I'm pretty new to the genre but I have been listening to Amon Duul II's 'Yeti' album repeatedly since I got it a month ago. It's definitely a pretty permanent staple in my collection now.
You guys know any others I might dig similar to them? Amon Duul (without the II) I did not like, I'm not a fan of electronica influence.

Krautrock on MB
Two attitudes seem to recur when people mention Krautrock on MB:-
(i) old-timers who`ve seen it all five years ago groan at the prospect of yet another Krautrock thread
(ii) newcomers can`t find threads about Can or other Krautrock bands and they restart old discussions all over again.
Krautrock is also a genre that people can`t quite decide on, and threads turn up in the avant-garde / metal and prog sections of MB, though the majority of thread starters have chosen this Prog Rock sub-forum for their threads. Anyway, I thought an index might clarify things for Krautrock fans - all they have to do now is find this post, haha.
http://www.musicbanter.com/avant-gar...utrock-11.html - extensive thread started in 2008
http://www.musicbanter.com/rock-meta...rock-week.html -this worthy thread very quickly became Krautrock For Advanced Students and focuses on the obscure fringes of Krautrock.
http://www.musicbanter.com/avant-gar...-top-10-a.html - good if you want lists of bands; short on analysis
http://www.musicbanter.com/prog-psyc...krautrock.html - a short thread exploring modern bands that aren`t German. Is that still Krautrock?
Did you ever hear of having more than you wanted? So that you couldn’t want anything else and then started looking for something else to want? It seems like we’re always searching for something to satisfy us, and never finding it. - Susan Eloise Hinton, 1967
