    One of the best German Rock bands was the band Ougenweide. Their music was a virtuous mix of Prog Rock and medieval music. Most of their lyrics were in Middle High German. They played more than 60 different instruments, a lot of them original ones like the Krummhorn.

    This is a Live album from 1977. Fantastic, I can tell you! Get familiar with Ougenweide!

    By the way, I also do not understand what they are singing. German is very different from Middle High German.

    Nice memento, Chris. Here's a clip of Ougenweide from 1976.

    Love that Gomorrha cover, that's the Gomorrha I don't have. Haven't heard of Ougenweide! Cool find. Will be checking that out. I haven't seen Cluster or La Dusseldorf mentioned in this thread. Both excellent mid-70's offshoot bands. Also, Alcatraz has a great album called Vampire State Building. It was recorded at Can's Inner Space studio and has a very Can like feel to it. Excellent music, too!

    I recently re-read this thread and realized I was having diarrhea of the mouth when I responded.
    Alcatraz did not record in Can's studio, they recorded in Faust's Wumme studio.

    Recently ran across this Lp at the local record shop. Amon Duul's first album issued on Prophecy in the states back in 1970! This one is in excellent condition vinyl wise. Today it's known as " Psychedelic Underground".
    Wild, jam-like improvs of drums, guitars and whatever else they had with found recordings and left field sound effects spliced in to break up the continuous din of noise. Not really kraut in the typical sense.
    Four more albums would be released from these tapes

    I found a news item earlier this week that after 10 years together, 5 albums and a whopping 250,000 (!) albums sold, they're breaking up at the end of the year after their final tour.
    Jeez. I find them, snag all their albums, and they flame out in less than a year. :( Sucks.

    Thomas Dinger Fur Mich. I don't like it anywhere near as much as the 12" singles I got by La Dusseldorf . Those are pretty much on constant rotation.It sure took awhile to find them for a reasonable price.

    Geez, this type of music from the 70's sure has skyrocketed in vinyl prices. And I sure don't see things doing anything but going up in costs for the future.
