from the revised CD-Rom of "The Crack In The Cosmic Egg"

According to a seller's comments documented on Aga's DB these were an "Amazing German heavy progressive rock with killer organ/fuzz guitar breaks. Very long tracks, with a rough local unpolished early-1970´s Krautrock sound" which is not at all the case, as there are eight tracks in all with the longest at 7 minutes! And I wonder where the "killer organ/fuzz guitar breaks" are? All way over-the-top hype if you ask me. According to "Rock City 1982" we have a much more accurate write-up which says they are a Berlin melodic rock band with German vocals. It documents Grasland as: Michael Bister (drums, vocals), Peter Dircks (keyboards), Klaus Leydick (bass), Marcel Röse (guitar, vocals).

The band's LP debut ECHT NULL has pretty much the same band, but with a different bassist. It's not one of the most exciting of records, although it is definitely in the indie Krautrock style, be it a pretty mainstream melodic prog and hard-rock with German vocals. It does have some real nice moments, with the keyboard player attempting to push them in a more symphonic prog direction. But it's all rather rough 'n' ready, with a very home-made sound (in fact they go to lengths on the cover to tell us it was recorded in a spare bedroom at home). So, not amazing, nor really heavy. It's a bit patchy too, but not a bad one.

Two members: Peter Dircks and Marcel Röse also feature in Fliegenpilz.
