Hölderlin :: Hölderlins Traum

Hölderlin remains a footnote in the greater Kosmische tome. Like many of the Kraut canon’s lesser-knowns, Hölderlin’s legacy and overall impact would be marked by sporadic line-up changes, discrepancies in sound and direction, and even lawsuits. Their reputation is further shrouded in the fact that the group, along with big-timers Klaus Schulze and Manual Gottsching, were key parties to the eventual falling out and demise of Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser and his Pilz and Cosmic Couriers label. Sensationalism be damned, prior to the drama and tumult that would follow, Hölderlin managed to lock- in on their first LP for the legendary and ill-fated Pilz.
