Working in a second-hand record shop in the West End of London, one of the questions we were most frequently asked is to be pointed in the right direction of a decent KRAUTROCK vinyl or CD compilation - with perhaps a little bit of Electronic, Experimental, Avant Garde and Trippy Soundtrack stuff thrown in for good measure. Well - look no further ye music adventurers - because this little 2CD sensation from Soul Jazz Records of London is the answer...

Details first - originally credited as "Elektronische Music" on 2CD card promos that circulated in March 2010 - it was scheduled for Monday, 5 April 2010 release but then delayed to 12 April and the word "Deutsche" added on at the beginning. For this review I’ve included track timings, the original vinyl LP each song is taken from and the year of release.

UK released April 2010 - "Deutsche Elektronische Musik: Experimental German Rock And Electronic Musik 1972-83" by VARIOUS ARTISTS is a 2CD set on Soul Jazz Records SJR CD213 (Barcode 5026328302133) and plays out as follows:

Disc 1 (77:31 minutes):
1. A Spectacle by CAN [5:39 minutes] (from “Can”, 1978)
2. Devotion by BETWEEN [3:46 minutes] (from “And The Waters Opened”, 1973)
3. Dino by HARMONIA [features Michael Rother of Neu! and Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster] [3:29 minutes] (from “Musik Von Harmonia”, 1974)
4. This Morning by GILA [5:45 minutes] (from “Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee”, 1973)
5. Rambo Zambo by KOLLECTIV [11:39 minutes] (from “Kollectiv”, 1973)
6. La Chasse Aux Microbes by MICHAEL BUNDT [8:30 minutes] (from “Just Landed Cosmic Kid”, 1977)
7. Filmmuzik by E.M.A.K. [Elektronische Musik Aus Koeln] [3:15 minutes] (from “E.M.A.K.”, 1982)

Over the last few months.. and possibly years.. I have found myself becoming more and more disillusioned with ('popular') music. I think this reached a zenith just before I departed from HMV in June 2008. My cd collection had started to become unwieldy again, and I was buying things for the sake of owning them. This I might add is not an uncommon problem for record shop employees.
Although I also might add at this point, that 'record shop employee' is sadly, a phenomenally redundant description of HMV etc employees.
So when you're in trouble you call on a friend, this one being Simon. He had been on tour as photographer for a 'super-duo' and I felt his ligging credentials were top notch. Plus the fact he's a top bloke with a musical listening history similar to mine.
So he suggested Deutsche Electronische Musik - the best (and maybe only) 100% quality early 70s German Electronica cd compilation there is. I hesitate to use the term Krautrock - but if it helps - there it is. This compilation is brought to us by the same people who came up with 100% Dynamite! Ska, Soul and Rocksteady - not obvious bedfellows.
I now find myself posting this because I appear to have been given some musical hope. I still cannot find anything new/contemporary that doesn't sound derivative or, frankly, beardy and fleet of fox... (I do like them - just hate seeing them on the cover of EVERY magazine over the last 3 months. Go away.).
So as a result of buying this cd, I have purchased some Neu, Harmonia and Cluster. I seem to like the Roedelius, Moebius and Rother stuff mainly, but it also has re-kindled my Kraftwerk love too.
I also recommend the BBC documentary Krautrock - The Rebirth Of Germany which features some AMAZING footage, and is so inspirational.

Beyond the odd Kraftwerk album and the BBC Krautrock documentary, my accquaintance with this music genre was limited in the extreme. It was a remembrance of said documentary and Mark Barry's excellent review here on Amazon plus a trawl around You Tube which finally convinced me if I didn't buy this set, I'd be missing out. Deutsche Elektronische Musik is fabulous in every way and entirely accessible. The music is diverse but all of it sounds to me like the finest soundtrack for the European arthouse movie that seems to be constantly playing in my head in between moments of mundane necessity. This music sounds fresh and contemporary. Not for the first time, I find myself delighted by a genre which frankly did not appear to be too highly rated at the time I sloped about the streets with a copy of NME in my hot little mitts. I recall back then Tangerine Dream were regarded as a bit of a throwback, certainly something that was no longer relevant. Ironic then that now this stuff sounds so modern by comparison to so much of the punk/new wave output from thirty or so years ago. The one thing these tunes will certainly do if you have an imagination is to let your imagination soar. There is a sweep and a long horizon about much of this music. It is clipped somehow, unmistakably Germanic, yet flowing, steeped in staccato emotion and a kind of grandeur. Of course Vol 2 is wishlisted already and I hope the folk at Soul Jazz can cast still more pearls before swine like us. Don't think too hard - this needs buying.
