Amon Duul II: Wolf City

Wayne Robins, Creem, June 1973

EVER READ German rock mags like Muziek Express or Dutch ones like Popfoto? If you do, you'll notice that besides the pictures of Alice Cooper, David Cassidy, whips and tits and chains and ass, there's pictures of bands like Amon Duul II. Sound interesting? Sure it does, especially if you like music that expresses all the joy and good feelings of the Munich Olympics and combines it with a rhythmic undercurrent that sounds like nothing so much as the hissing of gas chambers. But we're getting ahead of ourselves.
