Follakzoid II - or Neu! That's What I Call Chilean Krautrock - came to me suddenly and unexpectedly as if a snake had whispered its secrets in my ear.

There are five songs, each with one note and a hundred ideas. The songs last for at least 9 years - from Can's first lp to Talking Heads 77 - and end when their tribal drums, hypnotic tunes and thumping rhythms come to a natural end.

There's something of Psycho Killer to Rio; everything else comes from Follakzoid's own dark magic. Here, listen:


  1. Mrs DNC is not a magical snake.

  2. Correct. She is a poisonous monkey. Now get off my blog or I'll lock you in the cellar for another calendar year.
