The Day After The Sabbath 19: Kraut Rockin'

Download from [mf] or [mg]
pass:  tdats

This special volume features music from Germany, connected to the 'Krautrock' movement of the 70s. There's a mix of trippy instrumentals, English and German vocals, and some more conventional rockers. I have tried to stick to the more accessible end of the genre and shortish track lengths, except for the epic closer from 'My solid Ground', which is a great trip through all the moods they display on their eponymous album. The K.W. track here is quite a special thing indeed, it's taken from a 1971 Radio Bremen broadcast, before their wholly electronic incarnation. To me it sounds astoundingly like a Kyuss riff dictionary, as does the whole Bootleg it's taken from.

Thanks for listening! Rich

This volume begins with the heavy psych of South Africans 'Freedom's Children'. Angel come next with some brilliant heavy showman prog and Coven hit with their style that by '74 had changed substantially from the occult '69 debut. There is an interview with Coven's organist Rick Durrett here at Psychedelic Baby webzine. Goliath show a unique mix of southern rock and prog. Ocean from France attack with some great off-kilter hard prog and the Japanese Bow Wow impress with their rock solid proto-NWOBHM. Death precursor hardcore punk by years and the comp ends with Unida's cover of Leaf Hound, taken from the leaked version of their infamously unreleased album 'The Great Divide'.

The Day After The Sabbath 17: Evil Woman

Download from  [mf] or [mg]
pass:  tdats
This special volume features music with female vocals, making for a varied collection that was a lot of fun to compile. Track 1 'Pieces of Me' features Linda Hoyle, the singer from the Vertigo-signed Affinity. Track 2 is from The Runaways, where Joan Jett's career started and track 3 is a nice slab of stonery groove from Australia's Mcphee. Room's 'War' reminds me favourably in form and theme of 'War Pigs'. Arktis are  regarded as part of the Kraut Rock movement while Aguaturbia, Brainticket and Fifty Foot Hose all offer up some excellent heavy psych, track 11 is a Dutch pop/rock band who are noted for their single hit, the much-covered 'Venus'. The Savage Rose finish up with the atmospheric doomy 'A Trial In Our Native Town'.

TRACKS:
01. Linda Hoyle - Pieces Of Me - 1971
02. -
03. McPhee - The Wrong Time - 1970
04. Room - War - 1970

With this compilation I have attempted to compile some tracks that were all released before 1970. I find this brief period in the late 60s fascinating and here are a few lesser-known bands who were playing hard around that time, along with a couple of tracks from well-known bands that fit into the sound.

01) Tucky Buzzard - Heartbreaker - 1969
02) Fuse - Show Me - 1968
03) Fields - Take You Home - 1969
04) Pulse - Hypnotized - 1969
05) The 31 Flavors - Distortions Of Darkness - 1969
06) Aguaturbia - Rollin And Tumblin - 1969
07) Gun - It Won't Be Long (Heartbeat) - 1968
08) Taste - Same Old Story - 1969
09) Mount Rushmore - Toe Jam - 1969
10) Cuby + Blizzards - Appleknockers - 1969
11) -
12) The Firebirds - No Tomorrows - 1969
13) Yesterdays Children - Hunter's Moon - 1969
14) Plus - Gluttony; Something Is Threatening Your Family - 1969
