The Motorik Pleasures of Golden-Age Krautrock

Posted by on Fri, Jan 10, 2014 at 12:03 PM

(Lo-Fi) Some of the greatest music in history happened in late-’60s/early-’70s Germany, as restless jugend strove to carve out musical identities detached from their parents’ Nazi-tainted culture and distinct from dominant Anglo-American rock traits. Voilà, krautrock. Tonight, in the second edition of a concept spawned by DJ Mamma Casserole, several bold Seattle musicians pay tribute to this rewarding vein of adventurous rock by covering songs from the catalogs of Can, Kraftwerk, Neu!, Faust, Manuel Göttsching, Guru Guru, and others. It’s going to get very kosmische. (Disclosure: I’m DJing part of the night.) With Tredecimal, Low Hums, Blue Light Curtain, Chris Cheveyo (Rose Windows), and DJ Explorateur.
