The intricate rhythms and jazzy touches of this Hamburg band were at the time quite unusual for the Pilz label, specialised in folk music. The reissue LP features two tracks, which were included on a compilation album, and another two songs from a never released Pilz 7″ single as bonus […]

Firmly structured songs like ‘Thuloneas Korper’ were the exception amongst broad improvisations combining spontaneous musical ideas.

Superb live recordings of a heavily underrated early ’70s band from Germany, playing a sophisticated style of progressive krautedelic jazz-rock, mostly instrumental.
