THE SUPREME DICKS, 2 albums (1994/1996, lo-fi krautrock-like)
I know nothing about this band (what an amazing name!) but I've found this on the web : "The Supreme Dicks were among the most intriguing followers of the aesthetics that equates "creative" and "primitive". The kind of drunk, dissonant folk music of their debut evolved towards the avantgarde and psychedelia on The Emotional Plague (1996), an ambitious work that resorted to sparse, dilated and warped structures."
Every kraut freak (but not only!) should try, there's a kind of vintage Ash Ra Tempel's touch here. Both albums, especially "The Emotionnal Plague", contain many beautiful moments, it's a curiosity I recommend absolutely.
Get "The Emotional Plague" (1996) here
and "Workingman's Dick" (1994) here
Thanks to Bertrand without whom I wouldn't know this odd band.
