I'm Brazilian, I've always loved music and since I was little I buy and I listen to rock.
During the 70's I met a magazine called Pop, which I christened German Pop, since it was of Germanic origin, I did not understand what was written in the great majority, but it was there that I met the groups that I publish here on the blog today. Rock made in Germany is one of my favorites, but my taste is very eclectic.

Sou brasileira, sempre amei música e desde muito pequena compro e ouço rock. Durante os anos 70 conheci uma revista chamada Pop, que batizei de Pop Alemã, uma vez que era de origem germânica, eu não entendia o que estava escrito na sua grande maioria, mas foi ali que conheci os grupos que hoje publico aqui no blog. O rock feito da Alemanha é um dos meus favoritos, mas meu gosto é muito eclético.

Frankie Dymon Jr. - Let it Out 1971 (Germany, Krautrock)

Frankie Dymon Jr. foi uma espécie de 'projeto' liderado por Frank Dostal e Achim Reichel, anteriormente membros do The Rattles, um dos grupos de batida alemães mais conhecidos, e Wonderland. Sob o nome de Frankie Dymon Jr. eles gravaram um álbum em 1971, intitulado Let It Out, para o qual Reichel escreveu a maioria das músicas e produziu o álbum (a engenharia era de Konrad Plank).

O álbum é um fantástico e raro disco de Kraut alemão. Muitas das faixas têm arranjos muito incomuns. A arte da capa psicodélica também é notável.

Manderley - Fliegt, Gedanken, fliegt 1976 (Germany, Krautrock, Folk Rock)



O grupo de Folkrock baseado em Dortmund "Manderley" pertenceu ao melhor que o folkscene alemão dos anos setenta. Eles só gravaram este álbum, que foi lançado pela Pläne Records. 

O guitarrista Pit Budde e a violinista Klara Brandi seguiram em frente e fundaram a mais famosa banda de Cochise - provavelmente a mais quente banda política de folk rock da Alemanha desde o final dos anos 80.

Manderley foi encontrado em 1975 em Dortmund. A banda tocava folk e rock com letras políticas. Em 1976 eles gravaram em apenas duas semanas em "Ton am Dom", Colônia o álbum "... fliegt, Gedanken, fliegt ...", que foi lançado no selo Pläne.

O relançamento em CD continha duas faixas bônus que foram gravadas em janeiro de 1986 ao vivo no Fritz-Henssler-Haus, Dortmund.

 
Pit Budde (guitars, dulcimer, bass, sitar, percussion, vocals)
Helga Schmölter (vocals)
Horst W. Stölzig (banjo, bass, percussion, vocals)
Lutz Heffner (guitar, vocals)

Pyramid - Dawn Defender 1976 (Germany, Krautrock, Space Rock)


Lindo projeto alemão de rock ácido. O obscuro e subestimado "Dawn Defender" é constantemente misterioso, abstrato e experimental, com paisagens sonoras eletrônicas  pontuadas por guitarra elétrica e efeitos de eco. O álbum foi originalmente lançado Toby Robinson para a gravadora Pyramid. Uma séria manifestação "kosmische" krautrock, uma viagem musical perfeita. Pra quem curte Cosmic Jokers e A.R & the Machines.
 
"Dawn Defender" é obviamente mixado de muitas sessões diferentes, e roda uma grande variedade de estilos, desde o agitado Ash Ra Tempel, com guitarras de eco e sintetizadores cintilantes até mergulhar de cabeça no território de overdrive de Hawkwind. A sensação é muito parecida com o que a Porcupine Tree e a Electric Orange tentaram mais recentemente, exceto pelas autênticas texturas de Mellotron e antigas técnicas analógicas de delay. Ao todo, um excelente álbum de Krautrock espacial. 

Um obscuro projeto de estúdio produzido por Toby Robinson, também conhecido como The Mad Twiddler. Estas sessões foram gravadas por volta de 1975-76 em Colônia para a gravadora subterrânea Pyramid, operada por Toby e seu amigo Robin Page (o artista Fluxus). Durante esse tempo, Toby trabalhou como engenheiro e assistente em vários estúdios em Colônia, incluindo os famosos estúdios Dieter Dierks, onde a maioria dos álbuns do catálogo Ohr / Pilz / Cosmic Courier foram registrados. Tendo acesso aos estúdios durante horas mortas, Toby gravou muitas sessões apenas por diversão, sem qualquer interesse comercial, com amigos e músicos que frequentavam os estúdios e a cena underground de arte / música de Colônia. Algumas destas sessões foram mais tarde lançadas em vinil em sua gravadora Pyramid com a ajuda do artista Robin Page.

Uludag - Mau Mau 1988 (Germany, Krautrock)

The original Uludag was formed in Berlin circa 1980, as an improvising band playing "anarchistisch-experimentelle-rock-musik", with one foot in the new-wave and the other in the arts. By 1983 they'd gone through a lot of changes, and settled down as the trio of Werner Cee, Peter Hollinger and Lothar Reitz, with a new musical focus, blending art-rock and jazz elements with ethnic textures. In 1985 this trio recorded their first major work "7 Für Nichts", however only an extract ever made it onto record. In parallel to all this, the duo of Sabine Schäfer and Helmut Bieler-Wendt had been working as Panta Rhei, scoring theatre and ballet works. After both bands became involved in the same project, Uludag was reborn as a quartet of Cee, Hollinger, Schäfer and Bieler-Wendt.

Uludag's album MAU MAU saw the creation of an original fusion of Oriental musics, Embryo and Missus Beastly type jazz-fusion, with diversions to Henry Cow (also Fred Frith and Massacre) type realms, in an album spanned by a single thematic suite. Peter's rhythmic structures had a kind of punk-jazz energy to them, embellished with lots of complexities, and in cohesion with Sabine's keyboards they conjured up a Chinese cum Gamelan hybrid, given even more oriental flavour by Helmut's violin work. A fascinating and complex suite from start to end, MAU MAU is one of those unique unclassifiable albums born out of the Krautrock scene. It's a great shame that they never made a sequel.

Peter Hollinger is also known as a percussion soloist, and has worked with Alfred Harth in Gestalt Et Jive, with Guru Guru's Mani Neumeier, and many other projects. Sabine Schäfer now seems to work solely in electronic music with works premiered at the German Society for Psychology of Music at Karlsruhe.

Getriebe - Syncron 1975 EP (Germany, Krautrock, Prog Rock, Hard Rock)

Aqui temos um EP de 17 minutos, tempo suficiente para um lado de um LP cheio. Getriebe foi liderado por Detlev Schmidtchen, futuro tecladista do Eloy começando no álbum Dawn e terminando com Silent Cries and Mighty Echoes (e depois saiu para formar o bastante sem brilho Ego on the Rocks). Ironicamente, Getriebe vai lembrar aos ouvintes  Inside ou Floating (e meu período favorito do Eloy) mais do que o sofisticado Dawn. Na verdade, Getriebe soa como muitas das principais bandas alemãs de 1971.  Detlev Schmidtchen formou este grupo em 1971 em Hanover, e em 1975 eles ganharam uma competição de bandas locais chamada "Pop 75". O prêmio foi em um estúdio de gravação local, onde eles gravaram "Syncron".  Aparentemente, eles também ganharam a chance de jantar (?!) com Eloy, que eram os headliners convidados nesta competição / festival. Eloy furtou Schmidtchen o que causou a quebra do grupo.
Here we have a 17-minute EP, enough time for one side of a full LP. Getriebe was led by Detlev Schmidtchen, Eloy's future keyboardist starting on the Dawn album and ending with Silent Cries and Mighty Echoes (and then left to form the rather dull Ego on the Rocks). Ironically, Getriebe will remind the listeners Inside or Floating (and my favorite period of Eloy) more than the sophisticated Dawn. In fact, Getriebe sounds like many of the major German bands of 1971.

Detlev Schmidtchen formed this group in 1971 in Hanover, and in 1975 they won a competition of local bands called "Pop 75". The award went to a local recording studio, where they recorded "Syncron." Apparently they also won the dinner chance (?!) With Eloy, who were the invited headliners in this competition / festival. Eloy stole Schmidtchen which caused the group to break.
