The late 1960's in West Germany was a period of profound breakthroughs, upheavals and reversals. communes were spreading, protests organised throughout the entire country, the desire to begin everything anew permeating the young. Out of this climate, a music scene exploded that would forever change the face of western rock; at times anarchic, at others mystical, and utopian, it pushed rock beyond any known limits.
Such legendary bands as Can, Faust, Neu!, Cluster, Harmonia, Kraftwerk and Ash Ra Tempel were at the height of their creative powers. From the relentless drum beating of Amon Düül I, to the eastern tinged mysticism of Popol Vuh and the sonic assaults of Conrad Schnitzler, Krautrock: Cosmic Rock And Its Legacy traces the history of this complex and eschewing definition phenomenon.
Illustrated with concert photos, posters, record cover art and other rare and previously unseen visual material, this book is the ultimate tour-de-force of a movement whose influence and impact is still being felt today.
We are proud to announce the arrival of Actual Pain spring collection entitled, "OLD GOD". This season they focused are minds on the original gods of days past and we think you'll be pleased with the results. Check it out here!

Atakke, this band is definitely one of the best things I've listened in 2009. They have released two classic 7" EPs on Mountain of Madness Label, "Avalanche" EP and "March to the Gallows" EP. They're totally the state of crust in 2009.
Check their tunes here!
