It's the one genre that a few years ago I knew the least about, but recently have been the most amazed by and obsessed with.
I was at a record store today and saw a book that discussed several bands of the genre in detail. I don't usually like books like that, because it often seems that the author gets it wrong, but I did take down the names of the bands that it covers.
Just hoping to get some dialogue going in regards to the genre, there doesn't seem to be a specific thread about it yet, so why not?
Below are the bands the book lists (in bold are the ones that I have at minimum a basic familiarity with). It appears I actually have downloaded albums of several of the other bands, but for the most part haven't gotten around to listening to them. Any suggestions as to particular bands/albums to look into are welcome and appreciated.
Amon Düül II
Ash Ra Tempel
Et Cetera/Wolfgang Dauner
Floh de Cologne
Witthüser & Westrupp
