ABOUT THE FILM – ROMANTIC WARRIORS IV – KRAUTROCK (Part 2)
Fifty years ago, in the late 1960s and early 1970s, creativity exploded in the German music scene. This globally audible supernova was called “Krautrock”. This movement—not just a branch, but a whole family of psychedelic, ethnic, electronic, folk & rock styles fashioned without the radio in mind— created new musical elements that had not existed before and from which the musicians were able to create new worlds of sound. Its pioneering bands created eminently logical magic: They took the fierce, undomesticated essence of the old gods of rock and roll, and infused it with a truly progressive and revolutionary spirit
In order to organize the large amount of material that we filmed over the past three years, we have divided Romantic Warriors IV into three parts. Part 1 focuses on the bands from the Cologne- Düsseldorf region. Part 2 focuses on bands from Southern Germany. Part 3 will mainly focus on bands from Hamburg and Berlin, and one major band from Munich. All these documentaries are feature length, standalone films.
Krautrock Part 2 focuses on bands from Munich, Wiesbaden, Ulm, and Heidelberg. The film highlights the following bands:
GURU GURU • AMON DÜÜL II • XHOL CARAVAN • KRAAN • WITTHÜSER & WESTRUPP • POPOL VUH
Among the musicians of the Krautrock Scene (that were active in the 70s), the following have been interviewed for Part 2 of this film:
SKIP VAN WYCK III • MANI NEUMEIER • RENATE KNAUP • CHRIS KARRER • DANIEL FICHELSCHER • HELMUT HATTLER • JAN FRIDE • WALTER WESTRUPP
In addition, we’ll hear the opinions of Krautrock specialists and authors Alan Freeman and Steve Freeman, and experienced musicians such as Dirk Jan Müller, Dirk Bittner & Georg Monheim of Electric Orange.
