Crack in the Cosmic Egg: Os Mundi have been quoted as Berlin's first "rock big band" with a line-up that could swell to a dozen. Little-known really, Os Mundi were indeed an important part of the Berlin Krautrock underground with a history going back to the early-1960's.
The roots of Os Mundi can be traced back to a beat group called the Safebreakers, who existed from 1962-1966, line-up: Christoph Busse (drums), Andreas Villain (bass), Lukas Dammer (guitar), Michael Wöhrle (keyboards), with Holger Sieversen and Udo Arndt joining from the band Butterblume. Safebreakers largely played Top 40 Hits, and the only document of any original music by them is in a film called "Mädchen Mädchen" directed by Roger Fritz. Circa 1967 Christoph Busse and Udo Arndt went on to form Orange Surprise, also featuring: David Kalkreuth (organ), Hartmut Hacki Seidel (bass) and Steve Jolliffe (flute, saxophone). Orange Surprise played original music and became involved in the arts scene. The band's initials OS gave rise to the name Os Mundi adopted in 1969 (or 1970, according to their own web pages). In their formative years Os Mundi also became friends of Agitation, sharing a rehearsal room at Paul-Linke-Ufer in Berlin-Kreuzberg. In these early days jam sessions took place with Manuel Göttsching (later of Ash Ra Tempel), Buddy Mandler, Ludolf Kuchenbuch (both from the original Os Mundi) and Michael Günther (from Agitation), among others. Session tapes are said to exist. This association meant Os Mundi's music changed considerably.
