I got seriously into Krautrock 7 yrs ago after the purchase of Julian Copes rather fine ode to the genre ' Krautrock sampler' I already had a few Can cds so I kinda new what to expect. I think the greatest of this scene is the whole NEU!/Harmonia/La duseldorf family. Sorry all you can/faust whatever fans you just can't beat NEU 1975!!!! I have been buying a few Amon Duul 2 releases lately: Yeti, Carnival + Wolf City which are mighty but I am unsure about this Amon Duul 1 lp called psychodelic underground'. If pot adled bongo mania is your trip check it out!! The one absolute turkey I have bought on the rec. of Krautrock sampler is Ash Ra Temple 'Amboss/1st lp'... this stuff kind of defines the nadir of the genre to me. Just 2 tracks of whoosh noise and endless inept soloing. After listening to this the need for punk rock makes absolute sense.
Anyway enough of the negativity, can anyone tell me what brainticket sound like?
