Julian Cope's Krautrocksampler
Krautrocksampler Krautrocksampler German edition

Julian Cope (arch-Drude, ex-The Teardrop Explodes!) has done much to raise the profile of Amon Düül II, and Krautrock in general, with this brilliant book. In fact, it's been so successful it's gone to a third edition!

As the title suggests, this is a brief history of the radical West German music scene in the late sixties-early seventies, and (as well as Amon Düül I/II) covers bands such as Popul Vuh, Can, Tangerine Dream, Neu!, and the Cosmic Jokers. Cope also lists his fifty essential Krautrock albums.

A German edition now exists, too!
