No one has an exact definition, but everyone knows what is meant when we talk about Krautrock. "Krautrock is not a musical genre, but a term for a phase: 1969 to 1974," explains Dirk Jan Müller of the band Electric Orange. "Krautrock can be anything. "He was most exciting when he wasn't Anglo-American." Exactly this independence is embodied by bands like Faust, CAN, Amon Düül II, Popol Vuh, Guru Guru or Kraan, who showed a creative unconcern unknown to local conditions. Tom Redecker of The Perc Meets The Hidden Gentleman describes Krautrock as "Germany's only contribution to the worldwide phenomenon of rock music". Of course, Krautrock is wide-ranging: electronics from Kraftwerk or Tangerine Dream; art rock from Eloy, Jane or Grobschnitt; anarchistic folk from Witthüser & Westrupp.
Artlantica is a fitting name for the new band project of singer John West and guitarist Roger Staffelbach. Before that they had already gained a good reputation together with Artension and Angel Of Eden.
