Biography

This Berlin based outfit regularly gets lumped into the Krautrock pile, though the comparison isn’t particularly accurate or fair since their sound is has a distinctive UK blues-rock feel (along with English lyrics)…

Curly Curve’s convoluted roots trace back to 1968 when Berlin-based singer Heiner Pudelko and bassist Kurt Herkenberg decided to jump on the thriving English blues-rock scene. Adding guitarist Alex Conti to the line up, the initial trio managed some rehearsals but collapsed before getting very far. A couple of months later the trio decided to revive the band with the addition of drummer Hans Wallbaum. Like the first line-up, Curly Curve mark II did little and fell apart within a couple of months. With Conti and Pudelko calling it quits round three featured Herkenberg, new keyboard player Chris Axel Klöber, lead guitarist Sandy Pikker, and Wallbaum. The new line-up found the band shifting towards a jazz-rock sound, though subsequent disagreements over musical direction saw this line-up collapse. Starting in 1972 round four Curly Curve saw Conti and Pudelko step back into the picture, though they left before the band recorded anything. That left the band populated by singer/guitarist Hanno Bruhn, Herkenberg, Klober, guitarist Paul Fuhrmann (quickly replaced by Martin Knaden), and Wallbaum.

    I was expecting krautrock, but what I got was blues-oozing hard rock with a hint of krautrock. And I am not disappointed! Very nice music.

    Despite the label "krautrock" they had the emphasis on playing a sophisticated blues rock. Very nice album...
