In their highly active time between 1967 and 1974 Agitation Free released just two albums. Then came the dissolution of the Berlin Kraut cult icons - almost exactly 40 years ago. In 1999 they got together again for a (rather disappointing) album. And finally, in February 2007, they spontaneously collaborated on three concerts at the Tokyo club "Shibuya O'West", from whose spectacular recordings the album "Shibuya Nights" was created in 2012. The reactions to the gigs as well as to the record were so euphoric that since then the five person has at least sporadically made further appearances, and since the beginning of last year work has also been done on a new studio work. "Shibuya Nights" was until then only available as an import in England and the rest of Europe. Now this grandiose live document will be published again "regularly" by the MIG label. In addition, a 45-minute DVD has been released, which presents six pieces from 2013: three from the performance at the Berlin "Kesselhaus" and three from the "Burg-Herzberg-Festival". Big, and by no means just for Potheads!
