Forgotten Krautrock

Mœbius* & Plank* - Rastakraut Pasta (1980, Vinyl) | Discogs

The creative power of the German Krautrock scene was immense. Many artist of this era got their achievement from Great Britain first were they were named as a massive influence to many bands. A lot of albums from the Krautrock era were classics and others are forgotten. In 1979 Dieter Moebius, one of the most important protagonists of avant-garde electronic music in Germany and former part of Cluster and Harmonia released his first of three collaborations with legendary sound engineer of German Underground Conny Plank. Rastakraut Pasta is the result of a playground when musicians combine diverse elements of Krautrock, some avant-garde pop, new German electronica with even sporadic echoes of reggae. The results are songs dominated by great dubby bass-lines mostly played by Can's Holger Czukay, straight drums and the electronic excursions of Moebius. Never heard like this before and after.
