German rock band, whose first release Auf Der Bahn Zum Uranus (1974) uses the "road from Earth to Uranus" as a loose organizing premise for a number of songs that celebrate a hippy cosmic oneness ("Tanz Mit Der Mond", "Mutter Erd"). The band's name is the German for Gaia, and the jazz-blues guitar-based improvisation tends towards the mystic-pantheist. A second album, Alraunes Alptraum (1975) contains only 20 minutes of original music, along similar lines. [AR]
