From mozzmozz
How come I haven't heard of this album until now ... 52 years after its release?
It's Punk, before Punk existed. It's Garage Rock ... before Garage Rock existed. It's Krautrock ... before Krautrock existed.
And a tinge of psychedelia .. an early adopter.
10th best album of 1966. Should be higher I think.

Wasn't feeling this at first, but its eclectic variety grew on me

Very weird cultural artifact. The closest the 60s came to punk was a created by an eccentric German nudging a group of American GIs who really just wanted to be the Beatles.

This is a great example of a band saying "screw it" and doing whatever they want. It feels like the band was just like "Hey, no one's gonna hear this album anyways, let's go nuts." It's crazy and goofy and just pure awesome

Another great album that I have heard about because the Fall covered one of their songs.

The 4 bonus tracks are actually my favourite parts of this ironically. 'I Hate You' & 'That's My Girl' are my favourites.

Sorry to correct Mr. Music - they weren't German, they were American G.Is stationed in Germany. Ironically their proto-punk not only pre-dates the Stooges and VU, but they also kick-started the hypnotic, metronomic drumbeat found in the Krautrock of the early-mid 70s, got covered by the Fall and were as scary as shit live (check out the YouTube videos). The benchmark by which all modern bands should be set, if you ask me. The album's wonderful.
