Guru Guru

"Guru Guru is one of the most notable German Krautrock bands, existing from the late 1960s to the present. The band has had many incarnations over nearly 4 decades. Drummer Mani Neumeier has remained as the only original member. Mani and bassist Uli Trepte came from playing free jazz in the mid 1960’s with pianist Irene Schweizer and the appear on an obscure out of print album under her name shortly before forming Guru Guru in the late 1960’s. They were joined by ex-Agitation Free guitarist Ax Geinrich as a “power trio” that was clearly influenced by Hendrix, Zappa and LSD and perhaps Karlheinz Stockhausen... Guru Guru were looser, more improvisational and noisy than most of the Krautrock bands of that time..." -
