More great stuff from John N!

(scott) While I am working hard on the enormous Electric Orange post that John N has sent me the material
for, I wanted to sneak in ANOTHER fabulous submission of his, a totally amazing 2012 Krautrock comp, which actually does include some Electric Orange (consider it a preview), but also covers of great shit such as Amon Duul II, Can, Kraftwerk.....need I go on? You want this, and this one is one of those that a copy/paste serves us much better than anything I could write up.

2012 is the 40th anniversary of the launch of the Brain label, so what better time to release a double album of classic seventies kraut rock, motorik rhythms, acid jams and kosmische sounds, including covers of classic tracks by Can, Neu!, Amon Duul and Kraftwerk?
... over 90 minutes of great music for you, with all-exclusiveTRACKS by Fruits de Mer artists old and new - including The Bevis Frond, Electric Moon, Vibravoid, Language of Light, Dead Sea Apes and Frobisher Neck ...AND we even have a mad spoken-word intro to the album from Grobschnitt's legendary drummer Eroc!!!
