FRITZ MULLER ROCK-S/T, LP, 1977. GERMANY




An uber-rare and headscratchingly odd Nurse With Wound list item, Fritz Muller Rock was a Conny Plank-produced one-off project by one-time Kraftwerk/Neu! live member Eberhard Kranemann (he's featured on the legendary Kraftwerk "Ruckstop Gondelero" beat club footage). There are great gouts of dumbo hard rockin' ramalamma on display here to be sure (ranging from the weirdly amusing to outright atrocious) but these bits are bizarrely forced to cohabitate with incongruous outbursts that range in tone from glazed Floyd-ian grandiosity to an 8+ minute slab of acid fried psychosis called "Fritz Muller Traum", that sounds like Ron Geesin leading a marching band through an early Tangerine Dream synthetic vaporspace and which is obviously the reason for it's inclusion on "the list".

Note: link has been pulled as this has now been reissued.

As usual-how strange the unbelievable now became usual-thanks for the dayly flood of discoveries. Since you mention Geesin, though you already offered some of his works I'd wish there were more to come from this oddball grnius (maybe not a genius but close).

"Eberhard Kranemann (he's featured on the legendary Kraftwerk "Ruckstop Gondelero" beat club footage"

Hmmm. To me, it looks and sounds like Michael Rother (guitar), Klaus Dinger (drums), Florian Schneider (synth flute, rhythm violin). Eberhard Kranemann was in some lineups of early Kraftwerk, but I don't think this was one of them.

But anyway, thanks for uploading this, it's a legendarily rare album and Kraftwerk-related!
