Teutonic titans in a rare 1971 clip performing on the Beat Club. The song "Eye-Shaking King" (48MB wmv file) comes from one of the group's most godlike records Yeti, and while female member Renate seems to be AWOL here, this is still an awesome performance. After graduating from the late 1960's Amon Duul I incarnation, the group evolved from an initial commune that performed extremely non-structured tribal bashing to a highly organized progressive rock ensemble that captured some of the greatest elements of free rock spirit that the era had to offer. Yeti, and their preceding record Phallus Dei (their first as Amon Duul II) are considered by many to be their peak moments, full of tranced out, multi-culti-influenced jams head to head with throttling and very heavy rock. Follow up 70's albums like Tanz Der Lemming, Carnival In Babylon, and Wolf City are also full of great moments. Dig the clip, it's actually the only time I've seen this one in a non-shortened mode.
