Xhol Caravan-Motherfuckers GMBH & Co. KG,(1972 experimental Krautrock]
One year later, the band changed their name to just Xhol to avoid confusion with the more famous British band. Their followup, Motherfuckers GMBH & Co. KG, shows the band's total disregard for anything commonly accepted. Not released until 1972 (by the legendary underground Ohr label), though recorded two years before, Xhol had clearly moved away from their fusion roots to a more avant-garde electronic approach. The highlight has to be the haunting 9½ minute "Orgel Solo", which could've just as easily been on Tangerine Dream's groundbreaking Electronic Meditation album. In fact, much of this album has the feel of the Kraut underground, that of mixing avant electronic structures with rock sounds and energy. The primary instruments are flute and organ with plenty of hand percussion. Very psychedelic. The exception is the 13 minute insane version of "Love Potion 25", not exactly what one would call a cover tune of the old classic! Available on CD (pressed by the French label Spalax). The LP only exists as an original (Ohr) and is quite expensive.

Re: Xhol. They actually started out as Soul Caravan releasing Get In High in 1967. After modifying their name to Xhol Caravan they released Electrip in 1969. This was posted on chocoreve.blogspot awhile ago, i don't know if it's still available there, but it's worth tracking down. After losing two members they became Xhol and released Hau-Ruk in 1970. They disbanded after this release leaving behind the quaintly titled Motherfuckers GMBH & Co KG in 1972 (hence the '2 years old' inked on the cover). All members then disappeared from the scene (as far a i know).

Many thanks for the Xhol album. Never had the chance to hear this one. I really like it, and another one off my krautrock wantlist now that 8 Days In April has come to a halt. I think I'll get the Spalax reissue pretty damn soon for this one.
