Kluster - Zwei Osterei (1971)
Before Moebius & Roedelius were Cluster, they were, with Conrad Schnitzler, Kluster. Zwei Osterei is the second of Kluster's two studio albums, recorded live in Feb. 1970. Consisting of two LP- side long pieces, this experimental minimalism is chaotic, noisy and metallic, with weird dronings, strange industrial sounds, feedback - you get the picture. The second piece is 'instrumental', while the first piece features a very serious sounding spoken narrative in German.


Brainticket - Psychonaut (1972)
Brainticket's second album is a lot calmer, a lot less frantic than their first release, "Cottonwood Hill" In fact this is Joël Vandroogenbrock with a whole new band. Probably their most accessible album - trippy and relaxed, with some attempt at actual songs. As different as it is from their first classic release, this is still one of the great psychedelic albums, and will be enjoyed by any fan of psychedelic music. Short, though - only 32 minutes or so!


Hawkwind - Lost Chronicles (1987)
This two disc live recording of a performance at the Batschkapp, Frankfurt, on May 26, 1987 is one of the better bootlegs of mid-80's Hawkwind.

Angels Of Death
Assault And Battery
Lost Chronicles
Needle Gun
Rocky Paths
Waiting For Tomorrow
Master Of The Universe
Dreaming City
Dream Worker
Dust Of Time
Hassan I Sabha
(Bitrate 192)

Part 1 Part 2

Stan Ridgway - Poolside With Gilly (1991)
Fans of ex-Wall Of Voodoo Stan Ridgway will get exactly what they are looking for on this two-disc set, recorded live at The Strand in Hermosa Beach, CA. in 1991. Brilliant songs, wit and humor, great playing from the band Chapter Eleven.

Part 1 Part 2

Captain Ilor - Mindfuck (1998)
This CD features remastered recordings made in Germany between 1974 and 1977 by the mysterious Captain Ilor and his mysterious lyricist Swara Samrat, and the just-as-mysterious Mindfuck Band. This is one of those albums that when I heard just part of a track, I decided I needed to buy the CD. Man this is so good I can't believe I never heard of these boys until just recently! The music is maybe somewhere between Can and Amon Düül II. Excellent spacey psychedelic rock. Let me say again this is some hot stuff!!! If you like your music psychedelic, you need this. Then buy the CD! My rip @320, and I made jewel case artwork out of one of those awful digi-paks.

Liam is fighting back - these are very good news. All thumbs up.

But be careful old friend.

In my view these deletings are relative "friendly" acts. If they(?) can't stop you in
this way, they will try other, harder ones ... Your blog is too well known and there
is too much in the store. Everyone can look at the Rapidshare counters and do calculations.

At least you have two main types of visitors at your blog - regular ones and Newbies. The
first ones have usually done all their downloads and no problems with broken links. Why not
uploading the broken ones only on request? Let the community do the uploading and assist the
Newbies, let them give back some of the goodies, multiply the problems for the deleter ......

You are the captain of the blog, you don't have to do all the work alone. We need you, sailing in
front of the waves !!!!!! We are a living community and have to give back if we want to survive
with our ideas of sharing.

Hello My DEAR Friend
My name is behnam and I'm a progressive rock fan. I'm a flight attendant, I spend my spare time listening to music. I fly with MUSIC & JETS. In my country it's very difficult to find good music records. So far I have downloaded two masterpices from your amazing weblog and I have decided to download more...Thanks for the music.

My friend I believe in YOU and I admire your weblog and your efforts to keep music alive.
I love music and I beg You to repost deleted files again.
I wish you health and fortune, GOD bless You.

Sincerely Yours

Hi Liam it's great to read a more cheerful message and it sounds like you have a sense of humour. On with the music! It occurred to me that you could make it a bit more difficult to delete links by setting up the first link to a text file (on File Factory or somewhere similar) and then have the real link on the text file, maybe splitting the album into 2 parts on different servers, e.g. first tracks on F.F. and the rest on Rapidshare via Paylessofts. Maybe a bit of a 'hunt the thimble' game but more files to delete. Julie.

Are you sure this Captain Ilor isn't a fake???

btw: all the "bands" on "the krautrock archives" never existed. Temple, the nazgul, cozmic corridors... are just pseudonyms for british neo-psychedelic bands from the 90s (maybe partwise a little earlier). A big fake!
I am quite sure about it.

To anonymous 12:08 AM and 12:10 AM (November 13) :
Fake or not, I like it very much...I don't care if it's a band from de 90's or even 00's...and I think too, none cares about that, The realy important here and to me, is the good music (even is ABBA or not).
If you said "btw: all the "bands" on "the krautrock archives" never existed", doesn't matter to me.
This is really good music, and that's it

All good wishes for your continued blogging, at whatever pace suits you. Your commentary is always appreciated by those of us who are blissfully {?} ignorant of the history of psych and prog. For me, it is like having a baby later in life than usual -- one appreciates every detail so much more, and finding precious music is such a joy.

Hi Captain Ilor is not a fake! BUT, for sure this CD does not contain recordings from Germany from the 70s! This is just a Neo-Psychedelic Band from the 90s and they themselves do not claim any Kraurock relations! They have a couple of recordings on Couloured Rain Records. See:

Hi Liam. First off, thanks so much for what you do. I discovered your blog a bit late making me a newbie but am downloading as much as I can. I can see that you will be helping me expand my awareness of Krautrock - a goal I've had since the '70s (vinyl copies of Guru Guru live '78 and Grobscnitt's Solar Musik Suite). My tastes are all over the map and happily seem to be inline with yours. How could it be any better? Presently digging the Benny Goodman, Koerner, Ray And Glover, Ash Ra Tempel, Strawbs, and on and on. Dude you're my hero! I hope you can re-up the Stockholm Tull as I was too late.

I like metal a lot too and always tell my visitors to pay your site more attention.

BTW, thanks a lot for Hawkwind, is one of my favorite bands.
No wonder Motorhead is good either, hun? ;-)
