'The Crack In The Cosmic Egg' is a definitive Krautrock Encyclopedia, a guide to all the artists of the original Krautrock scene, written by Steven and Alan Freeman.
The book has a wider scope (1968/69 up to 1985) and also incorporates worthwhile releases in the late 70s early 80s experimental weird new wave/industrial genre.
The book led to an in-depth survey, with full discographies, pictures, extra bonus pages (compilations, archives, galleries, concerts, film) etc.
This is a challenge for anybody in Krautrock interested in this material to write an encyclopedia about this era.
We would like to present to you 35 artists from the book.
