Julian Cope is very readable and funny. Log in Create an account.

That song, The Krautrocisampler Skinhead is now one of their best, but I couldn’t see it at the time. Paperbackpages. I’ll be honest about it. Nov 25, Tara marked it as to-read Shelves: Want to Read saving….

The last part of the book is dedicated to Cope’s highly selective and personal Top 50 Krautrock records, for which he provides reviews.

Originally coming to prominence in as the singer and songwriter in Liverpool post-punk band The Teardrop Explodes, he has followed a solo career since and initiated musical side projects such as Queen Elizabeth, Brain Donor and Black Sheep.

In me ha risvegliato il desiderio di riascoltare certi vecchi dischi in vinile, e riscoprire immutata la magia della musica incisa in quei solchi. While it was every bit as informative and entertaining as my most recent music-history read, Simon Reynolds’ “Rip It Up And Start Again,” Cope’s book is far shorter–only about pages total–and read less like a scholarly work and more like a nonstop thrillride.


They have very negative memories of that whole period and feel ripped off by the whole thing.

Feb 04, Guy rated it it was amazing. Mosh For me, they could have beaten baked bean cans together and it would have been justified.

There’s some, but each band is only limited to a chapter each and a few pages at that.

And Dorian loves Manuel so much that seeing them together was really touching. And neither could anyone else. Cope is almost always justified in his effusive praise. Krautrocksampler gives a subjective and very animated account of the phenomenon of krautrock from the perspective of the author, who states: To see what krautrocksamplee friends thought of this book, please sign up. At the time of this writing, both of these books are scarily high priced in the collector market fetching obscene numbers.

If you’re reading this review, you’ve likely already made up your mind to read this staple text. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It was a fabulous challenge and showed how, very occasionally, visionaries in record companies have been seen to get it absolutely right.

It’s incredibly rare and insanely expensive.

It was one of the first books to break through and appear on record store shelves so that a kid from anywhere USA could learn about the great German musical experimenters in their prime period of creativity of the late ’60s and early ’70s, when Krautrock really was getting defined as a genre unto itself. We need these kinds of independent publications that cover subjects that no established publisher would touch with a long stick.

It just took time to get it. Red Bull Music Academy. What a fucking racket! Cope is also a recognised authority on Neolithic culture, an outspoken political and cultural activist, and a fierce critic of contemporary Western society with a noted and public interest in occultism, paganism and Goddess worship.


The packaging was weak. While Julian gives you his favorites, and he’s pretty dead on correct with the classics – I would suggest also obtaining the Freeman Brother’s Crack in the Cosmic Egg so that you will be able to futher explore the bands and releases that Cope does not mention, dislikes or ignores – and there are many many wonderful bands and albums beyond Krautrocksampler.

When I wrote Krautrocksamplerno straight press would give such bands more than a jokey note in the ‘Where are they now’ columns. Va detto che in questo modo scoprii un sacco di buona musica, di artisti e dischi fondamentali, ma le mie orecchie adolescenti erano affa Commento del marzo It wasand musicians usually soloed and looked to the audience for krautroocksampler, and great ugly guys danced around in cheese-cloth singing about fucking nothing at all.

The Krautrock book was a whole year ahead of all the others and started a real big revival. It was all over in half-a-minute and all I could remember was some title about Humphrey Bogart. He told this to the music journalist, Uwe Nettlebeck, who was extremely impressed and wanted to lead just such a project.
