Alles Gute zum Geburtstag...

Belated birthday congratulations to Manuel Gottsching - founder member, along with Klaus Schulze and Hartmut Enke, of seminal 70's KrautSpacerock band, Ash Ra Tempel. All were former members of Eruption; along with Conrad Schnitzler - of Tangerine Dream/Kluster fame. Their music was a unique hybrid of, at first, psychedelia and, especially later, progressive/art rock. Their music does, however, transcend any attempts at pigeonholing - it is defined purely by its ability to inspire and uplift. Their earliest incarnation lasted only a few short years - Gottsching continued - using, among other names, the abbreviated 'Ashra,' and still performs and records today.

Deep distance
