"Bock haben" - "to be up for something" / "to have appetite"
I am up for Elektronik. People label this kind of electronic music as Berlin School.
Klaus Schulze in fact produced this 1980 album and also had an immense impact on Mr. Bock. Nevertheless Bock's doing his own thing. Epic electronics! The title track builds up slow then smashes wagneriesque into your ears with the help of Brad Howell (drummer of Supermax & Chilly). Herk Hobb (???) plays the drums on the 4 remaining tracks on the flipside. Great job.
I really believed I'd never find the original. But I did and it's yours now.
Indeed a very groovy (maybe even a little spiritual) LP on the small Trend label recorded in 1976. Very listenable all the way through. Heavenly if you're into flutes and synths. There used to be a reissue in the late nineties - I hope it's still available. If so: go out and buy it.
