German band Puppenhaus released one album back in 1973, which should be a shoe-in at PA methinks. With loads of influences spanning from Crimson to Tull to Zappa - this record effortlessly swoops through a wide variety of different sonic textures. I do however think that the overriding principles within the music remain jazzy. The "album" is in fact one of the now infamous SWF sessions coming outta Germany, that featured somewhat obscure artists such as Kollektiv, Jud's Gallery and Odin.

I realize these guys were suggested a good while ago, and while I see a lot of agreement about including them on the site, there's still no trace of them(and the old thread is locked)

Here's the whole album:

Here's a small snippet taken from the Green-Brain site:

No progressive rock music fan should be misled by the album title 'Jazz macht Spazz', a bowdlerization of 'jazz makes fun', this is progressive jazz-rock at its best. Büdi Siebert (flutes and saxes), Herbert Binder (gt), Frank Fischer (bass), later with Release Music Orchestra, Thomas Rabenschlag (keys) and drummer Bea Maier (later with Zomby Woof and Moira), all well trained on the instruments, played a varied, inventive, melodic and often furious kind of music with lots of Krautrock magic influenced by Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Soft Machine and Weather Report. 5 titles on this CD were recorded at German radio station SWF, 2 titles are live recordings (taped from the soundboard), all in all 77 minutes of great flute and sax playing, furious and lyrical guitar and bass work, hypnotic rhythm patterns and perfect keyboard sounds. Hard to believe, that Puppenhaus never recorded an album. In 1980 Büdi Siebert with friends recorded an album under the name 'Herrgottsax', which also will be released in the next month on Long Hair. Digitally remastered from original master tapes. CD comes with comprehensive booklet, band story by the musicians, many photos and especially with a wonderful cover based on a painting by drummer Bea Maier. Highly recommended 

As with my earlier suggestion Cyclopedian, I'll drop this by the apt authoritiesSmile
