Six Degrees of Sauerkraut -- Part XVI: Danz Die Sternzeit

As I mentioned earlier, Adelbert Von Deyen also travelled the sternzeit before joining us in the glimmerlight. 

Some claim that Adelbert actually wanted to be Klaus Schulze, but he messed up the programming. They've got it all wrong! They were never there with us, basking in the blue depths of the inner-hinterhüffer. Just click on the title of this post to hear what I'm talking about. Adelbert wrote this track, "Mars," as an homage to the planet he visited in late-79. I'm afraid that Klaus could probably never come up with such a funky synth masterpiece. Immer wieder!

Indeed, Adelbert had spent much of '79 touring the planets of the galaxy, and the trip formed the basis of his masterpiece LP -- Planetary. An album that takes me right back to the glimmerlights of my youth.

Adelbert would soon team up with Dieter Schütz to form one of the most underrated krautrock duos of all time. Tune in tomorrow for that tale...
