The Petards - self-titled (Bear Family)

(4 out of 5 stars)
"More or less a 20 song collection of some of the German band's most inspiring tunes,penned between 1967-71.Although I've seen a couple of listings/mentions of this disc now and again,where they're described as pre-dated krautrock,I think their music is more in the psychedelic pop direction.The stand outs include "Shoot Me Up To The Moon","Pretty Liza","On The Road With My Bag"(a possible anthem?),the stellar "The Dream",the rocking "Baby Man" and "Blue Fire Light" which sort of reminds me of the Guess Who.Some of these cuts sound a bit similar to several little-known bands that you'd find on Rhino's 'Nuggets II' 4-CD box set,like Q'65,The La De Da's,The Craig,The Syn and Open Mind.Line-up:Horst Ebert-vocals,Klaus Ebert-guitar,Roger Waldmann-bass and Arno Dittrich-drums.Heard that their drummer had very recently organized a Petards reunion of some sort."
