Bad News Reunion - Live im Logo - 1978 - Oktave During the first half of the 70's, Germany produced many great bands. Some of these groups created some wonderful progressive rock, and this genre is generally known as "Krautrock". Some of the great Krautrock bands include Tangerine Dream, Faust, Amon Duul, Kraftwerk, Guru Guru, and of course, the brilliant Can. However, only a relatively few of these bands made the big time, and other good bands remained only locally known, and they weren't all of the prog. rock genre.
