Horned Prog: Set 4: Proven in the Groovin’

by nielskunze on March 12, 2019

At this point I need to mention the Germans. Germany during the seventies was a hotbed of progressive music. And it seems as though every other band had a sax player– if not a full-blown horn section (pun intended).

Although “krautrock” is a narrowly-defined sub-genre of prog, there’s no denying that those krauts knew how to rock! (For the PC crowd: it’s okay, I’m German. I can say “kraut”.)
