Motorik

Inspired by @Benny B and his krautrock thread I thought I would do a motorik one.... there is something I absolutely love about that sound that can be rocking or hypnotic... always the same and always different if you like.
Some of mine off the top of my head... some are maybe a bit tenuous but close enough. Please tell me more - would love to hear a really great one that I don't know.

Nisennenmondai - B-1

the drummer is really good at motorik beats, bass player doesn't feel the need to stray from the same pattern

Hallogallo came on the radio when I was driving through Brighton last week, I was hoping they'd play it twice.


Kyuss did some chugging motorik metal as well, which went well with smoking eye watering skunk

Station 17 ft Michael Rother - Boogie Boogie Baka ( Live )

a lot of the members of this band are differently abled, motorik as therapy

nb this thread is not supposed to challenge @Benny B's in any way, rather it is inspired by that and intended to complement it. It's just that to me krautrock can mean so many things; if asked I would say "I love krautrock" but the fact is that a huge lot of it I find incredibly boring. It's definitely not the case that I only like motorik stuff... but a lot of the stuff I'm thinking of when I say "I love krautrock" does have that chugging sound to it.

I've been trying to avoid repeating bands (could have put Superbike by Fat Truckers or Black Silk Stocking by Chrisma for example) and for Hawkwind I picked their most motorik which is Opa-Loka. However I think that Valium 10 which (as with Precious Mountain) I think of sort of quasi-motorik is an absolute beast of a tune - and also I am listing it here cos it is strongly inspired by a Cluster track but I can't remember which one, any ideas?

Edit, should put the track there...
