'THE UNKNOWN KRAUTROCK UNDERGROUND 1972-1976' - 'Cologne Curiosities' collects, for the first time on vinyl, all the otherwise unpublished/un-reissued material that originally appeared on the three 'Unknown Deutschland - The Krautrock Archive' CD's, released by Virgin in 1996. These recordings date from 1972-1976 and were made at studios in Cologne and surroundings. The material was produced by Toby Robinson, mainly to have fun at the studio. Bands would come in for practice sessions, to record demos, and during slack periods impromptu jams would happen. Most of these sessions were recorded by Toby, and they feature Toby himself plus a revolving cast of friends and musicians (some of them apparently big Kraut names using made up monikers). The music ranges from killer proto-new wave to far-out space rock, proto-ambient electronic, dark kraut psyche and raw kosmische sounds with lots of analogue synths/Moog.
TRACKS:
01. The Astral Army - Interstellar Shortwave
02. Spirulina - The Message
03. Chronos - Schaudernacht
04. Neil Andersen - Feuerwerk
05. Baal - No God/Astaroth
06. Ten To Zen - Innerst
07. Fuerrote - Ganz Wie Du Willst

Also available: COLOGNE CURIOSITIES (CD).
