Julian Cope's Krautrocksampler -1996 & Japrocksampler -2007

Postby Pierre » Thu Aug 14, 2014 1:23 pm

Pauldrach's summary of German lists reminded me of those books by Julian Cope. I'm not sure if they are eligible (the single critic criterion, genre-only although you can debate whether Krautrock and Japrock are cohesive standalone genres, and Cope is a musician before a critic) but I'm posting it anyway. Surely the guy knows his stuff. The Krautrock list seems to be unranked, but the Japrock one is. Some cheating and strange bootleg choices in the Japrock list as well. Lists found here:

Cope's Krautrocksampler is an underground classic and introduced me to a lot of weird, incredible music. I've never heard of his Japrocksampler and look forward to exploring it. Thanks for sharing, Pierre! I hope these lists are included on AM.

You're welcome, McJagger. Interesting lists for sure, Julian Cope seems to like weird stuff. Interestingly, I'm currently listening to Zappa and Beefheart, so I seem to revel in the bizarre side of the music moon. I'm not accustomed to those sounds, and it's quite a fascinating trip.

Seems not to be included on AM these 2 lists.
The one with japrock is part of le mot et le reste collection.
The other with kraut not (1995 not 1996), but i will include it in this section.

About their eligibility, i think they have to be included.
On AM, there's others lists with single genre and critic.
Example: Fred Kaplan (USA) - Top 100 Jazz Albums of the Twentieth Century
