"With Asmus Tietchens and Dieter Moebius, two artists counting among the greats of German avant-garde electronic music have come together. Both have been active for well over 30 years: Moebius (since 1970) as a member of Kluster/Cluster and Harmonia...

"Improvisation was and still is the magic word in jazz and live electronica. Transforming spontaneous ideas in real time, listening and reacting immediately to one another -- these are the signs of truly vibrant collaboration. If the musicians can also...

"When Jon Leidecker phoned in early 2012 with a proposition, it seemed a little too good to be true. Jon, part of a loose-knit west coast collective of sound artists whose work I much admired, wondered if Dieter Moebius and I might be interested in meeting him in a spectacular Montana mountain studio for a week of recording, no strings attached. Moebius, always up for an adventure, didn't need much convincing either. Converging on tiny Whitefish in September of that year, our little group of five...

"Many brightly shining planets orbit the twin central star of Cluster (Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius). To be clear: as soloists Roedelius and Moebius have long since worked with all kinds of musicians whose congenial contributions add even...

"Dieter Moebius -- half of the legendary duo Cluster and the godfather of electronic krautrock -- passed away in the summer of 2015. In 2016, Bureau B begins rereleasing his final four solo albums, starting with his 1999 album Blotch. Moebius's most famous collaboration is, of course, the "long-term project" Cluster with Hans-Joachim Roedelius, which existed from 1969 until 2010 (with some lengthy breaks). The duo existed in changing formations involving such legendary colleagues as Conny Plank, Michael...

"Dieter Moebius - one half of the legendary duo Cluster and the godfather of electronic krautrock - passed away in the summer of 2015. Bureau B are reissuing his final four solo albums. Following on from Blotch and Nurton, reissued in 2016, Kram and Ding now complete the quartet."

"If Dieter Moebius' previous album Kram was an irreverent mélange of bright synthetic textures, 2011's Ding might be considered Moebi's industrial album. There is a cyclical, mechanical feel to many of the pieces here...

"Recorded in 2008, Kram's playfully disjointed rhythms and shiny plastic surfaces give us just a glimpse perhaps of Moebi's own state of mind -- content, at ease, and happy to be working on music. With small mobile...

"On the second album of his late solo work, 2006's Nurton, krautrock legend Dieter Moebius (1944-2015) searches for flaws and uses them as a creative impulse. As usual, he blithely ignores any mainstream expectations. In science, an experiment is defined as an attempt to methodically gain information by systematically varying parameters. The results then confirm or refute the hypothesis or the model of the experiment. In art, however, confirmation is not of interest. Far more exciting are the flaws. They...

“This album is a continuation of Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster, Harmonia) and Christoph H. Muellers collaborative efforts. The pair released their debut album IMAGORI on Groenland Records in 2015. It didnt have such a driving sound, which goes to show how Roedelius, who is now 83 years old, is picking up the pace as he ages. In Christoph M. Mueller, who gained fame through groups like Gotan Project, he has found the perfect partner, one whose musicality is in no way inferior to Roedelius and who...

"Strangely named after a pipe tobacco, the Berlin group Murphy Blend were always quite a mystery. They were also a rarity in early German rock, as they combined the psychedelic Krautrock sound with heavy rock, blues and classical musics. Their music...

"First legit vinyl reissue of this 1971 Krautrock album, recorded in Köln and issued on Bacillus at the time. Includes 6 bonus rehearsal tracks from 1970 plus an unreleased 25 minute version of "Flash". A couple of tracks like the massive 13-minute opening "Dirty Yellow Mist" and "The Executioner" reveal the secrets of early 70s psych/rock as well as anything to be named, w/ monotonous, spacey riffing grinding into the third mind zone. "My Solid Ground's first and only record presented the full...

"Brilliant German Krautrock Underground band, famous for the collectors because of their 1971 Bacillus album. This CD contains 4 unreleased tracks from 1971 (19 minutes) recorded at a broadcast session for SWF radio. Those songs are in the vein of the...

Tolkien-inspired dark ambient soundscapes with spooky/ritualistic atmosphere, treated percussions, gongs and guitars, trippy Hammond and Mini-Moog, tape loops, weird noises, and drones...

"Amongst the most obscure of Krautrock bands, due to being so early and on an unlikely label. In their early days they were fronted by guitarist/vocalist Michael Winzkowski (who went on to Epsilon), but apart from that, nothing is known of their...

"The second album of German band Octopus. A strong prog rock album with long solos on keyboards and guitar. The Mediterranean lyrics make this CD almost a concept album. Originally released in 1978. Released on cd for the very first time."

The German/Dutch band Odin are best known for their one release on German Vertigo. This is an interesting release of mostly cover tunes (Neil Young! Frank Zappa, King Crimson) from early in their career. More than decent sound considering the age of the recordings, but definitely on the 'good bootleg' side of sonics.

"This live concert is an impressive documentation of Odin, captured at the birth of the band’s search for its individual identity. The four musicians had agreed to cast in their lots..

"Odin, like Nektar was a British band residing in Germany. While Nektar received some success (especially the United States when Passport Records showed an interest in their music), Odin simply released one album, disappeared, and has pretty much been...

The German/Dutch band Odin are best known for their one release on German Vertigo. This archival release is actually probably better than the album on Vertigo! Excellent quality radio tapes of 2 originals and 2 (17') of Frank Zappa covers!...
