Gift biography
German act GIFT started out as a school band back in 1969, initially under the moniker Phallus Dei, with an initial line-up consisting of Rainer Baur (guitar), Hermann Lange (drums), Uwe Patzke (bass), Helmut Treichel (vocal) and Nick Woodland (guitar).

By 1972 Woodland had left to join Subject Esq., while the rest of the band hit the studio to record their first album, and in 1973 their self-titled debut Gift was issued. On this production the band was pretty much cemented in a heavy rock sound typical of this day and age; with plain, hard guitar riffs served aplenty.

One year later their sophomore effort Blue Apple surfaced. By now Treichel had also said his goodbyes to the band, while Dieter Frei (keyboards, moog, mellotron, vocals) and Dieter Atterer (guitars, vocals) had joined the outfit. For this second creation the band's musical explorations took on freakier and more elaborate movements, to the extent that this venture is regarded as belonging to the rooster of albums deemed interesting for followers of the Krautrock scene.

This sophomore effort turned out to be the last by this German act though, and it is thought that Gift dissolved soon after the release of Blue Apple.

GIFT are currently working on their third album and are asking for donations at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/177808520/gift-release-2014

Gift Krautrock

Review by VOTOMS

4 stars A classic Krautrock album. First of all, this cover art sucks, this bubble butt stinks! But it's a good album. Okay, Gift was formed in 1969, Germany, as a school band. The joke quickly becomes a Krautrock band. Blue Apple (1974) is the second and last effort from these guys. While the two first tracks are just fine rock pieces, Don't Waste Your Time is awesome. The vocal lines are cool, and the organ is amazing. I like the guitar intro riff, repeated sometimes during the track. The bass tune is cool. The drums are fine, but could be better. The great surprise is Psalm, the fourth track, and better than the previous one! This one, ranges between an acoustic atmospheric catchy song and a psychedelic rock, with awesome riffage. Everything's Alright is another good track, but too repetitive. I must admit that without the organ, this album would be uncatchy.

Go To Find A Way did a great work opening the Side 2. Awesome right from the intro, the mellotron, moog, organ and stuff are very well executed. This song features a great guitar solo, by the way. Reflections is half weak, half good. The first mellow part sounds dead, but the second part really captivate and shows the real strenght of the song. Left The Past Behind is the last track of the album, and the virtuocity of the members makes a very funny ending. A good addition for any Krautrock or oldschool British Hard Rock collector.

3 stars Formed as Phallus Dei in 1969, this German outfit from Augsberg featured British guitarist Nick Woodland along with singer Helmut Treichel, guitarist Rainer Baur, bassist Uwe Patzke and drummer Hermann Lange in the original line-up.As Phallus Dei they reputedly recorded an album, which was never released, and afterwards the band changed its name to Gift and secured a deal with the Telefunken label, but at the time Woodland had already departed and joined Sahara, although his name appeared in the original vinyl version of the first album.Recorded at the Union Studios in Munich, Gift's self-titled debut was released in 1972.

Obviously influenced by the British Hard Rock bands of the time, Gift played a powerful Hard Rock with strong progressive flourishes and lots of jamming parts in the Kraut Rock tradition of many German Hard/Psych Rock acts, despite their tracks being actually rather short.The music is very energetic and edgy all the way with a pounding rhythm section and numerous impressive guitar leads, while Treichel prooved to be an excellent singer with his quite British-accented voice.While the negative point of the album tends to be the similarity between the pieces of the album, the combination between these angular Hard Rock riifs with the inventive grooves and the tyipcal Kraut-styled middle-part jams is mostly working well.Expressive vocals with good choruses, fiery solos and a good dose of changing tempos result a bunch of dynamic and adventurous compositions.Often the album retains a grandiose, emphatic and haunting atmosphere, based on Baur's classy guitar exercises, while a couple of tracks feature some good flute parts of unknown origin.

Guitar-based Hard Prog of good quality.The alternation between down- and uptempo grooves along with the standard Kraut Rock atmosphere in the instrumental parts are sure to satisfy all listeners of trully dynamic rockin' vibes.Recommended.

Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition. and to Snow Dog for the last updates
