Creepy grimy and slimy music to be a slumball to.

+1 on the Ibliss recommendation...fantastic track... to be found on one of the Soul Jazz compilations Deutsche Elektronische Musik...

I was lucky enough to find copies of the DVDs mentioned before, with public/TV appearances by a few of the most important Kraut bands...the DVDs are called "This is Kraut" and consist of two volumes :
http://www.discogs.com/Various-This-Is- ... se/3453839
http://www.discogs.com/Various-This-Is- ... se/4166370

Also, I didn't read A crack in the Cosmic Egg, nor did I read the Julian Cope book, but I did read the very well documented and extensive "Au-delà du Rock - la vague planante, électronique et expérimentale allemande des années soixante-dix (le mot et le reste, 2007) by Eric Deshayes... a very interesting read for those who will read French...

My favorite contemporary "Neo-Kraut" acts are Cloudland Canyon ( http://www.discogs.com/artist/763685-Cloudland-Canyon ), Caribou (The milk of human Kindness) and Datashock ( http://www.discogs.com/artist/537528-Datashock ) and Beak (that has been mentioned too...)

Some of my favorite "real" Kraut artists are undisputedly Kluster, Cluster, Harmonia, Ash Ra Tempel, Neu!, Xhol (Caravan), Can, Agitation Free, Popol Vuh, Seesselberg ( Synthetik 1 has just been reissued by Wah Wah records), Kraftwerk, Conrad Schnitzler, Conny Plank et all ...
Also, Lard Free is in for an in teresting listen, even though they can not be put under the same Kraut banner as aforementioned German bands...

Also, I'm surprised nobody mentioned the brilliant Von Bingen, with our good doctor es Buchla Rick Smith

Yep, sugar time's second album - "Future days of the neu Dusseldorf spambot" - is a classic of motorik awesomeness.

Thought I'd take a look at this thread to see if I could add anything, but all of my fave KR bands/artists have already been mentioned - all early stuff.

I just have to big up Ashra, though. Manuel Goettsching was very influential in my musically formative years.

Thanks to German public TV, which did not copy over all their old reels over time, there now is an extensive collection of rare old live performances spanning from 1968 and onwards throughout the 70s. Most (if not all) of these (labelled Deutschrock Nacht) can be found on youtube.

There are some great recordings in there, but also some pretty weird and far out stuff. All german, all kraut, all groovy, obviously. The videos can probably also be found via other channels.

Roll up and lean back.

Cool !
Those are all the clips that are to be found on the two DVDs I talked about in one of my previous posts in this thread... it's nice that anyone can watch and enjoy them :tu:

This is my favorite thread on here!
Krautrock is almost all I listen to. There were some that this thread turned me on to- Michael Hoenig, sergius golowin. Both so good, so thanks!
Also the record by Moebius called Tonespuren is great, as well as all of the collaborations with plank.
Roedelius is almost always on point.
Also the Wolgang reichmann record is perfect.
It's this kind of music that led me to modular actually. (Not that too many of these artists used modular.)

Just recently bought Michael Hoenig's Departure From The Northern Wasteland, and I love it. Really good Berlin school right there. Apparently he also did an album with Göttsching which is also very good.

It's fun to think he would later make the soundtrack for Baldur's Gate.

...and is great, as expected. I actually bought the three Neu! albums today as well, after realising I really really like the 'motorik' style of music. Then I saw this thread... so got to go look into some more of the suggestions! :-)

...edit - "Eat Lights" is DEFINITELY the kind of stuff I like :-)

Jut watched a Herzog Doc on a Swiss Ski Jumper.
The music was awesome.
Thankfully there were credits.
Popol Vuh.
Gotta explore this more.

I think you guys will dig this. Favourite records of one of the many krautrock legends:

That Givt Return record he lists down is definitely worth checking out.

Nice thread. These guys (Salvatore) are somewhat kraut-ish. The record this is from is epic, "Tempo".

It's great to discover today's krautrock.
There's something of Krautrock in To Rococo Rot, a great band.
