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!
