and Roedelius is my Navigator.

Moebius makes the tea.

Harmonia.......HARMONIA!!

Being a Krautrock nut, it’s quite likely that I will fire off many posts dedicated to the awesomeness of motorik (boom boom tshk! boom boom tshk!) and ambient (plink, plonk…hum) rock n roll. Today’s post from me (sorry we have been a little slack in the last week, but we have land to plough and women to attend to) features a piece by Harmonia the uhh, i suppose “super” group of kraut rock. The line-up was mainly comprised of Micheal Rother from Neu with Roedelius and Moebius from Cluster over several studio albums, the last of which also featured Eno as one of the principal players. Please fly like winged beasts hungry for the flesh of knowledge to this quivering carcass HERE.

Jan Jelinek turns “parp” and “oo-wee-twoo” into “click” and “pop”.

It’s very nice too.

Several years ago he made a rekid called Loop-finding-jazz Records. It was comprised of many, many micro samples and processed recordings all from jazz music records. I find it perfectly inhabits a place, a medium between dance and ambient music.

jazzzzzz....innit

I’ve used the song below in many dj sets, it kicks click & hiss ass and the waves come over you like the ocean to a doomed mariner! Boom! Here’s a video for another song of the same album. I find it hard to believe this was on MTV…ha, awesome.

Ok, that’s your lot for today, we be busy men. There’s women to plough and land to attend to.
