Grave biography
Founded in Bremen, Germany in 1970 - Disbanded around 1980 - Reformed in 1989

Grave were a band of teenagers that formed in the basement of a Brinkum (near Bremen) Youth House. With a primitive tape recorder, and using only two microphones, six tracks were recorded live in the studio (summer 1975), and the one and only album by Grave was released as 'Grave I' that year in a limited edition of 100 copies.

This was plain, straight forward and simple garage rock, like the fast competent rehearsals from a typical neighborhood teenage combo. Nevertheless the album has since become a hunted collector's item, and people are prepared to pay up to 1,000 DEM for it! Three more tracks recorded in 1975 were added to a reissue in the early 90's, and the other four of the seven bonus tracks included on the 1994 and 2003 CD reissues were recorded in 1989 under improved conditions.

3 stars This is pure German psychedelic, or Krautrock if you like. Nothing more and nothing less. More rocking than other, more electronic Kraut's, this is pure stoner's fantasy. This must have been done under influence of drugs, there's no other explanation.

This is album that is made by love and dreams that "we want to do something and we will do it, nothing can stop us". This is fun, enjoyment of their, music made for tripping and daydreaming.

Bonus tracks are somehow good, but more like good as the rest of album. There's even one rock'n'roll song guys. That's it, nothing more. Of course, I can say more and more words, do consistent review and I would do it if I were "Man of Many Words", but I'm not.

3(+), not so innovative Prog, even quite good though. But this review is not much better, so I suppose it's fine.

Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition. and to yam yam for the last updates
