COMITATUS is a watershed of new shiney sparkly gems by HER GART with BARDACID of Walking Cow in Florence, Italy and KRAUTIOPHARM
of M.E.K.K.A., Augsburg, Germany, now in record mode with Ultimate Producer... KRAMER ...!
KRAUTIOPHARM: Michael Mayr making music in the early 80s in several bands from Avantgarde New Wave (Wahnvorstellung) via Electronic
NDW (Schatten unter Eis) to Psychedelic 60s-Punk (The Trivial Heroes). In his "real life" he is a screenwriter but music is
still his favourite waste of time. After almost 20 years of musical silence he thought it was about time to start a new project.
It is called "krautiopharm" and aims to build a bridge from German 70s Krautrock to modern electric chill-out/dance music
(you'll find the link in my Top 8 friends list) ... but as he still likes to slip into his "oulde dancin' boots" to do the
John Travolta every now and then he has recently begun working on a new project ... The Discodelic Orchestra ... It's great
music - Michaels's myspace pages are at: Krautiopharm
and Discodelic Orchestra
