Datashock from Saarlouis, a collective of multi-instrumentalists. Founded in 2003, they’ve been losing themselves in the wardrobes of their subconcious ever since and have never been frightened to play around with whatever they can find in there, trying out colourful sound-costumes and sending out psychedelic-experimental ‘Gruselkraut’ from the depths of this vast piece of furniture.

„Like a free-folk-informed update on Amon Düül“ said UK-based magazine The Wire about Datashock’s live performance at the Avantgarde Festival last year, and Krautrock-hip-priest Julian Cope enthused about their recently released double album Pyramiden von Gießen: „It’s a splendidly righteous motherfucker!“

The boys and girls from Saarland do not cling to hackneyed versions of Krautrock, they follow the paths of early Pink Floyd, Amon Düül or Harmonia to recent projects such as Sunburned Hand Of The Man, but only to fill them with new meanings – Datashock’s psychedelic improvisations are amibitious re-appropriations and not moth-eaten imitations.
