached number 13 in the charts. The album had a black cover and contained 9 beautiful picture inserts, each of them illustrating one track. The tracks "It's a rainy day, sunshine girl" and "No harm" are from the album "So far".


Frumpy

Inga Rumpf (vocals, acoustic guitar), Jean-Jacques Kravetz (keyboards), Carsten Bohn (drums, percussion), Karl-Heinz Schott (bass), Rainer Baumann (guitar, steel guitar), Erwin Kania (keyboard)

The Hamburg Band Frumpy originated out of the band City Preachers. They played excellent hard bluesrock with progressive, experimental and classical elements. Their trademark were the remarkable voice of Inga Rumpf and the outstanding keyboard playing of Jean-Jaques Kravetz. On their debut album, they got along without a guitar player, keyboards where the dominating instrument. On the succeeding albums, Rainer Baumann (Sphinx Tush) joined them as guitar player. Unfortunately, Frumpy disbanded after 3 studio and 1 live album. Some of the former members founded the band "Atlantis". The track "I'm afraid big moon" is from their third album "By the way", which was published in 1973 on the Vertigo label. It does not reach the amazing quality of their second album "Frumpy 2", but nevertheless contains some of their very best tracks, which makes a purchase of this album obligatory. Even the cd version of "By the way" is meanwhile a wanted rarity!

Gomorrha

Eberhard Krietsch (organ, piano), Gerd Pohl (drums), Mike Eulner (bass)

Unfortunately, the Cologne band Gomorrha published only two albums. The track "Opening the sealed book" convinces with a brutally simple guitar riff and sprawling speech singing. It is from Gomorrha's second and last album "I Turned To See Whose Voice It Was", which was published in 1972 on the Brain label. This album is a milestone of progressive rock and is entirely different to their debut album "Trauma" from 1971, where they play an interesting mix of rock and beat.

When guitar player Paul Vincent, who played with Missus Beastly, met the English drummer Keith Forsey, who was in Amon Dььl at that time, they decided to give up the whole German psychedelic rock shit and to their own British thing. With the help of two English guest musicians, the sole album was produced in the London Trident studio. The track "Hallelulah - signs of strange" is from this album, which was published in 1971 on the Metronome label. Due to a lack of support from their record company, Hallelujah disbanded shortly after.


Improved Sound Limited

Johnny Fickert (vocals, percussion, flute, alto sax), Axel Linstдdt (guitars, keyboards, vocals), Uli Ruppert (bass), Rolf Grцschner (drums)

Kin Ping Meh

Kalle Weber (drums, percussion), Torsten Herzog (bass, vocals), Frieder Schmitt (keyboards), Willie Wagner (guitars, mouth organ, vocals), Werner Stephan (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, percussion)

The most interesting albums of the Mannheim band Kin Ping Meh, whose name originates from the title of an adventurous Chinese novel, are their self-titled debut album from 1971 as well its successor "No. 2" from 1972. The music is an exciting mix of poprock and progressive and psychedelic elements. On their later albums, which where much more commercial, the ex 2066 & Then singer Geff Harrison joined them as singer. The tracks "Drugson's Trip" and "Sometimes" are from the first album, which was published in 1971 on the Polydor label.

From this album, we introduce the track "Rapunzel" which has never been published before!

Kraan

Hellmut Hattler (bass), Peter Wolbrandt (guitar), Jan Fride (drums), Johannes A. Pappert (sax)

The band Kraan is one of the oldest German bands. Since the year 2000, they are playing live again and are producing new studio albums as well. Only their first albums can be classified as "Krautrock". On their later albums they turned to elegant jazzrock. The excellent self-titled debut album was recorded in 1972 in a farm house in Wintrup in the county of Westfalen, where the band lived as a commune for several years. It contains interesting jazz rock with Krautrock, Arabian and progressive elements. The track "Mind quake" is from their second album "Wintrup", which was published in 1973 on the Spiegelei label. In my opinion, this is the best Kraan album.

Kravetz

With the help of Thomas Kretzschmer (Dennis, Udo Lindenberg) on lead guitar and Udo Lindenberg (Motherhood, Emergency, Niagara) on drums, five partially very long tracks where recorded, that left plenty of space for interesting improvisations.

Liliental was a studio project of the Cluster musician Dieter Moebius. The music is electronically with jazzy and esotheric influences and would be the perfect soundtrack for living on a lonely island.

In 2002, the Longhair label published the album "SFW-Session" on cd with tracks that My Solid Ground played live in the studio of the radio station Sьdwestfunk in 1971.

The Berlin band of the multi instrumentalist Stephan Kaske published their impressing debьt album "Mythos" in 1971 on the Ohr label. The music is psychedelic spacerock with experimental elements.

Novalis

Heino Schьnzel (bass) Jьrgen Wenzel (vocals, acoustic guitar) Lutz Rahn (organ, piano, mellotron, synthesizer) Hartwig Biereichel (drums, percussion)

The tracks "Laughing" and "High evolution" are from the debut album "Banished bridge" of the Hamburg band, which was published in 1973 on the Brain label. The lyrics are, in contrast to all following albums, in English language. Musically, it is the most progressive and best album of the Band.

The Berlin band Os Mundi was supposed to be the first rock bigband and had up to twelve members. Their debut album "Latin mass" was published in 1971 on the Metronome label. The lyrics were in Latin language! The music is an interesting mix of dominant keyboards, hard guitar and strange vocals. From this album, we introduce the tracks "Overtьre", "Kyrie" and "Sanctus".

The track "Ich mache einen Spiegel Part 4" is from this album, which was published in 1971 on the Liberty label. Later, Florian Fricke turned away from electronics and reformed Popol Vuh.


Professor Wolfff

Klaus Peter Schweitzer (guitar, piano, vocals), Romi Schickle (organ, vocals), Mondo Zech (bass, vocals), Michael Sametinger (drums), Fritz Herrmann (lead guitar, vocals, harmonica)

The track "Das Zimmer" is from the sole album of the Ulm Band "Prof. Wolfff" that was published in 1972 on the Metronome label. The album was produced by Jonas Porst (son of Foto Porst), who was also the manager and producer of Ihre Kinder and thus the right man for a rock production with German lyrics. Professor Wolfff where something like the progressive version of Ihre Kinder. Their excellent lyrics where wrapped in solid progressive rock.

Randy Pie

Dicky Tarrach (drums), Manfred "Tissy" Thiers (bass, vocals), Werner Becker (keyboards, vocals), Bernd Wippich (guitar, vocals)

The Hamburg band Randy Pie was formed in 1973 by ex Rattles, Petards and Gash musicians. They play a technically absolutely perfect mix of rock, Jazz and Soul. The track "Luie" is from their debut album, which was published in 1973 on the Zebra label.

The track "Schupfner" is from their second and last album "Phallobst", which was published also in 1971, this time on the Pilz label. The record company labeled the music as "new German folk music" (i. e. on the legendary Rapunzel-Compilation), which was absolutely justified. Rufus Zuphall play excellent progressive folk with a good dose of rock, which sometimes reminds of Jethro Tull.

Scorpions

Michael Schenker (guitar), Klaus Meine (vocals), Rudolf Schenker (guitar), Wolfgang Dziony (drums), Lothar Heimberg (bass)

The Scorpions on a Krautrock sampler? Many Scorpions fans do not know, that the debut album "Lonesome Crow" of the Hannover band Scorpions, which was published in 1971 on the Brain label, is a masterpiece of progressive hardrock. From this album, we introduce the tracks "Lonesome crow" and "I'm going mad". Their later albums got more and more straightforward / linear and commercial.

Klaus Schulze

Klaus Schulze (keyboards, synthesizers)

Klaus Schulze is one of the most influential German musicians. Having played drums on the first Tangerine Dream album "Electronic Meditation" in 1969 and on the first self-titled Ash Ra Tempel in 1971, he concentrated on his solo work.

Band leader Bernd Zamulo was the bass player of the Lords from 1965 to 1971, until he left them in order to realize his musical ideas. The music is obviously influenced by American influences and could be described as Westcoast with a German touch. If you like the excellent "Catch a singing bird on the road" album of the Nьrnberg band Improved Sound Limited, you will definitely grow fond of "Trip away", too. The tracks sound like Grateful Dead, Neil Yound or the Byrds, with nice psychedelic influences. From this album, we introduce the titel track "Trip away".

The provocative cover (giant grasshopper eating little babies as the Pope watches) attracted much attention.

Apocalypse / Die Anderen

Jьrgen Drews (vocals, lead guitar), Gerd Mьller (vocals, guitar), Enrico Lombardi (vocals, bass), Bernd Scheffler (vocals, drums)

The band Die Anderen, who later changed their name to Apocalypse, originated from a talent competition, a "beat band ball", which occurred in the city of Kiel in 1966. There, Jьrgen Drews (lead guitar, vocals) met the competition winner Chimes Of Freedom. The track "Let it die" is from the album "Apocalypse" (Ariola, 1968).

Dschinn originated from the band "Dischas" and published only one album "Dschinn" (Bacillus, 1972). They played hard-rock, their singer and their lead guitarplayer were amazing. The track "Rock'n Roll Dschinny" was only published on the 2-LP compilation "Mama Rock And The Sons Of Rock'n Roll" (Bacillus, 1976).

Dzyan

Eddy Marron (guitars, saz, tambura, mellotrone, voice), Reinhard Karwatky (electric bass, double bass, super string, mellotrone, synthesizer), Peter Giger (drums, percussion)

Wolfgang Dauner on a Krautrock compilation once again? Sure! The debut album of Et Cetera cannot be compared with any other Wolfgang Dauner record. Even the other Et Cetera albums sound entirely different. "Et Cetera" is a crazy Krautrock avant-garde jazz record. This is no jazz-rock at all! We introduce the tracks "Lady Blue" and "Mellodrama Nr. 2 A".

Eulenspygel

Detlev Nottrodt (guitar, vocals), James Thurow (guitar, violin), Cornelius Hauptmann (flute), Karl-Heinz Großhans (organ, vocals), Ronny Libal (bass), Mulo Maulbetsch (vocals, harmonica), Gьnter Klinger (drums)

Eulenspygel was one of the first German bands who dared the transfer from English to German lyrics. The critical lyrics are doubtful on state and society. The tracks "Die Wunde bleibt" and "Staub auf deinem Haar" are from the album "2" (Spiegelei, 1971), whose scandal cover with the burned chicken was replaced by less provocative version.

Fashion Pink

Roland Schaeffer (guitar, bass, vocals, saxophones, vibraphone), Eddy von Overheidt (organ, electric piano, clavinet, vocals), Rainer Bodensohn (bass, flute), Joachim Koinzer (drums, percussion)

Fashion Pink, established in 1968, played lively and powerful hard progressive rock. In 1969, the German radio station SWF started to look for talented upcoming bands. Fashion Pink was the first of many young bands who could participate in the recording sessions. Between 1970 and 1971, they were invited four times in order to record under live studio conditions. At the end of 1970, they decided to change the name to "Fashion Prick". Because it was impossible to get a record contract with this name, they choose the name "Brainstorm" instead. In 1972, Brainstorm finally published their first record "Smile a while" on the Spiegelei label. The track "Brainstorming" is from the album "... to brainstorm" (Longhair, 2000), which contains some of the SWF recordings.

Faust

Werner Diermaier, Joachim Irmler, Jean-Herve Peron, Rudolf Sosna, Gunther Wьsthof

Faust were the product of the journalist Uwe Nettelbeck. The idea was to create a band that could match with Can and Kraftwerk. Six almost unknown musicians moved into an old schoolhouse in the city of Wьmme and stayed there for one year, sponsored by the Polydor label with a huge amount of money. In 1971, they created their self-titled debut album, an extraordinary and crazy masterpiece even for today's standards, which received a very bad response by the German music press. Their single Jennifer (from the So Far album) reached position 13 in the UK charts instead. The track "The sad skinhead" is from their fourth album "IV", released in 1973 by Virgin Records who hyped and advertised it using the term "Krautrock".

Floh De Cologne

Hansi Frank (drums, organ), Dieter Klemm (rhythm, bass), Markus Schmidt (bass, guitar, organ), Dick Stдdtler (guitar, organ, bass), Gerd Wollschon (rhythm, organ)

The band from Witten was established in 1969. In 1971, they published their debut album "Sensemann", which consisted of only two long tracks with German lyrics. The track "Peterlied" is from their second album "Rock in Deutsch" (Zebra, 1973), the track "Bock auf Rock" from their third one "Wir haben Bock auf Rock" (Aladin, 1977). However, we introduce the original single version, the B-side of the single "Au Weia, Mensch Meier" (Philips, 1975).

Guru Guru

Mani Neumeier (drums, percussion, vocals), Uli Trepte (bass), Ax Genrich (guitar)

Like Birth Control, Guru Guru celebrated their 40-year jubilee in 2008. The band of the drummer Mani Neumeier had a lot of crew changes. The track "Der LSD-Marsch" is from their debut album "UFO" (Ohr, 1972) and keeps the promise the title suggests.

Hairy Chapter

Rudolf Oldenburg (bass), Harry Unte (vocals), Harry Titlbach (guitar), Rudi Haubold (drums)

The band from Bonn published two albums. The scope ranged from psychedelic blues-rock to progressive tracks. The track "It must be an officer's daughter" is from their second album "Can't get through" (Bacillus, 1971).

Haze

Dietmar Lцw (bass), Heinz Schwab (solo guitar), Hans-Jьrg Frei (organ, guitar), Christian Scherler (vocals), Kurt Frei (drums)

The gimmix sleeve (it looks like a color slide) of the sole album "Hazecolor Dia" (Bacillus, 1971) was created by designer Walter Seyffer, who also created the cover of the Nine Days Wonder debut album and was their singer, too. Haze play interesting hard-rock that reminds of the music of early Nektar or Message. The vocalist has a weird, but interesting voice. We introduce the track "Fast career".

Hoelderlin

Michael Bruchmann (drums, percussion), Christian Grumbkow (acoustic & electric guitar), Joachim Grumbkow (grand piano, organ, hohner string vox, flute, hohner clavinet, mellotron &), Peter Kдseberg (bass), Joachim Kдseberg (guitars and stagesound), Christoph Noppeney (viola, acoustic guitar

The band was established in 1970. Their first album "Hoelderlins Traum" (Pilz, 1972) has German lyrics and is a Krautrock classic. From the second album "Hoelderlin" (Spiegelei, 1975) on, the lyrics are English, instead of folkrock with psychedelic elements they play progressive rock that reminds of King Crimson or Genesis. The track "Nьrnberg" is from the album "Hoelderlin".

Jerusalem

Matthias Stein (guitar, vocals), Gьnther Rьffel (guitar), Richard Reß (bass), Wolfgang Hilgert (bass), Bernd Lewandowski (drums)

Jud's Gallery play a mix of melodic rock, hard-rock and folk. Some tracks, in which a violin is used, remind of Parzival. Apart from that, I take the liberty to compare the music with UFO during their "Phenomenon" phase or early Wishbone Ash. We introduce the track "Follow me".

Krokodil

Walty Anselmo (lead guitar, acoustic guitar, bass, sitar, lead vocals), Dьde Dьrst (drums, percussion, vocals), Terry Stevens (bass, electric guitar, klavino, lead vocals), Mojo Weideli (harp, flute, vocals)

The Swiss band published five excellent albums between 1969 and 1973, which attracted interest abroad due to their progressive arrangements.

Mammut

Klaus Schnur (guitars, vocals), Peter Schnur (guitars, vocals), Rainer Hoffmann (piano, organs), Tilo Herrmann (bass, flute, vocals), Gьnter Seiler (drums, percussion)

Pacific Sound

Roger Page (keyboards), Diego Lecci (drums), Mark Treuthardt (guitars, bass), Chris Meyer (vocals)

Peter Baumann

Peter Baumann, members of the Philharmonic Orchestra Munich

As a member of Tangerine Dream, Peter Bauman participated in the creation of an important chapter of German rock history.

The "psychedelic hard-rockers" from Frankfurt originated from the band "Second Life". They published two albums on the Bacillus label. The music is not adequate for the sophisticated listener, however it has its moments.

Toto Blanke

Toto Blanke (synthesizer, moog, bass, guitar), Jasper van't Hof (organ), Edvard Vesala (drums)

His next album "Daumen im Wind" was released in 1972 on the Telefunken label as well, and from that time on he continued with German lyrics. Thanks to Udo that German lyrics in rock music were finally accepted. The track "Cowboy Rocker" is from the album "Ball Pompцs" (Telefunken, 1974). The famous German comedian Otto Waalkes and the singer Inga Rumpf appear on this album as guests. Udo is still excellent in his business. His one and only number one album was released - this year 2008!

Violence Fog

Wolfgang Hцfer (vocals, flute), Karl-Heinz Hцfer (guitar, flute, vocals), Enno Dernov (guitar), Hilmar Beine (bass), Herbert Brandmeier (drums)

Violence Fog were established in 1969 from members of other bands in the Baden-Baden area. Soon they were able to perform successful live performances. Besides their own compositions, cover versions from "Brother where are you" (Remo Four) and "Paint it black" (Rolling Stones) belonged to their repertoire. In 1971 they recorded some tracks at the SWF radio studio, published on the album "Violence Fog / Jerusalem" (Longhair, 2001, first publication). We introduce the track "Rolli Zink".

Virus

J. Dieter Krahe (organ), Wolfgang Rieke (drums), Axel Nieling (drums), Jьrgen Schдfer (bass, vocals), Bernd Rosner (guitar), Werner Vogt (bass, guitar, vocals)

Virus came from the Bielefeld area and published two albums with different members. While the debut album "Revelation" (BASF, 1970) consisted of never ending tracks with spacy excursions, the second album "Thoughts" is more song-oriented and a very exciting album. The track "King Heroin" is from the album "Thoughts" (Pilz, 1971).

Wallenstein

Jьrgen Dollase (keyboards, lead vocals), Harald Grosskopf (drums, percussion), Bill Barone (guitars, vocals), Jerry Berkers (bass, lead vocals)

Before they became a commercial pop group Wallenstein from Mцnchengladbach published five interesting progressive rock albums between 1971 and 1977. The track "Braintrain" is from their best record "Mother Universe" (Pilz, 1972), as well as "Golden antenna". Grosskopf, Dollase and Berkers played as guest musicians on many Ohr and Kosmische Kuriere productions.

Walpurgis

Manfred Stadelmann (drums, vocal), Jьrgen Dollase (keyboards*), Ryszard Kalemba (guitar), George Frьchtenicht (congas, flute), Jerzy Sokolowski (guitar, vocals)

The musicians Bernd Witthьser & Walter Westrupp published four studio and one live album between 1970 and 1973. The duo sang in German, which was unique and adventurous for this period of German rock music. The track "Wenn ich ein wenig frцhlicher wдr" is from the first album "Von Nonnen, Vampiren und Toten" (Ohr, 1970), which was named only Bernd Witthьser as the artist. The track "Das Mдrchen vom Kцnigssohn" is from the album "Bauer Plath" (Pilz, 1972), which included, amongst others, three musicians of Wallenstein.

Wolfgang Dauner

Wolfgang Dauner (piano, organ, vocals), Pierre Cavalli (guitar), Siegfried Schwab (guitar, sitar), Roland Wittich (drums, vocals), Eberhard Weber (bass, cello, vocals)

The album "The OIMELS" (MPS, 1970) is an insider tip for Krautrock lovers. Wolfgang Dauner broke all the rules and presented himself as psychedelic-jazz-pop-band. It is an extraordinary album in all respects with fuzz guitar, sitar sounds and other freakouts. Even the Beatles track "A day in the life" is covered. "The oimels" is the answer to the desire of the former MPS-Records boss to enter musical virgin soil. We introduce the track "Take off your clothes to feel the setting sun".

A. R. & Machines

Achim Reichel (all instruments)

In order to realize own ideas, Achim Reichel started a solo career. He concentrated on meditative rock improvisations. The album "Die Grьne Reise" (The Green Journey) was the first result of this electronic psychedelic music project "A.R. & Machines". There are two minds when it comes to "A.R. & Machines". For some listeners it is ingenious Krautrock. For the others it sounds like a test operation of echo equipment. We introduce the tracks "I'll Be Your Singer - You'll Be My Song" and "Globus" from this album (Polydor, 1971).

Anyone's Daughter

Matthias Ulmer (keyboards), Gьnther Konopik (drums), Uwe Karpa (guitar), Harald Bareth (bass)

Anyone's Daughter were established in 1971 in Stuttgart. They were clearly influenced by the symphonic progressive rock of that period and soon became the favorite of many prog fans. The track "Blue House" is from their first album "Adonis" (Brain, 1978).

The Munich band Embryo is one of the most interesting, flexible und important Krautrock bands which have been on the scene since 1970. You find different musicians and musical styles on almost every album. On their first albums, they play an exciting mix of underground, Krautrock and jazz, while later the music turns to jazz-rock with oriental influences. At the end of the 70's, Embryo caused attention through their eight month lasting journey from Munich to Calcutta, which was filmed by movie maker Werner Penzel. The track "Es Ist Wie's" is from the album "Embryo's Reise" (Schneeball, 1979), which was recorded during this journey. The track "Opal" is from Embryo's debut album "Opal" (Ohr, 1970).

The folk duo Emtidi, consisting of the German Maik Hirschfeldt and the Canadian Dolly Holmes, published two albums between 1970 and 1972. While the first Album "Emtidi" contains relatively simple folk, the second album "Saat" is, also due to the support of studio engineer Dieter Dierks on the mellotron, a Krautrock gem. From this album (Pilz, 1972) we introduce the track "Trдume".


Faust

Werner Diermaier, Joachim Irmler, Jean-Herve Peron, Rudolf Sosna, Gunther Wьsthof

Faust, who were the product of the journalist Uwe Nettelbeck, were sponsored by the Polydor label with a huge amount of money. They moved into an old schoolhouse in the city of Wьmme and stayed there for one year, where they created their self-titled debut album, an extraordinary and crazy masterpiece even for today's standards, which received a very bad response by the music press. Their fourth album "IV" (Virgin, 1973), was finally successful in England, where it reached number 13 in the charts. We introduce the track "Jennifer" from this album.


Flaming Bess

Joachim Jansen (organ, e-violin, synthesizer, piano, clavinet), Peter Wahle (drums, gong, bells, rhythm machine, e-guitar), Hans Wende (bass, guitar, clavinet, drums)

The band published their debut album "Tanz der Gцtter" in 1979 as private pressing.
The record companies first did not realize the musical potential of the band until their single "Tanz der Gцtter" was in the top positions of the Schlagerrallye, one of the most important radio chart shows of that time. The album got excellent reviews and was sold more than 36,000 times. We introduce the track "Tanz der Gцtter" from their debut album.

Franz K. was established in 1969. Their debut album "Sensemann" (Philips, 1971) had German lyrics and consisted of two side-long tracks. It is a very fine example of psychedelic hard rock. From this album, we introduce the title track "Sensemann".

The tracks "Rio Bravo 59" and "Catch A Singing Bird On The Road" are from their second album "Catch A Singing Bird On The Road" (CBS, 1973).

Kraan

Hellmut Hattler (bass), Peter Wolbrandt (guitar), Jan Fride (drums), Johannes A. Pappert (sax)

The band Kraan is one of the oldest German bands. In 2000, they started playing live again and are producing new studio albums as well. Only their first albums can be classified as "Krautrock". On their later albums they turned to elegant jazz-rock. The excellent self-titled debut album was recorded in 1972 in a farm house in Wintrup in the county of Westfalen, where the band lived as a commune for several years. It contains interesting jazz-rock with Krautrock, Arabian and progressive elements. The track "Wintrup" is from their second album "Wintrup" (Spiegelei, 1973).

The tracks are shorter, less heavy and experimental and contain a few jazz-rock elements.

Achim Schmidt (drums, vocals), Andreas Scholz (bass), Wolfgang Rumler (guitar, vocals), Wolf-Rьdiger Uhlig (organ, cembalo, piano, vocals)

Their best work is their debut album "The Boat Of Thoughts" (Sky, 1976), from which we introduce the title track "First Flight Of The Owl".

Wolfgang Riechmann (vocals, violin, guitar, electric piano, bass, synthesizers, sequencer), Hans Schweiß (drums*)

Well-known because of his work with Streetmark, Wolfgang Riechmann started to work on his solo career in 1978. The result was the album "Wunderbar" (Sky, 1978), from which we introduce the track "Silberland". Shortly after the completion of the album, he was stabbed by two drunkards without a reason.

Rother, Michael

Michael Rother (guitars, electric piano, bass, synthesizer, organ, electronic percussion), Jaki Liebezeit (drums*)

In 1971 Michael Rother had an appearance in the German TV show Beat-Club. From 1971 to 1975 he played with Klaus Dinger in the band Neu!. From 1973 to 1976, the cooperation with Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius in the band Harmonia leads to two album releases. In 1977, Michael Rother had his breakthrough with his first solo album "Flammende Herzen". We introduce the tracks "Feuerland" from the album "Flammende Herzen" (Sky, 1976), "Katzenmusik 9" from the album "Katzenmusik" (Sky, 1979) and "Sonnenrad" from the album "Sterntaler" (Sky, 1977).

Rufus Zuphall

Gьnter Krause (guitars, mellotron, vocals), Thomas Kittel (guitars, clavinet), Manfred Spangenberg (bass), Klaus Gьlden (flute), Udo Dahmen (drums, percussion)

Rufus Zuphall from Aachen played progressive rock with folk elements, which occasionally reminds of early Jethro Tull due to the use of the flute. The tracks "Portland Town" and "I'm On My Way" are from their second album "Phallobst" (Pilz, 1971).

Schultz, Ernst

Ernst Schultz (vocals, 12-string guitar, mandolin), Jack Grunsky (harmonica, guitar*), Theo Bina (guitar*), Tommi Roeder (organ, piano*), Sonny Hennig (piano*), Walti Schneider (bass, accordion*), Gьnther Storch (drums*), Wolf Stumm (guitar, sitar*), Schnurrer (violin*)

After the split of Ihre Kinder, Ernst Schultz published his solo album "Paranoia Picknick" (Kuckuck, 1971). We introduce the track "XY".

Shaa Khan

Roland Soltysiak (guitars), Jochen Gutermuth (bass), Horst Schlechtriemen (keyboards, choir), Walter Kaulhausen (drums, choir), Heiner Waldmann (vocals, acoustic guitar), Klaus Grandt (vocals, percussion)

Shaa Khan from Duisburg were established in 1970 as school band. 1974 they became a consistent rock formation. 1977 they went to the Dierks studio in order to record their debut album "The World Will End On A Friday" (Sky, 1978). We introduce the track "The World Will End On A Friday".

Straight Shooter

Georg Buschmann (vocals), Hans Plankert (keyboards), Gьnther Striepling (guitar), Roland Haase (bass), Friedhelm Misiejuk (drums), Paradise Singers (vocals)

The hard rock band from Dьsseldorf released their debut album in 1976. Their guitar player and vocalist Georg Buschmann worked with Streetmark before, the drummer Friedhelm Misiejuk with Prosper. The track "My Time - Your Time" is from the album "My Time - Your Time" (Sky, 1980).

Streetmark

Dorothea Raukes (keyboards, vocals), Manfred Knauf (bass), Wolfgang Riechmann (vocals, synthesizer, guitar), Thomas Schreiber (guitar), Hans Schweiß (drums, percussion)

Streetmark were established in 1969. Their debut album was released in 1976, followed by four more albums with partly strongly changed crews. The track "Dreams" is from their second album "Eileen" (Sky, 1977), the track "Lovers" from their third album "Dry" (Sky, 1979).

Tangerine Dream

Edgar Froese, Chris Franke, Steve Joliffe

The Berlin band is an important pioneer on the area of electronic music. We introduce the track "Rising Runner Missed By Endless Sender" from the album "Cyclone" (Virgin, 1978). This album is very special because it was the first time that Tangerine Dream used vocals! They were not satisfied with the result and it took several years until they used vocals again.


Thirsty Moon

Norbert Drogies (drums, percussion), Michael Kobs (electric piano), Erwin Noack (congas, percussion), Willi Pape (sopran sax, tenor sax, clarinet, flute, percussion), Harald Konietzko (bass, 12 string guitar, vocals), Jьrgen Drogies (guitar, percussion), Hans Werner Ranwig (organ, percussion, vocals)

The band from Bremen released five albums between 1972 and 1981. The music is a blend of rock, jazz and fusion. The track "Big City" is from their debut album "Thirsty Moon" (Brain, 1972), the track "Lord Of Lightning" from the Album "Blitz" (Brain, 1976).


Ton Steine Scherben

Ralph Mцbius (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Ralph Steitz (guitar), Wolfgang Seidel (drums), Kai Sichtermann (bass)

Ton Steine Scherben was the most important political rock band of the early 70's! The track "Macht kaputt was euch kaputt macht" is from their debut album "Warum geht es mir so dreckig?" (privat pressing, 1970), the track "Der Traum ist aus" is from the album "Keine Macht fьr niemand" (David Volksmund, 1972).

Triumvirat

Helmut Koellen (bass, guitars, vocals), Hans Bathelt (percussion), Jьrgen Fritz (organ, synthesizer, pianos, vocals), Hans Pape (bass*), Cologne Opera House Orchestra (violins, violas, celli*), Kurt Edelhagen Brass Section Kurt Edelhagen Brass Section (trumpets, tenor sax, trombones*)

The Cologne classic rock band Triumvirat around the talented keyboarder Jьrgen Fritz was dismissed as a German Emerson Lake & Palmer clone. We introduce the track "Illusions On A Double Dimple" from the album "Illusions On A Double Dimple" (Harvest, 1974). The long and complicated keyboard parts show clear similarity with ELP!


Witthьser & Westrupp

Bernd Witthьser (guitars, vocals, percussion), Walter Westrupp (flute, vocals, percussion, trumpet, zither, guitar, trombone), Bernd Roland (bass, vocals), Renee Zucker (vocals, percussion, flute*), Dieter Dierks, Gille Lettmann

The musicians Bernd Witthьser & Walter Westrupp published four studio and one live album between 1970 and 1973. The duo sang in German, which was unique and adventurous for this period of German rock music. We introduce the track "Orienta" from the album "Trips + Trдume" (Ohr, 1971).

Re: VA – Krautrock: Music for your Brain Vol. 1-3

Встречал в сети данную компиляцию, и не раз. Даже скачивал, впервые увидев, но затем также оперативно и удалил. Почему? Потому что большая часть групп на этой компиляции отношение к крауту имеет весьма отдаленное, если вообще имеет. Да, несомненно, есть и достойные исполнители на данной компиляции, но к сожалению их меньшинство. Признаться честно, парочку групп я для себя в свое время открыл именно благодаря этой компиляции. В качестве ознакомительного метриала данный релиз возможно и подойдет, но главное, чтобы слушатель не запутался и не сделал неверные выводы о краутроке. Но вообще за тему спасибо
Хоть не я один такой оказался

Извините, я на форуме недавно совсем. Поэтому не знал. Жалко,что так получилось. В принципе, можно тему удалить тогда.

Re: VA – Krautrock: Music for your Brain Vol. 1-3

Фантом, не дезинформируй человека частей, вроде бы, всего 4; мои заливки давно сдохли "благодаря" падению БМЗ и вообще не имеют никакого отношения к форуму Неформата.

Сама же компиляция любопытна хотя бы тем, что проводит интереснейший экскурс в огромный пласт музыкальной культуры Германии указанных лет, но краута там, действительно, чуть.

ну я просто помню, что частей было больше 3-х, и я не говорил о том, что твои заливки были на неформате - я же чётко написал, что ты выкладывала в БМЗ.

ну попутал, извините уж, склероз.

Не думаю, что для неформатчиков очевидно, что это какой-то неведомый БМЗ

Ребят, все понял. Завтра залью четвертую сборку, т.к всего четыре сборки по шесть дисков в каждой - итого получается, что должно быть 24 диска в 4 частях ( по 6 в каждой).
