68s according to notes

A multimedia look back at an eventful time 50 years ago

 

Walter Westrupp, part of the legendary German folk- and krautrockduo Witthüser & Westrupp, takes you on a very personal, humorous and self-deprecating journey back in time to the late 60s and early 70s. With texts, stories, photos, videos and music clips, he recalls • hippies • layabouts • communards • krautrock • the international Essen song days IEST 68 • podium-club Essen • Love & peace-festival Fehmarn 70 • trips, dreams, songs of the dead, their Jesus-mushroom- opera • Rolf Ulrich Kaiser & his entourage • the invention of the sensational tea bag lifting machine TEHOMA • the concert for electric coffee grinder with rock band and symphony orchestra and much more.

He says about this time:
... we were researchers, astronauts, pirates, globetrotters in an unexplored, almost virgin environment ...
... at that time we realized ourselves through actions, through music, and we did our things ...
... we weren't missionaries - not even revolutionaries - we only did what we enjoyed ourselves ...
... we lived as a small group in a parallel world ...
... we were young people who moved away from the dusty ideas of parents, society, politics - who looked for our own way off the beaten track

... on the way to ourselves
