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.

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.
