Profile
Vinegar was a German progressive band from Cologne. After a few successful gigs, and winning third pace in a "battle of the bands" type competition festival, independent record producer Werner Purrmann was quite impressed by them and financed the recording and production of their sole LP in January 1971. The LP features lengthy tracks that give lots of room for the unexpected, musical complexities and instrumental solo breaks. Often compared to British bands like Tractor or Elias Hulk, one could quote T2, Pink Floyd, among dozens more. But, in all, they had a style of their own that was very Teutonic, and difficult to pin-down.
