You play for us today?


The one and only gig featuring the original 1974 AGITATION FREE line-up in Germany ...I couldn't miss the opportunity to experience this and went to Berlin on the 20th of March alongside my workmate Jens. I would say around 300 spectators came to enter the Fritz Club at Berlin Ostbahnhof.



They have almost played the same set list which was offered during their Japan tour in 2007, recorded for the live album 'Shibuya Nights' - however, back to the roots, even more psychedelic overall in my humble opinion. That means dominated by Gustl Lütjen's and Lüül's cool dual guitar interaction, seemingly ageless. Michael Hoenig cared for samples and the well-dosed electronic ingredients and Burghard Rausch as well as Michael Günther were responsible for the pressure and groove in many ways..



This gig was something gripping really, unfortunately perceived as an affair way too short, running like lightning so to say, although topping with the Pink Floyd borrowed 'Interstellar Overdrive' as an encore. If you have any chance to go to Paris, Manchester or London ... it's worth it!




the official stage set list:

Uwe, do you think they were as good on that day as they were 28 years ago? Better? Not better, but still good?

hard to tell ... never saw them live in the 1970's, only can compare with their live albums, I tend to the latter, still hope they'll bring a new album to the table
