But they work better when seen in a narrative setting, as fascinating keyhole glimpses into Krautrock's unruly adolescence. But it's the memories of the participants that make the film such an invaluable document. Some of them might be unfairly regarded today as minor sidekicks: Eberhard Kranemann for example, who figured in the embryonic, overlapping biographies of both Kraftwerk and Neu!
But as an articulate firsthand witness to changing times he shares some of the film's best anecdotes, and his impersonation of John Coltrane blink and you'll miss it is priceless. The filmmakers remain invisible throughout, never once inserting themselves into their interviews, instead letting the musicians the "sound-carriers", in Damo Suzuki's memorable phrase tell their stories without interference.
Electric Orange is briefly featured, and Stephan Plank son of the legendary Conny, and the spitting image of his dad is here too. The implications are never overtly stated, but should be obvious: Krautrock was a product and a portrait of its time, but fifty years later has yet to show its age. But fear not: their examination of Krautrock needed a wider net, and this is only the first chapter of a proposed three-part saga, with future installments continuing the journey of remembrance through Munich, Wiesbaden, Berlin and beyond.
Fans of the many featured bands will eat it up, of course. But even newcomers lacking a palate for Krautrock's enduring power and deep musical legacy should appreciate the aim behind the project: to preserve, before it's too late, the personal testimony of influential artists who never received the historical recognition they deserved.
Although this issue will support many interpretations, some facts are quite obvious. Less controversal, for example the 'Essener Songtage' in can be seen as an important point of origin. And let me emphasize the special historical dimension in Germany, coming together with a rebellious youth, for example manifested by the student revolts and protests against the US agression during Vietnam War. Open-mindedness was hip, nearly everything called into question.
This benefitted a general atmosphere of departure, having effect on many sectors of the society, especially all sorts of art. One may sum it up with the approach 'unlimited experimentalism', which even infected Schlager music producer and major labels.
While most of the musicians outside of Germany still were feeling comfortable with a more standard blues, psychedelic and jazz attempt, German artists started to break all barriers very early. And some of them evolved to real pioneers hereby. This initially was concentrated on some major cities, those who regularly were equipped with diverse academies respectively universities and a vivid avantgarde scene. The presented bands, their vita, each of them is rather diverse.
Protagonists Eberhard Kranemann and Harald Grosskopf recently have founded a new fruitful entity Krautwerk. US duo Wume are in place for those artists from outside of Germany who are adopting diverse stylistical characteristics.
And the Electric Orange staff is drawing references too, though nevertheless one of those neo kraut bands which are representing, okay, even are a push for a little renaissance in Germany currently. Most of the sequences are filmed by Schmidt and Zegarra Holder themselves, often enough linked with music excerpts taken from live sessions or studio recorded songs, just referring to well-known key terms like Autobahn, Hallogallo, Vitamin C, you bet!
But they are also incorporating archive material plus simple sightseeing impressions.

The Zeitgeist Media team have successfully started their mission, I would say. This documentation is a recommended add-on to your collection, a must have for Krautrock fans so much the more.
The series started with the "Romantic Warriors: A Progressive Music Saga" but soon became more focused on the individual sub-genres. The focus of these films is to highlight the bands that were innovative in the progressive rock scene and for the sake of not including every band that existed, the film opted to leave out bands that were more derivative of English prog and copycats of others. PART I captures many of the musicians who are still alive from Krautrock's early years and allows them to tell their stories while capturing some archival footage.
While there is never enough footage to satisfy the hardcore fans in these kinds of documentaries as i could personally watch entire documentaries for each of the bands involved, this is a very interesting journey into the greater depths of Germany's unique contribution to the progressive rock universe and no matter how much you thought you knew already about this vibrant movement that began in the 70s, ROMANTIC WARRIORS is guaranteed to reveal some of the long lost secrets that have been tucked away behind the scenes for many decades.
