Esoteric are delighted to announce the 1st ever shows in the UK of seminal krautrock band Agitation Free,one in London and one in Manchester on 5th and 6th April 2012. The band feature their original line up.
Ticket link below.
From their beginnings in Berlin in 1967, the band embraced the concept of performing long and free improvisations, experimenting with the use of liquid projectors, slide shows and their own films in live performances. The Beat Studio that AGITATION FREE initiated under the direction of Thomas Kessler also developed into the creative centre for the Berlin groups ASH RA TEMPEL and TANGERINE DREAM. The sound of Agitation Free featured the pioneering electronics of Michael Hoenig, one of Germany’s best musicians when creating atmospheric melodies and powerful-layered soundscapes which both enhanced and defined the band’s style. Also featured were guitarists Lutz Ulbrich and Gustl Lutjens whose magic fingers could conjure up exotic Eastern scales or soaring melodic melodies with ease. Drummer Burghard Rausch and bassist Michael “Fame” Günther were a polyrhythmic rhythm section extraordinaire that propelled the music. In February 2007, AGITATION FREE reunited to perform a series of concerts in Tokyo with the superb “SHIBUYA NIGHTS” just released on Esoteric being the resulting record of those shows. After almost forty years, the five musicians of AGITATION FREE have reincarnated their creative vision.
