I don't let that thread die without fighting! :madra:  Thanks go out to goobs. :cool:

Not exactly Krautrock, but the new album from Samsara Blues Experiment is a monster of German heavy-psych-blues-rock and more! The album (One With The Universe) can't be labeled just with one genre. It's full of 70's influences, including doomy, stoner elements and atmospheric prog... Just brilliant!

Hey BigBobby!
Sorry it's taken me so long to get back about these. I listened to the Eloy and then a whole buncha bullsh1t came up.
Really good drumming on Eloy btw. Kinda Peart-y.
Nektar was all over the place! At first sort of hippy, Moody Blues-y, and then things got a little more King Crimson.
You listen to some freaky stuff, young man!
:ebert:

Although it's not Krautrock, Nektar reminded me at times of this:

This is my go to Krautrock track. Great to immerse yourself in for a while. Particularly when staring down from a window on a plane flight....

Thank god the genre isn't dead at all! The new Mouth album is out of this world! The Uriah Heep homage at the beginning is stellar!
Enjoy!  :smoke:  :hail:

Here's another great example for the weirdness in Krautrock. Lucifer's Friend was a band that had a great run in the first half of the seventies, and they even smelled a bit of success in the US. Cleveland radio station WMMS (story sounds familiar) pushed their debut in 1970 to the second best-selling album (directly behind Pink Floyd), in the city. Their style was compared to bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Uriah Heep and quite often they were termed as vanguards of heavy metal. :haz:
LF is an interesting combination of German musicians, paired with their English frontman, John Lawton.




I went through a Lucifer's Friend binge a couple of winter's ago, I think.  Good, quirky stuff!

Yeah, brilliant choice for dark days. They're not necessarily summer music and "quirky" might be a good adjective to describe them. Well, I think the whole genre, is overall, a wee bit quirky, isn't it? :joker:

Bowie apparently loved this track so much, he used its drum part for this sweet bit of musical business:



(Adrian Belew plays some magnificently tortured guitar on this.)

Good driving music.



Also good waiting music.

Jaki Liebezeit is a terrific drummer. He's almost unhinged near the end of this one.

2nd is my favorite agitation free album. Even though both of their albums are amazing.


I don’t care for the live album much though.

I have one of theirs on vinyl, Nordland. Great stuff.

Didn't know that anyone outside of Germany has ever heard from them.
Nordland is a very good album!
