    Posted: February 04 2018 at 13:26
There was a German prog band I liked with mostly short instrumental songs labeled in German. They often had German spoken word bits at the beginnings or ends of songs, not a lot of singing though, some background female vocals, perhaps wordless. I don't remember anything fancy about them, in terms of artwork or anything. I must have found them here but I can't find them anymore. They were on Rhapsody (which is the same as Spotify), so not too too obscure. There are a lot of bigger named Neo-Prog and seventies bands which aren't available, so they are not totally obscure. They were, I believe, a before the 90s band. I keep thinking of this word "Tanzig" in my head but it's probably wrong as the band name. It's a german word. Many thanks!

there is a band named "Danzig". Danzig is actually a formerly German city that became Polish after WW2 under the name Gdansk. it is the city the German author and Nobel laureate Günter Grass was born in.

the band is however American and named after its founder, Glenn Danzig, and the music of the band is not Prog but Heavy Metal

I looked and looked again and I think it's probably lost to me. It was a symphonic-ish band though, not heavy or anything... instrumentals with incredibly annoying spoken word prefaces to the tracks. I remember a black album cover with white print. Dang it. They had this one song that I thought had a genius passage. Too bad.

Krautrock and German and French and Italian prog really sucks though IMO, otherwise, lol. Eloy is the only German band I listen to other than this one I forgot. It's a curse from the nordic Krautrock gods.

Gdansk/Danzig was Polish city since its origin. However, it was occupied by Prussians (Germans) for 127 years. During the prolonged occupation, Danzig became subject to the german settlement politics and cultural influence.

the history of Gdansk is actually much more complicated than that, but I will admit I simplified it to recent history. Poland and Germany are inextricably entwined in the complete history of Gdansk

Not sure that this checks all the boxes you've set out, but could it be this one?

Not any of those. Maybe I dreamed them?

In the words of a great prog-related artist:

You are the most extraordinary [band]
You write the most peculiar kind of tunes
I met you [streaming] as I was [listening to random stuff]
One afternoon

Wasn't it the most amazing meeting?
Surrounded by those [german voice-overs] from the deep
You started telling me a funny story [I couldn't understand]
And I fell asleep [and forgot your name]

Oh what a dream!
Oh what a dream that was!

-Kevin Ayers

I don't get it. Eloy is great. Kraftwerk is great. Tangerine Dream is great. But the really nichey stuff which people usually mean I don't get. I'm not musical enough to describe what it is, but I'd say crude or eccentric or abstract is at the tip of my tongue. Poor production values a lot of the time. Which is important to me.

I liked the band "Neu" that you pointed out better. They're fairly relaxing sounding. Maybe a little too relaxing. Getting sleepy.

Success... the band is called Flaming Bess....

I got the name Tanzig I think from their album

TANZ DER GÖTTER

Thanks to everyone for helping me narrow it down when I was looking through the prog archives country page which was posted above by dr wu23
