Anyone heard of this one, sound like it could fit the genre, have not heard any music yet. Sounds interesting though.

Niagara:

Niagara’s 1972 “S.U.B.” release on United Artist (Germany). Man finding info on this record is pretty scant. This is definitely a hot morsel of German jazz/kraut/funk. Here’s some words from Gepre.net:

Prog, featuring Danny Fichelscher of Amon Düül II and Popol Vuh. First album is apparently all percussion.
Extremely funky Can soundalikes. This band contains some mainstays of the krautrock movement like Danny Fichelscher of Amon Düül II and Popol Vuh and Udo Lindenberg of something else which I can’t remember. Both these members play percussion on the LP. The LP is percussion heavy (4 percussionists in all) but not just percussion. There are some extremely funky tracks, with wah-wah guitar and busy bass runs. The LP will remind mostly of Tago-Mago period Can but also of Weather Report and an instrumental Santana. Tracks range from 3-12 minutes and there is no singing, mostly trumpets and sax taking on the top lines. “Bones” reminds me of Can playing the Sesame Street soundtrack but don’t let that put you off. Standout track for me is “Kattarh”. A big collectable here in England on vinyl, sought after by DJs as well as prog-fans because of the many break-beats to be found on this LP. I’m not sure what label this was originally on - maybe BASF? —

I think it was because it was my first Krautrock band it inmedeatly repelled me from the genre.

I got and listened today to Jesdat - The City Lights. A pretty solid accomplished made my the spanish artists. I liked most of it, especially Blind World.

Now I'm having some thoughts whether it's real Klautrock. I found slim resemblances, much more coming a Progressive Electronic essence, build upon experimentality and upon a technical dark ambiance.

A new band arrived at the archives.

Bardo Pond.

Lovers of Krautrock might want to check this band out. I can recommend their album Lapsed. It's very noisy, but once you get the hang of it then it's all smooth sailing from there.Thumbs Up

This will give you a little more information about Hunters & Collectors, although there is a wealth of information about them just through google Tongue

A couple fast facts:

Formed the year I was born!

They named themselves after a song by Can

Besides, even more German related bands (Swiss etc.) aren't listed under Krautrock, such as Brainticket (contrary to Krokodil, which I thought were swiss, in Krautrock!)
 
so, what are the criteria for Krautrock? if anubian lights is here, shouldn't bands like Tortoise and Stereolab also be included? (I didn't hear either of them, just writing upon info I got from PA) English Amon Düül is excused because of its original AD II connection; what about the rest? More important; what are some German bands in space/experimental genres while they could easily be described as Krautrock? (My Solid Ground is a prominent example)
 
 
 
 
 
P.S. the album I mentioned above is included in a mp3 selection CD named "Space Rock"!!!!!! it also includes one Hawkwind and a couple of other Hawkwind related material, Alan Davey, Nik Turner etc.



Have a read of Alan and Steve Freeman's 'Crack In The Cosmic Egg'. They usually have everything pretty much spot on.

I also think the same thing about Brainticket, Bilek. IMO Cottonwoodhill and Psychonauts are clearly Krautrock. Although Tortoise has some krautrock influences, They where one of the pioneers of another genre.

Listen to Turkish psych/prog; you won't regret:
Baris Manco,Erkin Koray,Cem Karaca,Mogollar,3 Hürel,Selda,Edip Akbayram,Fikret Kizilok,Ersen (and Dadaslar) (but stick with the '70's, and 'early 80's!)

Not a matter of rivalry, indeed... check my signature ; I love both bands (Can a little more, though)
btw; I think AD II went downhill after 1973. Nothing imaginative as Yeti or Lemminge... the same can be said about Can, but there's something that appeals me, even in their disco flavoured albums... (not Rite Time, that's something elseDead!)

I am a krautrock fan and love Amon Duul (both) and I also happen to love Can as well.
I know of others that dislike Can. But as others have noted, Can is different in approach and sound from their peers.
 
Focus on the ones you love and be happy with it Smile

    Jus' bin 'avin a flick through the Can an' noticed that 'Prehistoric Future'  (sessions from '68. Vinyl only) is missing. Could be a boot 'tho it was widely available in UK record shops when it was released a few years back. Also there is a French cassette (name escapes me. Don't 'ave it. Edit: 'Only You' perhaps ?) from the early '80s with some unreleased material
