Man, I had this mellow, and these cats just harshed it.
Can someone talk about these folks? Keefu, Lurchi, Merzbau? Kind of enjoying this, as well as that Moonshake track. Am I so young ... ? How is this Krautrock?
They're krautrock, despite the Japanese singer in the video. They were a majority German group besides the position of the singer.
They're also important for bringing a lot of avant garde influence to other bands who came after. Bands from The Fall, Talking Heads to Radiohead have cited them. They're pretty awesome! Their three most important albums are Tago Mago, Ege Bamyasi, and Future Days but Ege Bamyasi is your best bet if you're just starting out. Give them a try.
Delay 1968 is my favorite Mooney era album.
I kind of think everything past "Soon Over Babaluma" isn't too great. "Flow Motion" gets a "kind of okay" rating from me.
