This recording is as close to improvisational “free” jazz as I’m willing to ever venture. Can never just play their last record, they deconstruct, reconstruct or completely destroy it at every opportunity.
These astounding recordings from 1968/1969 is empirical proof that these Germans were just so far ahead of the game. The Stooges, who are often regarded as the granddaddy’s of punk didn’t record their debut until 1969.
If you haven’t listened to this band, I urge you to drop everything and do so right now! Start with this fantastic record, circa 1972, then work your way up from 1969’s “Monster Movie” through to 1973’s “Future Days”.
