Xhol - Motherfuckers Live (1968/1969/2001)
First off, a big thank you to Muck K. who ripped this and uploaded almost 800 MB for us, along with nice scans too! Muck has been toiling behind the krautrock scene since the late 60's and agreed to share this only because it is out of print. I have seen this in lossless once before, but without the third disc. Anyway what you get here are two complete performances by this seminal krautrock band, one from 1968 and the other from 1969, and a short third disc with a few Xhol covers by Current 93/Nurse With Wound. The second disc shows an Xhol that's different from their regular releases, basically a huge dark jam. If you like your krautrock edgy, experimental, dark, and maybe even a little violent this will be right up your alley! Thanks again to Muck for uploading this gem in it's complete state.

Disc 1 is essentially an outtake of "Xhol Caravan - Altena 1969"
and the whole MF Live set was released as a tribute 5 years before G.O.D.s complete release of most of Xhols' recorded live events.

You'll probably find MP3 versions of single tracks on SoulSeek - or
better go here:
