Hello all,
I don't know if there is a Krautrock appreciation thread, and I tried to search for one, but did not see any. This is the Krautrock Space. This is where all krautrock things are talked about, mini album reviews, videos, and appreciation. I'll try to keep this thread alive and going with some videos, and maybe some of my thoughts on albums. Feel free to join in and comment on stuff you like or dislike. So dim the lights, set the volume to 8, and float into space. Hope you find something cool.

To start this thread off, lets blast off into space with...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QLL2j8ZtxE

In this video, we get to see a dancing Damo, a shirtless Holger, and the legendary Jaki on drums. The keyboard is so cool, simple and fast, and some sweet guitar shredding. Damo dancing! LOL

Oh and how do I post links to the page? Or upload videos to the page? I think it would be easier for the people.

Dies Irae - The Trip. What a video! 
I don't know where the track is from. According to my immediate memory, it's not featured on this, the only album I know by them (First, 1971)
Very recommended stoney hard rock. 

At the not so trippy, but very political,  end of the kraut spectrum is Floh de Cologne. Their debut "Fliessbandbaby's Beat-show " (1970) is a particular favorite of the genre. 
This bizzare video features a track from their second album "Rock-Oper Profitgeier" and is called "die Luft gehört denen, die sie atmen." The air belongs to those who breath (it)

Wow, Karl. This is my VERY FIRST Krautrock video ... I've been immersed into this and got a Can Freak.

I plead guilty for ignoring Faust too much, only got 3 albums, need to put some time in that band.

Und yetzt, Mani und zwei Freunde!



And one of my favs in their early years, Amon Düül II

Thanks for bringing up this page! As a small boy, who rather should have been in bed than out on the streets, I attended my first concert ever in the Quartier Latin, Berlin, listening to an astounding band coming up on stage with the words: Wir heissen KRAAN und fangen jetzt AAN!

... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

I just bought Cluster 71, which I don't know if this site considers Krautrock, but I do. It is incredibly good.

Thank you AtomicCrimsonRush! Was going to put up the Krautrock documentary but was having problems loading videos onto the page Disapprove. But yes, for those that want to know a little more about Krautrock, and some history behind the scene, I highly recommend that Krautrock Documentary!

The Trip video was really a trip...
