Sameti - Sameti (1972)
"A collection of Munich musicians fronted by Christian "Shrat" Thiele (born 29/3/1946, in Unterpolling) the former Amon Düül II vocalist/percussionist. The band was originally known as Konsameti, and existed over a year before the debut LP, with a constantly changing line-up. In fact, with the two albums billed as Sameti, only Shrat was in common, and as such they amounted to two very different bands...

The original band produced a music with trippy Amon Düül II and bluesy Hawkwind stylings, and in fact the whole album sounds as though it was made in an acid haze. It is especially notable for the stunning tripped-out improvised LP side-long work "Anotherwaytoseeimprovisation". Shrat's vocals, only heard rarely in Amon Düül II, come across as most strange, adding a unique touch to a highly derivative, but most enjoyable, blend of Krautrock styles." (Crack In The Cosmic Egg)

"After the recording of Amon Duul's "Yeti", Dave Anderson leaves the band to join Hawkwind. Dieter Serfas and Christian Shart do the same and decide to form their own project called Sameti in Munich in 1971.. Their first album released for Metronome in 1972 is a great mixture of Hawkwind and Amon Düül II trippy styles with long psych improvisations and a couple of more structured heavy rock songs. For this first musical essay the band features members of Embryo and Amon Düül II with special guests as Robert Eliscu (Popol Vuh) and Jurgen Benz." (
