One could argue that Blind Childe is blind to the reality:
it appears to be a total opposite when comparing east rack to west in Germany.
You could speak of the predominance of "Krautrock" in the West, but was it really all that much a phenomenon?

Of course not. Your average German laughed or even reacted violently to the emerging Kraut "scene". I read in one book of - think - Faust's memory of a little girl coming on stage at one of their (20-30 people) audiences and asking , "Why are you doing this to us?"

Also, do not let the number of Kraut bands fool you - these were not always totally new bands. Like all scenes, there was much band member inter-breeding.

Recall seeing them back in 77 when I had just started uni.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way

I agree that in the seventies there wasn't an equivalent to Krautrock in the GDR. But in the eighties there were several experimental bands like AG Geige, Feeling B, Dekadance, Hard Pop, Kaltfront and Herbst in Peking. There even was a festival in 1985 in Coswig near Dresden called Intermedia where a lot of GDR underground bands where playing. It was announced as a Jazz festival to get the permission. After the two days when the Stasi saw what really was going on, the director of the cultural center in Coswig was fired. The problem of those bands was that they weren't allowed to play official concerts and publish their music. All these bands did their first records after 1989. In the point of allowing music which left the mainstream the GDR was much more rigid than most of the other eastern block countries. I had to smile when you mentioned that girl on a Faust concert asking "Why are you doing this to us?". I felt the same on a concert in 1992 in Frankfurt when Faust was blowing hay with big fans into the audience. I was near an allergic shock and had to leave the hall immediately.

I saw The Boomtown Rats about 77/78 too at the Glasgow Apollo. I was 11 or 12 first gig and was instantly in love with live music. Geldof was a great front man.

I was a bit older for my first gig, Paul Mcartney and Wings in 75 when they were at their peak. I also love seeing good bands live and that one started it off. Saw Elton John the following year, also at his peak.

fUCK bOOMTOWN rATS.
Wot are you, teenage giggly girls?


.......
Anyways, Gregor:
Today I am having an AMIGA HALLO GETDOWN PARTY!

Listening to a "best of" the V.A. Hallo lp series (vol 1-9) with mainly East Germ 70s rock bands - some of which , like Joco dev Sextet,Scirocco and Orchester klaus Lenz, never made it to lp release. But there are also Polish, Hungarian,Check bands like Omega,Skaldowie,M. Effekt and Panta Rhei here. I guess vol 10 - 13 concentrated more on the satellite countrys and less on East Germany, what with bands like Hungaria, Lift,Collegium Musicum,Breakout and Anawa.
