Supernatural Probabilities - A Mix by Bluemeaney
I've been threatening to make a Krautrock/Kosmische mix for quite some time. A forthcoming trip to Berlin, sealed the deal. I'm a little bit obsessed with the experimental music that emerged in Germany in the 60's and 70's. You will probably know the likes of Kraftwerk, Neu! and Can, but there's a wealth of wonderful oddball music from this period.
The term Krautrock,meaning Deutsch Rock was first used by English journalist Ian McDonald in 1972 to define the emerging German scene after 1968. Krautrock, all in all, included several bands that includes a huge range of different musical styles, and which were only similar in their attitude of creativity and experimentation. If there is a real common ground in all of this artists that may be the talent that they had to create their own music language with an extreme lack of resources, in a totally underground level, and in a country that was completely out of the commercial rock market
