"Uhrsprung" from 1976.











Found a english description on Oldish psych and Prog blog:

A polit-rock band in the uniquely German tradition, akin to Floh De Cologne, Lokomotive Kreuzberg, Checkpoint Charlie, et al., but with a larger sound, male and female vocals, and a technical progressive edge often close to Grobschnitt musically.

Their most ambitious moment was the double album concept work DIE PARISER KOMMUNE, a musical chronicle of the French revolution, handled in a most imaginative manner, from bizarre theatre through to lengthy symphonic progressive tracks. An obscure yet fascinating release.

Members of Oktober (working together with people from Schmetterlinge) also acted as the backing band on an album by P.P. Zahl.


Kalla Wefel (bass, guitars, vocals)

Peter Robert (organ, synthesizer, string ensemble, spinet)

Carl-F. Dцrwald (vocals, flute, percussion)

Klaus-Peter Harbort (drums, percussion)

Hans-Werner Schwarz (guitar, percussion)

+

Birger Holm (choir)

Axel Ratsch (percussion, choir)

Philippe Ressing (choir)

By the way, Uhrsprung is one album, while another is mentioned above, Die Pariser Kommune.  So there are at least two albums.

I have sent it over to Kraut. I may be wrong though. I will let Kraut have the first refusal.

I have just listened to the album "Uhrsprung" and I would agree to an inclusion. Any news on this?

Thanks for the bump. This looks okay for addition actually, but I'll double-check with the Krautrock Team.
