    Really sad to hear of the death of pioneering keyboard (and drums) genius Klaus Schulze.

    His work with Ash Ra Tempel, Tangerine Dream and solo efforts were all magnificent.

    Just check out his blistering drumming on Freak n' Roll:

    My Guru Guru CD arrived from Germany this morning.
    The veteran Krautrockers have done it again, with a hard-to-define blend of metal, jazz and funk, with a hint of Hawkwind and the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band thrown in.
    Nice presentation too, with a booklet of photos from the band's 50 year history.

    Only just found out that Guru Guru - my 2nd favourite Krautrock band after Ash Ra Tempel, did a comparatively recent studio album (2018).

    Unfortunately can't seem to find it on vinyl, but have just ordered the CD of "Rotate" from Amazon.

    Love the Rammstein industrial guitar sound and have most of their albums, only seen a cover band of these live called Rammlied.

    Will have to check out Yello.
    For some more recent German rock, which blends heavy metal with electronic, I recommend the bizarrely-named We Butter The Bread With Butter.

    Re: Krautrock

    Yes I loved Krautrock also. As with many other '70's sounds' Krautrock still has a place in this world. Like you I liked Sweet (not Slade) and Status Quo and as my knowledge grew so did my interest in all things Prog Rock, including Krautrock. I loved the music of Amun Duul (can't be bothered to put the unlauts in), Nektar and Neu!.

    Rammstein are a metal band from Germany. They aren't part of 'Krautrock', which I'm pretty Cartimand meant as a genre of progressive music.

    For a proper definition go here :

    Anybody else heard of Rammstein? German industrial metal band which started in the late 90s, they sing in the German language which suits the music perfectly. They are probably as famous for the outrageous stage shows as much as there music which makes for a very entertaining night out ...catch em if you can !!

    Re: Krautrock

    Ash Ra Tempel (well the legendary Manuel Gottsching and his new musicians) coming to The Barbican centre on 22 March 2017. Playing E2-E4 and the utterly sublime music from Schwingungen and Seven Up.

    Don't miss this rare opportunity to catch the ultimate Kosmische Krautrock live.
    Got my tickets and hotel already booked!
    Hope to see some of you there.

    Re: Krautrock

    Manuel Gottsching has assembled a new band, playing classic 1970s Ash Ra Tempel music, under the name "The Ash Ra Tempel Experience".
    Really hope they bring the show to the UK (otherwise, that's another trip on Easyjet I'll have to pay for).

    Saw them a few years ago. Deadly dull as a live experience!

    A rare opportunity to catch Manuel Gottsching (Ash Ra Tempel) live in the UK - Saturday 3rd October 2015 at the Hebden Bridge Picture House. He's playing his seminal E2-E4 album. Few tickets left. Got mine and a B&B booked. Can't wait!
