BBC Four recently aired a documentary on German experimental music entitled, "Krautrock: The Rebirth of Germany".
It's a great look at the German culture of the post-War period and the artists (Can, Neu!, Kraftwerk, et. al) who sprang up from that era to produce the uniquely European rock and electronic music of the 1960s and '70s. Check it out here in the embedded (or text link) YouTube playlist.
For more info on the musicians associated with the "Krautrock" genre, please see the links section at Krautrock.com, as well as Julian Cope's, Krautrocksampler, and the items in our related posts section below.
