Maphia - "Hans im Glück" {Germany} [1978] (krautrock)

We are in a good syncronization with Serhiy to select albums from same countries :) The album i am posting now is also new to me. Not more than a week, i met with one of faithful pnf visitor friend (strmshadow), and i was amazed with his vinyl rips, collections. For a long time i wanted to hear a good quite uncommon krautrock, and my medicine came. Maphia; Maphia is an obscure krautrock band from seventies, especially i like somesongs on it. For the friends who would like to listen some cute krautrock album, may try this one. I looked for some information for the band at net, but couldnt successful. So any information welcome.

Mary Smith..

My thanks goes to strmshdw :)

Your post related to Burma is really good. I know a Burmese who now lives and works in Singapore (for 2 years I know him). And he had told me 2 years ago about the situation there.
The Buddhist monks are prominent also in Tibet which if you know the story of Kundun (1997) is one of my favourite movies.
Free Tibet could also be a call for us on here.

For the erm 'slightly' more adventurous try this link =

Bear in mind that Mary Tamm (original Romana was replaced eventually by the lovely Lalla Ward. Both actresses are incredibly beautiful and talented.

This may not have a lot to do with the current theme of Burmese and Tibetan rights, but sometimes I think remnant Drama can relate to current True Life.

Love Above Gold.

a well known collector from Italy once touted this album as a unknown monster krautrock album. After paying some money to have it shipped from Germany I found that it was a complete turd ;)

Just listening to Maphia. Well, Krautrock? Average german rock music in the tradition of former GDR bands like Puhdys or Karat in connection with lyrics dealing with the every day trouble one can face. No money, no alcohol, and so on. If you have the chance listening to this record and your knowledge about german language is quite good,don`t take the lyrics to serious. All in all, another band from the 70ties you musn`t care about.
