Welcome back to Love That Album: The Compilation Edition.
For episode 9, Eric takes a look at two pretty different albums. First of all, he discusses “Deutsche Elektronische Musik: Experimental German Rock and Electronic Music 1972-83” from the excellent Soul Jazz label. He goes into the fascinating history of what became Kraut Rock created by the German generation following World War 2. A mixture of jazz, soundscapes, funk, and electronic sounds, this was something all its own. The compilation features bands like Can and Neu!
Next up, Eric discusses “Tribute to the Groovie Ghoulies: When The Kids Go Go Crazy”. They were a punk pop band that were influenced by 60s pop stuff as well as the Ramones. As per their name, their songs included fun tributes to horror films. Bands paying their respects on the tribute album include The Sonic Dolls and Zombina and the Skeletones.
Another excellent episode from Eric you should get behind.
