Electrip is the second of three studio albums by the German band Xhol Caravan, an influential member of the krautrock music movement. The album was recorded and released in 1969, and marks a significant departure from the band’s debut effort, 1967’s Get in High. While that album spotlighted the American blues origins of then-singers Ronnie Swinson and James Rhodes, by 1969 Rhodes and Swinson were gone and so were pop and blues conventions.

Xhol Caravan's 'Electrip' album is a prime example of where music was heading in the late 60's. This particular album opens up with the flush of a toilet (!), and then quickly blasts into some psychey jazz-rock. I own the lovely vinyl re-issue with the first five tracks only, and they jam really hard. The dominating sounds are sax and organ and, the spirit in which the music is delivered, sounds like a cross between early Hawkwind (relentless jamming) and the psychedelic jazz-rock of early Soft Machine
I won't attempt to cover the background of the band beyond stating that the album was released in 1969, the same year as the Amon Düül II's Phallus Dei and CAN's Monster Movie, which makes Electrip one of the very first albums to fall within the genre of Krautrock. The band successfully draw from an incredibly diverse list of contemporaries to create their astonishing sound.

They started out as the R&B combo Soul Caravan, but by the time of Electrip, the group renamed Xhol Caravan had opened up their minds for a much more bizarre mix of jazz and progressive psychedelic rock. Electrip, one of the earliest Krautrock albums, contains high-energy, drug-induced freakouts and acid jams with wailing, electrified sax-riffs; swirling organ tones; an electrified flute; many electronic and other effects; and intense rhythm funk grooves
