Murky psychedelia from the original Pink Floyd line up, and from their 1967 debut album ‘The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn’. This set the tone for so much of the Krautrock that came a few years later, and traces of this track can be heard in music by bands like Faust, Amon Düül II, Tangerine Dream, Ashra Tempel et al; and it’s influence can be found on Avant-Rock from places other than Germany up until this day. It’s easy to forget about the impact that their early material had with all of the Prog and Neo Prog that followed, but a glance back to their very early days should rectify that.
