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.

Androméda - Same (1979) Berlin

Not to be confused with the Heavy/Psychedelic Rock group of the same name from Köln, this lesser-known Andromeda group came from Berlin and was around since late-70's.It consisted of guitarists Rainer Lingk and Bernd Jahnke, keyboardist Thomas Lüdemann, bassist Alex Hensel, drummer Rainer Bergmann and multi-instrumentalist/singer Karl-Heinz Engelhardt.Their self-titled debut was a private press back in 1979.

Andromeda had quite a versatile sound, clearly influenced by the major Heavy/Kraut Rock bands like ELOY, JANE or even Austrian EELA CRAIG, but definitely with a touch of their own.Their style consisted of short- and mid-length tracks, somewhat split between guitar-driven instrumental sections and the passages led by the performances of Engelhardt on flutes, saxes and harmonica.Vocals are both in English and German, quite decent to say the least.The arrangements are pleasant with no show offs with the band prefering to deliver memorable compositions than complicated material.Inspirations come from a variety of fields: Psychedelic Rock, Symphonic Progressive Rock, Folk and Heavy Prog with some great dual guitar parts in evidence along with worthy flute-led passges, much in the vein of JETHRO TULL in the raw parts or GENESIS in the more delicate ones.On the other hand the offerings are pretty safe in general with little surprises and the lack of some killer musicianship is obvious after plenty of listenings.

Good, well-played but rather secure Progressive/Art-Rock from these Berlin musicians.Andromeda's debut is likely to please all fans of typical German Kraut experiences, who also like some nice melodies thrown in their music.Overall recommended.

 Rainer Lingk (guitar, vocals)
Alex Hensel (bass, vocals)
Bernd Jahnke (guitar, vocals)
Rainer Bergmann (drums, percussion)
Thomas Lüdemann (keyboards, clarinet)
Rebecca Wronker (flute, vocals)
