Beyond the 130 - Amon Düül II

Postby Eddie Shah environment » 17 Jan 2015, 18:23

I always think the best music has to have one foot in the weird - but there has to be some conventional there in order for the weird to work.

This lot were basically hard rock with monster-man or operatic-woman vocals. But there was something else there - I suppose it's the German. They weren't naff in the slightest. They were Teutonic!

I can't really sell them to you in words - I fear some people have already been put off! but to me, they're second only to Can in the pantheon of great German music.

These are my two favourites:







I'll post more later if anyone appears to give a fuck.

Nothing like I imagined / remembered - not over-exposed to them in the past. Certainly never heard herself before. Was oddly reminded of Brit psych-folk and something Current 93 might have come up with. And the hard rock isn't that hard is it? Ooh I've got a wah wah and I know how to use it {i.e. not cluttering up some funk dirge.

I just can't get with the AD2. I've tried and tried - but it's too anglophone in sound for me.

Oh no,it means "English-speaking". I get that, the lyrics do jar more than if they were in German i.e. if I couldn't understand 'em.

The only album I have is Yeti and despite several plays it's not really working for me but then I hear tracks from other albums such as A Morning Excuse that Conny posted and a track or two chosen for the Prog Cup that I like so perhaps I just chose the wrong album.

Anyone care to give opinions on each of their albums?

Wolf City is my favourite, and maybe the most accessible - without compromising - of the ones I've heard.
