Used to love going clubbing to Desert Storm, Slam, Optimo and occasionally Colours.

Nowadays though most of it seems as if someone's being half tooling with fruity loops and I've went backwards to the Kosmische Rock of Neu, Can, Cluster and the like.

Good stuff. Though usually when krautrock is mentioned in the context of electronic music, the first thing that leaps to mind is Harmonia :dopey:


Well not mine. Heh. Harmonia are also exceptionally good, of course they are just made up of members from Cluster and Neu, still you are utterly right to add them. A lot of the ubiquitous drum samples in the late eighties early nineties were whipped from such bands, if the producers of the music were not so lazy that they just knocked off Clyde Stubblefields "Funky Drummer". I got so fucking sick of hearing that.
