Hypnotic yeah. Been listening to some Can recently which might have had an influence. I'm sure it will turn into something eventually. It's not hard to play but I love stuff like that, over doing it can really spoil the feeling sometimes.

A lot of the Krautrock bands used a rhythmic basis they called 'motorik' - a very stready, simple beat that the rest could build-up and improvise over. the band Neu! is a good example.

More recently there is an American outfit called 'Maserati' who are heavily influenced by Krautrock and make a sort of high-intensity Post-Rock. Really worth checking out.

Jaki Liebezeit (Can) was probably the earliest pioneer of "motorik," along with Klaus Dinger of Neu! Dinger actually named it the "Apache beat," I assume, after the Indian drums in all of those old cowboy movies: ONE-two-three-four, ONE-two-three-four, etc. Smoke signals were optional I assume. :lol:
