German monthly magazine from Munich. Started in 1966 mainly as a free jazz magazine, some years later switched over to progressive rock. In 1978/79 the magazine was a center point of a "new German wave". In 1983 the new owner Jürg Marquard merged two of his magazines, Sounds and Musikexpress, into new one – Musikexpress/Sounds. Several people from Sounds staff moved to the magazine Spex.

Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention "One Size Fits All"
By Karl Lippegaus, 1 p

  Automatic translation: FZ's music has never been harmless or irrelevant. If it should get worse, there could basically only one cause: the treadmill of the business, into which everyone who wants to earn money here has to fit in. (read more)

Zappa / Beefheart / Mothers "Bongo Fury"
By Karl Lippegaus, 1 p

By Bernd Gockel, p 80

Automatic translation: 56 minutes of playing time for four sides of the record is actually quite a joke. In the case of ZAPPA IN NEW YORK, however, one can only be grateful to old master Zappa that this time he made it short and somewhat painless. (read more)
