The joys of having an older brother who was 17 in 1970 while I was 10, led to some healthy exposure to much of the 'underground' musics. The first Krautrock I heard was.....
Can - Monster Movie - YEAH!
A post-punk sound - 10 years early.
(Once John Lydon mentioned he loved Can in 1977, the N.M.E. etc. suddenly adopted Can / Krautrock as the hip names to drop)

Then loads of other stuff.....

Faust - Everything up until 'Faust Tapes' - which I bought myself for 49 pence (I think!) at the time....

Tangerine Dream - All their material up until 'Ricochet', too many to mention....

All those marvellous albums with fantastic 'hook you in' sleeves that I discovered in Electrip Records in Rhyl(Stockhausen albums on sale next to amusement arcades and candy floss stalls!), Cob Records in Porthmadog and Impact Records in Chester, these shops stocked quite a bit of the Ohr Label too.....oh sweet bird of youth....where have you flown ?
