Plamp, a Swiss band only named after the first names of the musicians involved, came from the city of Chur and were around since the mid-70's as a quintet, Plamp used the nearby Kraut Rock qualities in a lighter version to produce their own personal sound, obviously influenced by Folk, Jazz and Psychedelic Rock, and it's really amazing why the band remained so obscure, they were propably at the wrong place at the wrong time.The result of their efforts was a rich album with long instrumental passages and reduced, mediocre vocals in English, containing a wide range of inspirations, as proposed by the expanded instrumentation, including keyboards, sax and flute.They offered what most Kraut Rock acts were doing previously yet in a calmer edition, the arrangements sound a bit more delicate and elaborate as a whole, but you can find all the traditional elements of the movement, some serious groovy parts, some cosmic/psychedelic breaks with a folky aura and of course some nice little jams with a jazzy background.Close to Austrians ISAIAH, their music goes from lyrical, rhythmic parts with organ showering to flute-based psychedelia and from jazzy interventions, featuring great sax and piano, to standard Kraut Rock abnormalities with tireless solos on various instruments.''Behind'' is a nice example of their undefinable eclectisicm, archaic flute lines meet with theatrical vocals, cello strings and organ in a very jazzy enviroment.
