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.

Por total falta de tempo tenho atrasado a publicação dos programas aqui, seguem os dois das semanas passada e retrasada.

KRW-14-2020 Eat Ghosts e Emergency

EAT GHOSTS / MINERVA (as Eat Ghosts) An Ti E Go


The band MINERVA was founded in 2008 in Postdam, Germany by Enrico SEMLER (vocals), Jan WATERSTRADT (guitar), Ron HERMANN (bass) and Martin MANN (drums). After touring, they released a first EP ''Stories of A Journeyman'', in 2010. This EP has a hard rock sound with elements of psychedelic and jazz. After Enrico overtook Ron's job as a bass player, the band continues as a trio completed with sax player Benjamin IHNOW in 2012.
They released their first complete CD ''Germinal'' in 2013 and found their sound with some duel between sax and guitar and progressive grooves from the rhythm section. Their psychedelic prog contains unpredictable structures with some extended songs. The band has since produced a second album, changing their name to EAT GHOSTS to reflect their new musical direction.

Studio Album, released in 2017

EMERGENCY Get Out To The Country


The German based band Emergency was founded in 1970 by Czech musician Hanus Berka, who already had a career as an arranger and sideman in the States among others with Jan Hammer and Miroslav Vitous. The multicultural band consisted of Berka (sax & keyboards) fellow Czechs Jiro Matousek (keyboards), Otto Bezloja (bass) and Dusko Goykovic (trumpet), German drummer Udo Lindenberg and Englishman Barrie Newby on guitar.
The band recorded two jazz-rock records with brass arrangements for CBS. 'Emergency' (1971) and in 1972 'Entrance' with a changed line-up.
In the summer of '72 the band split up, only to be reformed in December of the same year with a complete new line-up: Berka, Peter Bischof (ex-Orange Peel, lead vocals), Richard Palmer-James (ex-King Crimson lyricist, guitar& vocals) Jerzy Ziembrowski (bass), Veit Marvos (ex-2066 &Then, keyboards), Martin Harrison (percussion) and Bernd Knaak (drums). The new line-up secured a record deal with Brain and recorded two commercially oriented records 'Get out To the Country' (1973) and 'No Compromise' (1974) the last again with a changed line-up. Both records present jazz-rock with blues and soul elements. Afterwards the band folded for good.

KRW-15-2020 Andy Marx e Fuhrs & Frohling

ANDY MARX - The circle - 1973


The guitarist Andreas "Andy" Marx lived in London for 2 years (1968 - 70) and played with the group "Creepy John Thomas" during this time. In 1971 he joined Doldingers Passport. Soon afterwards he left the jazz rock formation with the drummer Udo Lindenberg and they recorded his first solo album in Hamburg. In the same year Andy Marx recorded his first solo album "The Circle". But Andy Marx didn't want to stay completely without other musicians. He founded "Band Alone" (Marx) in early 1973 with the drummer Eberhard Wilhelm, whose previous stations were Amos Key, Germany and Cataract, and a year later with Wolfgang Graf (bass), Peter Bornkessel, called Bo Born (Orgal) and Peter "Pit" Troja the band Cherubin perfect.

FÜHRS & FRÖHLING Ammerland



SCHICKE, FÜRHS & FRÖHLING is one of the most amazing prog acts to ever come out of Germany. Instilling their symphonic sound with elements of space rock, avant-garde electronics and fusion, their style turns out to be very rich and dynamic, combining light and shade in a perfect balance.
Eduard SCHICKE (drums, percussion, moog drum) and Heinz FRÖHLING (guitars, bass, synthesizer, mellotron), who had already been colleagues in the recently split SPEKTAKEL (one of the major German prog acts at the time), met keyboardist Gerard FÜHRS playing electric piano in a music store, sometime I nearly 1975. A few conversations led to instant chemistry, and furthermore, to the formation of the SCHICKE, FÜRHS & FRÖHLING trio. Six months later, they had a full repertoire of their own, on-stage experience (including the 1975 German Rock Festival in Munich) and a record deal signed with the Metronome label. Their debut album "Symphonic Pictures", an undisputed classic of German prog, was released in 1976, selling about 12,000 copies. The trio gained popularity among local prog fans, mostly for their stunning live performances, which many critics described as magic and overwhelming. Two more studio recordings followed, "Sunburst" (1977) and "Ticket to Everywhere" (1979). Though not as impressive as their debut, these latter albums show the band exploring their musical vision further, with a genuine will to evolve. You can also notice the band bearing a tendency toward a lightening of their sound, especially concerning the third album (the last one, indeed), which bears a bigger tendency toward appealing tunes and catchy arrangements that lean somewhat close to jazz-fusion and jazz-pop, with the symphonic factor not remaining the main focus anymore. In between, "Sunburst" still managed to capture the density and pompous atmospheres that had made the best of "Symphonic Pictures" while containing new rooms for jazz-rock oriented ideas. A year before SCHICKE quit the band, his partners had started working as a duo in parallel: with SCHICKE's leaving, the trio just dropped off. In fact, the "Ticket to Everywhere" was mostly conceived as a studio project more than as an effort by a 'live' band. In the early 90s, a double CD comprising all three albums plus two live tracks was released - the item was dedicated to the memory of Gerard FÜHRS, whose untimely passing occurred on Nov. 3rd, 1992.
