A (snotty) BBC crictic once said, "there are two kinds of aesthetics: a German and a French." This week we considered the "German" approach towards rock/pop music. Essentially, Krautrock combines the rigor of German avant-garde (many Krautrock musicians were trained under the like of Stockhausen) with the free spirit of American/British rock and roll. We here at No Wave No Diego think Krautrock rocks and is a force to be reckoned with. Oy vey!

This week Battlehooch stopped by our show and played a slick set. We'll have another post where you can download their live performance (but it is included in this mp3 file as well) as well as the setlist, hopefully. We tried playing music that is loosly similar to Battlehooch's music. I dunno, you be the judge of that! It was hard nailing these guys down to a set genre!
