From 1978. For the last few albums, Karoli and Liebezeit were joined by Rosko Gee and Reebop Kwaku Baah, from Traffic.

Communism, Anarchism, Nihilism… bit more of a mouthful.

Mostly pre-1974 kosmiche prog and artschule psych from Eckart Rahn’s Kuckuck label.

Moebius and Roedelius post-Kluster (with the departure of Conrad Schnitzler): deeply impressive, a massive but minimalist ‘cosmische’ landmark.

Blissed out crossings of their refined electronica with synths, piano and guitar, from 1976.

Moebius and Roedelius in 1981, reviving basic founding principles, back when Cluster was spelt with a K — stripped-down, intent spontaneity.

From 1974, after the move from Berlin.

Beautifully simple, open-minded ambient electronica from 1976, with Holger Czukay playing bass on the opener.

The 80s recordings of Matthias Becker and co in Cologne, ‘joining the dots between Cluster and Tangerine Dream; D.A.F.; Cabaret Voltaire and Human League; outwards to Giorgio Moroder and Daniel Baldelli.’
