Krautrock/Kosmische Musik and related

Very hard to find release by the great German pianist in collaboration with the man behind the board for all those great sounding CMP albums. Walter provides electronic manipulations of Joachim's pianisms. Some of this is very pianistic, while other pa...

If I am not mistaken, Lask was one of the earliest free-improvising musicians in Europe, although he was little noticed at the time. Now, on this 1985/1993 CMP recording, he is one of the earliest jazzmen to incorporate sampling and programming into hi...

This reissues the 2nd Limbus album, which was originally released by OHR in 1970. This is very early, very crazy Germanic freakout, freeform madness "Formed in 1968, Limbus were a most unusual band who grew a unique music out of jazz, folk and avant-ga...

This reissues the 2nd Limbus album, which was originally released by OHR in 1970. This is very early, very crazy Germanic freakout, freeform madness It features four musicians who were never heard from again after this: Odysseus Artnern, Bernd Henninger..

"Live from Gevelsberg (Sauerland) played art-rock with flute; without the nerve-wracking breaks often heard in this genre, but rather harmonious. In 1974, they released a 7" single and recorded an LP which, however, didn’t come out at that time. Only...

I was pleased to see this reissued for the very first time and also to hear it for the very first time since its original issue on vinyl in 1983.

"This extraordinary multi-instrumentalist is actually one of the few to have grasped in its essence what was the song of the world. With him there exist.

This first-ever release of any music by this excellent Germany duo consisting of Hammond organ & vocals and drums, percussion and vocals.

The two members, Günther Kühlwein (organ) and Walter Helbig (drums) were long-time band mates in a number...

Very long awaited, first-ever CD release of the third Missus Beastly album. After their great, self-titled, Gorilla-adorned, Germany jazz/rock classic second album, there were a lot of changes in personnel, with more and more overlap with the musicians...

"On their second album Material, originally released on Sky Records in 1981, Moebius & Plank ventured far, far away from the double coordinates of the Harmonia world and pop music cosmos. Amazingly, they did not find themselves floating in space, but...

This is a really great one, Krautrock fans. Don't miss this, which is somewhat unusual in the oeuvre and one of the late period great ones!

"Dieter Moebius and Conny Plank got to know each other through their work on Cluster's 1971 album and remained close friends until Plank's death in 1987. They made a congenial pair as musicians, as amply demonstrated by their first album as a duo, Rastakraut Pasta, originally released on Sky Records in 1980.

On this album, drums, electric guitars...

"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...

"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...
