Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
A collection of Munich musicians fronted by Christian "Shrat" Thiele (born 29/3/1946, in Unterpolling) the former Amon Düül II vocalist/percussionist. The band was originally known as Konsameti, and existed over a year before the debut LP, with a constantly changing line-up. In fact, with the two albums billed as Sameti, only Shrat was in common, and as such they amounted to two very different bands...
The original band produced a music with trippy Amon Düül II and bluesy Hawkwind stylings, and in fact the whole album sounds as though it was made in an acid haze. It is especially notable for the stunning tripped-out improvised LP side-long work "Anotherwaytoseeimprovisation". Shrat's vocals, only heard rarely in Amon Düül II, come across as most strange, adding a unique touch to a highly derivative, but most enjoyable, blend of Krautrock styles.
The later incarnation of the band saw an all-change in the ranks, and were more of a supergroup, with other Amon Düül II people and former Gila drummer, but apart from the promising "Intro" musically they offered a rather bland Anglo-American type mainstream rock and pop. Their album is of historical interest only.
