Featuring in the first show is Arktis, Schick Furhs & Frohling, Conrad Schnitzler, Et Cetera, Kraftwerk, Harmonia & Eno, Novalis, Thirsty Moon, and Sugar Ray Buckmiller. Full play list: Arktis – Great Spring Feeling Formed in 1973, the band released their first album the same year. This self title album revisits a conventional heavy rock style mixed with freak out improvisations largely made of fuzzy guitars. The second album from 1975 comprised mainly improvisations without firm aims or limitations in structure. This difference is already indicated by the album’s title “Arktis tapes”. Although in perfect condition after 19 years, the master tapes were additionally remastered. Schick, Furhs & Frohling – Pictures SCHICKE, FÜRHS & FRÖHLING is one of the most amazing prog acts to ever come out of Germany. Instilling their symphonic sound with elements of space rock, avant-garde electronics and fusion, their style turns out to be very rich and dynamic, combining light and shade in a perfect balance. Eduard SCHICKE (drums, percussion, moog drum) and Heinz FRÖHLING (guitars, bass, synthesizer, mel otron), who had already been colleagues in the recently split SPEKTAKEL (one of the major German prog acts at the time), met keyboardist Gerard FÜHRS playing electric piano in a music store, sometime I nearly 1975. Conrad Schnitzler – Underwater Church Schnitzler was born in Düsseldorf. A co-founder of 23:01 West Berlin’s Zodiak Free Arts Lab, he was an early member of Tangerine Dream (1969–1970) and a founder of the band Kluster. He left Kluster in 1971, first working with his group Eruption and then focusing on solo works. Schnitzler participated in several collaborations with other electronic musicians. Conrad Schnitzler died from stomach cancer on 4 August 2011 in Berlin. His putput was prolific, and he worked with just about everyone in the Berlin Kosmiche scene! ET Cetera – SUN Et Cetera is a German jazz rock band. Members include Wolfgang Dauner keys, Sigi Schwab on guitar, and Fred Braceful on drums. They are best known for their self-titled 1971 debut album Et Cetera. Their second album, Knirsch, features Larry Coryel on guitar and Jon Hiseman on drums. Et Cetera was a shortlived installment in the early days of Krautrock, but seen from a modern perspective and in the larger scope of what the scene was all about, it seems only proper to call this outfit one of the true pioneers of the scene. Harmonia and Eno – ‘Welcome In 1971, the duo of Moebius and Roedelius, also known as Cluster, moved to the rural village of Forst, West Germany. Michael Rother put his project Neu! on hold in early 1973 to form the band Harmonia with Roedelius and Moebius.

Novalis – High Evolution This is the first album of this German band coming out of Hamburg They have nothing to do with experimental Krautrock; there is nothing weird about their music, on the contrary what they’re doing is just writing and playing beautiful music.
