Tago Mago with Krautzone - An Interview

Um verdadeiro supergrupo do submundo dos bons sons, membros do Electric Moon, The Pancakes e Zone Six forma o transcendental Krautzone, o nome já explica muita coisa, Kraut da pesada, mas da pesada mesmo, pode colocar tudo que você já ouviu por aí dos clássiscos can, Faust, NEU! passando por Hankwind, psicodelia lisérgica xamânistíca e você dará de cara ccom o Krautzone.

Lamp of the Universe é o recém esporro viajante, muito pra maluco, feita por malucos e direcionada para além disso.

Soa confuso? Pode ser, é efeito da música do Krautzone.

***** Interview with Krautzone *****

Q: When did Krautzone starts, tell us about the history...
Onkel Kaktus: Krautzone founded in October 2011. We spontaneously decided jamming togetherafter we met on a festival the night before. Some of us knowing each other for years and another ones met the first time. Originally we only wanted play for ourselves and no one had any thoughts of founding a band, but the result of these really magical recordings were absolutely great - so we decided to continue as a band and bring out a record. That's the birth of Krautzone...

Q: Who are your influences?
Onkel Kaktus: 60s/70s Psychedelic, Krautrock ect. and of course vintage low budget SciFi-Movies.

Dave: for me plus electronic music, spacerock...

Lulu: well, at least - the same.

Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time…
Dave: OK, let's all name ONE album! Mine is Tangerine Dream-Rubicon.

Martin: can´t do that. to much wonderful albums.

Lulu: That's not possible for me. There is so much great music and my favourites changed all the time.

Onkel Kaktus: I totally agree with Lulu and Martin!

Q. How do you fell playing live?
Dave: We never had a proper gig, so, no words about...

Q. How do you describe Krautzone sounds?
Onkel Kaktus: Mystical and hypnotic soundscapes which take you to a journey to another worlds. Archaic rhytms meet sounds from the future. And above all they're very unique.

Lulu: And cosmic timeless state.. ...

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Onkel Kaktus: Well, we simply enter the studio when we're in the mood. Someone starts to play and the others join in. Everything's totally improved...

Lulu: And this is not often possible because we're spreaded in different parts of Germany. So we arrange a meeting from time to time and let it happen...

Dave: Like the Krautvester, where we recorded the songs for the split LP with Lamp Of The Universe! And some new Zone Six tracks, hehehhe...

Lulu: Sula Bassana

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
