Oh, this TAU record is really boring german prog rock - I would not label this as kraut - but I know in the 70ties every prog rock stuff from germany was called krautrock :-).anyway - I've noticed that Mr. Helge Scheider - one of the greates german comedians and musicans - played saxophon at one track. Helge Schneider come from Mühlheim/Ruhr and played in several projects at these times.He played with Bröselmaschine as far as I know. Maybe TAU came from the same region in west germany.http://www.helge-schneider.debest - marcus
The first comment I saw is notreally exciting but I'm happyto discover it,thanks for beingcurious
I'd almost say this was more like demented cabaret. (Though definitely not without the prog weirdness going on.) The first song almost reminded me of Sparks!
