A free form jazz mentality, avoiding musical clichés and commercialism, has always characterized the music and philosophies of German freak 'n roll band Guru Guru who have categorically occupied their own special stage within the realms of modern music. From its LSD induced origins in the late '60s to its present day configuration which still rocks and grooves with intensity, countless personnel changes have occurred making it more of a succession of musical ventures and concepts under the moniker Guru Guru, which came about as a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Beatles and their guru worshipping of the late '60s…

Ax Genrich was the original guitarist for krautrock pioneers Guru Guru, as two unreleased Guru Guru tracks are on this disc, "Electric Junk" from 1971 and "Oxymoron" lifted from a Beat Club TV show. "Blow-Up" is a mind-scrambling cut off Genrich's 1994 'Psychedelic Guitar' CD and "Come Back" is from his 1995 'Wave Cut' effort…

Spacebox is the solo project of Uli Trepte (Guru Guru bass player, also member of early Neu! and Faust). Two albums have been released: "Spacebox" (1979) and "Kick Up" (1984). "Kick Up" includes many of the same crew, with the percussionist the only difference. The record is far less noisy than the debut, leaving behind the harsh distortions to let the individual instruments come out more clearly. "Kick Up" is far more groove-laden and more instrumental, perhaps getting closer to Trepte's concept of "an authentic, cyclic structured, modal collective [of] improvised, electric live music…

This trio (Dieter Moebius from Cluster, Jürgen Engler from Die Krupps & Mani Neumeier from Guru Guru) came together for four days in 1996 to record the album "Other Places". Though the album was labeled "Cosmic Couriers 1" no second album ever materialized. The three musicians did work together again in 2007 as part of Amon Guru.

"Hinten" is the sophomore album by Guru Guru which effectively confirms this power trio as a crucial item for the development of the krautrock movement that by 1971 had already become a melting pot of various sonic offerings converging on a common purpose of augmenting the language of rock and creating a peculiar edge to the avant-garde ideals that were being instilled in popular culture. This album is also famous (and infamous) for the cover photograph: a not too athletic male behind bearing a coarse tattoo that spreads on both buttocks. Well, the idea is clear in its intention to go against the two most recurrent trends in rock album sleeves: either a display of psychedelic figures based on a Modernistic approach or a manifestation of fantastic landscapes and characters where Surrealism and Romanticism unite. Not on this album sleeve, just that "lovingly" ugly image that I've already described and never will describe again.

Guru Guru's debut album shows why the band, even if it never reached the levels of appreciation and influence the likes of Can or Neu! did, still maintained a healthy reputation over the moons for its early work. Opening number "Stone In" has a quite appropriate title for a starting track – it is wonderfully tripped out, to be sure, and if Manuel Gottsching was more of a guitar god, Genrich kicks up a lot of frazzled noise. The principle of the Trepte/Neumeier rhythm section seems to have been "find loud weird grooves and then play them, sometimes chaotically." Again, they aren't Can's wickedly effective combination of Holger Czukay and Jaki Leibezeit, but they're not just falling over themselves either.

The third album from the essential Krautrock power trio Guru Guru's early forays is as essential to the avant-rock collector as Faust's Faust Tapes, Can's Tago Mago, and the early experiments of Kraftwerk and Neu! Dating from 1972, it's an unprecedented display of drone-rock on the heavier, psychedelic side of the '70s German underground. Guru Guru's lineup changed periodically, and throughout the '70s, the project took contributions from Conny Plank and Hans-Joachim Roedelius, among others, and were tightly connected with the Kraftwerk off-shoot Harmonium. This album is undoubtedly one of their greater works, alongside UFO and Hinten recorded by the essential trio of Ax Genrich on guitar, Uli Trepte on bass, and leader Mani Neumeier on drums and keyboards.

Summer of 1976. The young German left found itself in a state of shock: Ulrike Meinhof, co-founder of the Baader-Meinhof Gang, had hanged herself in her cell at Stuttgart-Stammheim prison on 9 may. A temporary low-point in a political drama which ruled germany in the 1970s and also left its mark on culture and rock music…

Bardo Pond are an American psychedelic rock band formed in 1991, and who are currently signed to London based label Fire Records. Bardo Pond's drug-inspired music is often classified as space rock, acid rock, post-rock, shoegazing, noise or psychedelic rock. Many Bardo Pond album titles have been derived from the names of esoteric psychedelic substances. Their sound has been likened to Pink Floyd, Spacemen 3 and My Bloody Valentine amongst others.
