Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars First two albums of electronic duet Moebius-Plank, re-released on one CD (and first ever release of both albums in US). Dieter Moebius is known by his work in Kluster/Cluster, and Plank almost all the time was member or non-official member /collaborator of both German early progressive electronic projects.

Albums are slightly different between each other. The first one , "Rastakraut Pasta", is downbeat electronic/minimalistic sound, quite simplistic and accessible. Both musicians ( Dieter plays synth, guitars, flute,sings and Plank is engineer, but works with sounds and affects) are mixing some industrial, kraut-rock, space-electronic sounds and even dub. There is Can bassist Holger Czukay presented on three tracks as well.

Music reminds a bit Can ,but more German early electronic experimental works, mostly Kraftwerk. Second album has much better organised structure ,faster rhythm and demonstrates proto-electronic dance music in many cases.

Being quite experimental works for its time, looking from now this double-album release sounds a bit naive, but still could attract listeners, interested in early electronic progressive rock.
