Tonight on The Castle - Kraut-Out #1 - A Kosmische Slow-Tanz Party!

In light of Raspberry Bulbs' need to reschedule their debut live performance, originally slated for tonight's Castle broadcast (and rescheduled for next week's show), I'm whipping out something I've had in the mental works for a long time. Not nearly enough classic Krautrock (60s-70s ursprünglich-type) gets played on the radio, though WFMU, if anywhere, sees it sprinkled into its freeform programming fairly liberally, and I've been devising an all-Krautrock show for the minds curious, and the minds not yet fully blown. Krautrock has been a favorite of mine since the early 80s (when the genre itself was actually dwindling in importance), and it's high time The Castle devoted a substantial three hours to its greatness. I'm not necessarily reaching for the rarest of raritäten here (though you can expect a few), merely a celebration of that unique, post-hippie Germanic take on "Innovativ Schwingungen," for your enjoyment.

Tune in at Mitternacht.
