Been a MINUTE since I posted up a sample. Sorry for the delay – as you’ve seen from my recent posts been quite busy with my own music lol. I decided to kick this one off with a hard drum break from German group Amon Duul II.
The original lineup (known as Amon Duul 1) was formed at a German political art commune. There were several members of the group, so they weeded out a few and came up with Amon Duul II. Amon was a combination of Prog Rock, Experimental Rock, and Krautrock. Throughout their 12 year musical career, they began shifting from their experimental roots to a more organized Prog sound.
“I Can’t Wait” is from their 1975 release Hijack released on Atlantic. Surprisingly, the vocals are in English not German. Regardless, the intro to the track contains a monster drum break. The snare drums have a cool flange effect on them, but the rest drums are touch. Check it out.
