3 stars A significant name of the German krautrock scene,THIRSTY MOON were found in Bremen in 1972 and started as a 7-member band.By the same year their epontmous debut was already recorded and released by Brain Records.

It consists of four short tracks and one epic jam,clocking at over 20 minutes.The album follows the typical German mode of krautrock with strong interplays,long jamming and a lot of space for endless improvisated musicianship.Saxes are everywhere played by Willie Pape and ranging from smooth passages to abstract heavy parts.There is also some lovely percussion work throughout the listening,featuring also nice organ and groovy electric pianos.Vocals are English with a rough edge,which fit very much to the band's style,while the epic of the album conatins also a lot of spacey parts,charcterized by the unbelievable saxes,the great percussion work and the smooth flutes.Sometimes it seems that the tracks are out of any logical structure,but repeated listenings will give you the time and chance to appreciate THIRSTY MOON's undenieable talent.Headed mainly to fans of jazz and kraut rock with heavy emphasis on good jams and improvisations!
