Ever the entrepreneur of new musical revolutions, Wolfgang Dauner hatched the idea for one of the most elaborate con-jobs in Krautrock history. He managed to relaunch the Wolfgang Dauner Group as Et Cetera and promoted them as a new band, with an LP cover that was eye-catchingly psychedelic, and deliberately obscure in its references as to who the musicians were. And so, despite being on a jazz label, the album ET CETERA was launched onto the rock buying market. Amazingly Dauner's radical concoction of rock, jazz, ethnic and avant-garde musics caught the attention of many, Et Cetera being voted as newcomer band of the year in a German Sounds readers poll, despite the fact that the band had actually been in existence since 1968 (under various names) and recorded numerous albums! ET CETERA itself is an extraordinary album of weirdly trippy fusion that rides somewhere between instrumental Amon Düül II, Embryo and Dauner's own earlier classic OUTPUT. Full of ethnic and avant-garde elements, with lots of ethnic colour added by Sigi Schwab and his vast range of instruments, and many surprises, not least notable being the offbeat poem "Lady Blue".
All three Et Cetera albums were full of surprises, not least so in that excepting Wolfgang Dauner and Fred Braceful, the rest of the band was different on each album. Totally unexpected is the Hendrixy song by Larry Coryell that opens KNIRSCH, contrasting totally with the rest of album. And then there's the double live album which featured all new compositions and the talents of newcomers: the avant-gardist Jürgen Schmidt-Oehm and former Eulenspygel member Matthias Thurow. There's lots of great spacey Embryo styled fusion on this, archetypal Dauner riffing jazz topped by his unique keyboard style, avant-garde experimental works, and a trippy blues that recalls Beaver & Kraus' "Walking Green Algae Blues" and even a synthesizer track!
