>Hey Folks...
>At the webpage for that Dutch one-dayer in April (where Litmus is confirmed

>widdly stuff.  But that suits me fine.  Oh, and has anybody heard this
>CD featuring the Conner Brothers from Screaming Trees?  The Roadburn folks
>seem to suggest it's quite space-rocky.
>Ciao...Grakkl (FAA)
>P.S. Set-list from last night's Krautrockpalast broadcast on WDR Koeln.

>Quick thoughts...it was pretty cool to see
>these bands on TV, esp. AD2 and Guru Guru. As you might imagine,
>their performances were in one sense the most chaotic and mistake-
>prone, but then they were also by far the most experimental*
>and 'true' to the krautrock ideal, so of course they were the most
>enjoyable. AD2 played better than I had expected, and a great
>setlist, in most every way, except that HP Leopold is now playing
>crappy electronic drums which didn't work for me at all during the
>real 'rock' parts. Jan Kahlert was also there, with his much superior
>electronic kit (his sounded more like real drums than Leopold's).
>So percussion for AD2 was a real problem. Karrer played some great
>guitar though (Kanaan was the coolest track live), and Renate was in
>good form. Took lots of liberties with the phrasing of many lines,
>but then the original phrasings were already so strange and chaotic
>than changing them hardly degrades the song.
>*Luigi Archetti, as he often does, played lots of freak-out guitar
>last night, which was cool.
