However the unusual use of electric instruments and electronic manipulations made Xhol absolutely unique. After "Electrip", the band carried on their musical adventure with two great and totally free jazz rock albums. Dominated by endless, electric and cool improvisations "Hau Ruk" is a must for fusion and jazz lovers. Their last studio album "Motherfuckers GmbH" recorded in 1972 is a monument.
All the compositions have their own feelings, sometimes delivering captivating and powerful blues, kraut, and jazz elements. However this album put the stress on a second fascinating side of Xhol's musical universe: experimental organ works and psych/folk interludes. This last album is nearer to Krautrock mesmerizing musical themes, more twisted, spacey and devoted to avant-garde. Xhol’s influence on a host of German prog bands and on the adepts of free rock music in general is undeniable. Official site: xholcaravan.oyla2.de Read more on Last.fm.
