PANKO MUSIK-WEILES SO SCHON PERLT, TAPE, 1983 (RECORDED: 1971), GERMANY




KRAUTROCK ALERT! Hopefully that will have gotten your attention, though I fear many a psych/prog collector will have inadvertently blown past this post regardless, not realizing a lost slice krautrock history might in fact be tucked away on the decaying magnetic tape of a cassette-only release. Such was this lot's luck that their sole extant material would only find a home on a wholly forgotten little tape, self-released by one of the band members circa the early 80's, though perhaps some enterprising label will see this and come to the rescue (hello Garden Of Delights...you there?). Panko Musik, while not exactly arbiters of radical innovation were certainly capable enough purveyors of that archetypical stoned jazzy jam band strain of krautrock associated with the likes of Missus Beastly, Thirsty Moon, Missing Link and Erna Schmidt; riffing, vamping and tootling along in that engaging if slightly slack way that this wing of the German underground of the period had down cold.

Hello, I just found the way to your blog through a newsletter. My name is Muck (har-di-har), and I'm the person who recorded/restored and mastered several Embryo/Guru/Xhol releases for G.O.D -- probably Walter hasn't seen your ambitiuous pages so far ...

Downloaded the Panko tape now, and will burm a CD to send to Walter and hear what he thinks abot it.

Keep on rocking,

Muck
