Post-War Avant-Rock ! Krautrock Week Coming Up on Rock Revival
"Krautrock wasn't a movement, but a moment, a final thrust of the psychedelic project to gobble up every kind of music, and every kind of non-musical noise too, in order to excrete the outermost sound conceivable."
–Simon Reynolds in Melody Maker
This coming week should be one of the most challenging, where we take on the strange and wonderful world of Krautrock !
If you thought the sons of WW2 veterans in the US created some pretty wild music in their attempt to be their own people wait 'til you here what the sons of German soldiers created in the early 1970's.
...now these people had alot to work out........
Neu!, Faust, Can, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream.........get ready for a wild ride...
