Strange to see how the french people have always be passionate by the avant garde in rock and in jazz too. Kevin ayers was the first to say that.

I think that goes way back with your country Pierre. Music has always been cared for and nutured in France - in all of its facets.

True. For me that's where the modern music begins :

I actually stopped the Dungen album I was listening to, so I could hear it, I'm glad I did. BTW Do yoy know Dungen Pierre? I just remember you agreeing with me in regards to modern production values, and this band's albums all sound like they were made in 1970. They got that warm and vibrant live in the studio feell to them. They've got heart and a soul of their own: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HcmOht2O9A

Half prog / half kraut, but very good.
Gebärväterli - Im Tal der Emmen. 1978 Brutkasten.

Despite the artist and title sounding like some sort of alpine cheese, Gebarvaterli is anything but cheesy. Technically would fit in the large Kraut fusion school of the late 1970s, but this album won't remind you of Kraan, Embryo, Missus Beastly, etc... In fact, there are parts here that recall the great Tortilla Flat (especially in the rhythms and flute solo sections). And when the trombone gets featured, I'm reminded of Nanu Urwerk, another square-peg-in-a-round hole German fusion band. While it's not perfect throughout (sometimes it's pure jazz - fine - but not ideal for me anyway), this is one of the best new-for-me obscurities I've heard in 2009. Well worth the time to hear. Would love to see Garden of Delights or Long Hair put this platter out on CD. (CD Reissue Wish List)

I thought it was really interesting - don't usually listen to that kind of stuff. Pretty weird stuff, even for Faust. Smile

It's got a Grateful Dead kind of vibe to it, that I really dig. 
They bring that with em during gigs, and you can definitely pick that up if you have any of their live releases.

If any of you guys out there doubt whether the Krautrock scene merely was a German thang, then you should definitely check out this cut by Swedish Älgarnas Trädgård. 
This one may just have the coolest start to a track ever! A small toy musical box setting this hefty Amon Düülish monster of a track off. 
Quite aptly named Takeoff:

That was a nifty intro. And the wobbly little synth line in the main theme is pretty bitchen too.

I know that you're gonna say : "That duck is crazySmoke ", but I hear hints of Kraut in that James Brown's song.
