2 cool progressive Krautsongs with organ, flute, nice guitar and good vocals.
Already compiled on 2 CDs, so not "under the radar" anymore.
Great addition to any Krautrock collection, but a tough find.

On my search for Missus Beastly Singles, I found this crazy gem on the legendary Electric Bird label.
Both songs are guitar and vocals only. Side A uses some delays and effects to make it a cosmic Folk jam with german vocals.
Side B is in English and ... See full review

A really cool and freaky jam, which sounds like Witthüser & Westrupp meet Can on bad Acid.
One of the coolest Krautrock on 45 gems I know of. Not easy to find, but worth every penny.

Some people have no idea how genre & style tags on Discogs work.
If a song has an influence of a certain style, it can be added. The genre is, in this case, Rock and POP.
The 2nd style used is POP ROCK.
That means, this is a Rock/Pop tune with some ... See full review

Both songs are dreamy, spacey, progressive Krautrock with some nice Mellotron action.
This great single comes in a fancy gatefold sleeve with the cool green Toncooperative Hannover sticker inside. Another great find related to Toncooperative Hannover.

Interesting Krautpsych from a Greek/German band, released on legendary Trefiton label.
Strange enough, it seems that most copies found their way to Greece. Most copies for sale are minty and in Greece. The "78" in cat# on label suggests this single is ... See full review

A style tag does not always mean, that the release is 100% this style. It can also mean, that there are influences of this style. If you feel other styles are missing, you can simply add them. Your crusade doesn't make any sense to me, specially when ... See full review

3 complex progressive Krautrock songs, all 3 are non LP tracks.

Another great Toncooperative Hannover 7" which fits nicely in any Krautrock collection.

Spot on A2. "Señor Presidente" is a nice folky dreamy Krautsong, the instrumental parts reminding me a little bit on "Gravediggers arm, is waiting for you...". Nice find.

Der rote Punkt (red point) was a short lived movement in Germany at the end of 60's.
People put a red point sign in their cars. It meant, they were willing to pick up random strangers.

Typical leftwing 80's Krautrock with political lyrics against nucelear power, the goverment and police. Obviously inspired by Ska. The title "1984" refers to George Orwell.
The song also appears on the 2nd Trikont album.

All 4 songs are simply great, what a cool EP this is.
Funky, jazzy, a good portion of Psychadelic, garnished with some early Krautrock feel. One of the very few Kraut 7"es which got repressed, but one song was remixed on the Reissue. Not easy to find a ... See full review
