The various reissues complete the band's history.Most of them feature an unreleased track by the band, '' The princess and the predator'', propably the best piece recorded by Sindelfingen.
This very rare album was the only record made by Sindelfingen.The sound here is very rough and unexpected, showing a band with a jamming attitude, performing on scratching electric guitars and flute improvisations, connecting Psych Rock with Hard Rock, with only discreet use of keys, but an endless energy on stage, powered by the jazzy soloing, the KING CRIMSON-ian mood, the abstract jams and the punchy rhythmic parts.When Sindelfingen were oficially dead, Manktelow continued as a session guitarist and solo songwriter through the 80's, before becoming a schoolteacher.If you're into prog folk this one might be worth giving a shot.However I still expected a bit more from this lone Sindelfingen record. There were many better similar sounding bands active at the same time. The first is prog, with mostly soft mat'l, but some harder, and featuring flute and vibes. Grades - 2 B 's, 4 B's, 2 B-'s, a C , and a C-. Sindelfingen remained a well-kept secret of the UK Psych/Prog scene for years, a band found in late-60's in Rochester by singer/guitarist Richard Manktelow, bassist John Currie and drummer Bill Basden.
With this line-up Sindelfingen recorded their debut '' Odgipig'' in a limited private pressing of about 100 copies.The band featured a full-time glockenspiel player in the face of Roger Woods (who was also responsible for the oscillators heard in the album) and sounded pretty original, swirling around rural soundscapes, progressive structures and an expressive lyricism.Guitarist Richard Manktelow revived the band a few times and he even wrote a second work, '' Triangle'', which was originally intended for a multimedia show in Easter and was performed in churches. The 2-LP Cenotaph reissue and a non-legit reissue by the German Minority Records contain extended excerpts of this work, all performed live.At the time, around 1974, Roger Thorn had left the band because of his work and was replaced by 12-years old Matthew Letley, Mark Letley's brother. instrumental track sounds more professional in all terms, from the production to the arrangement.

Impressive Psych/Prog with lovely guitar work and eventually some beautiful melodious textures with the glockenspiel still in evidence, but this time brought more as a keyboard replacement, where the balance between dreamy parts and energetic, complex breaks is excellent. When Roger Woods also quit in 1974, Sindelfingen became part of the history.
They started as a jam band, before line-up changes led to more structured compositions.
Basden left after a year, replaced briefly by Alan Parry and then Roger Thorn, while Roger Woods also joined them a bit later.
With three pieces over 8 minutes long, Sindelfingen had plenty of room to present a charming Progressive Rock style, mostly guitar-driven and filled with odd chord progressions, unexpected breaks and shifting climates.
They come as a less rich version of GENTLE GIANT with hints from early GENESIS, offering interesting musicianship with complex themes, based on psychedelic, experimental and folky territories.
