A Bavarian political folk-rock and traditional folk-theatre band, Sparifankal had a very unusual and lyrical style. They were the odd band out on the April/Schneeball roster. The early recordings featured as bonus material on the CD of BAYERN-ROCK are of most interest, in that these reveal their underground psychedelic roots, proving their status as part of Krautrock history.
