18 KARAT GOLD: KURZLEBIGE KRAUTROCK-SUPERGROUP
- May 02, 2021
The 18-year-old German-American guitarist Klaus Ebert, Jörg Evers (ex- Embryo), Lothar Meid (ex-Doldinger, -Motherhood, -Passport, -Amon Düül II) and the Englishman Keith Forsey (ex-Niagara, -Motherhood, -Amon Düül II) founded the group 18 Karat Gold in 1973. The band wanted to stand out from the experimental Krautrock formations and make more char orientated music. The result was the LP ALL-BUMM, which received partly effusive reviews, but did not sell well. In 1974, 18 Karat Gold went on a Bravo Yugoslavia tour as Peter Maffay's backing band and then disbanded.
