Amon Düül II (or Amon Düül 2) is a German rock band. The group is generally considered to be one of the founders of the German rock music scene and a seminal influence on the development of Krautrock. Contrary to their colleagues in Amon Düül I, founding members Chris Karrer, Peter Leopold, Falk Rogner, John Weinzierl and Renate Knaup placed high value on musical ability. With their first album Phallus Dei (God's Penis) in 1969 they created what is considered to be a milestone in German rock history.

Here and Now, originally formed in spring 1974 to play at the Windsor Free Festival of that year, went through many early personnel changes, finally settling on a hard core membership of founder Kif Kif Le Batter, Twink El Toesmalone, Steffe Sharpstrings and Keith the Bass for most of the mid to late 1970's. This line-up had a rare and elusive musical chemistry that brought about the sound that still defines the band today.
The history of the group is complicated:
The Dear Hunter is the full-time progressive rock project of Casey Crescenzo, formerly of post-hardcore band The Receiving End Of Sirens. The band got its name from the lead character of the story that he wrote to go along with the music. The sound is unlike that of Casey's former band, with musical roots deep-set in the progressive rock genre and utilizing a wider variety of instrumentation. The band began as a side project of Casey Crescenzo when he was full time member of the Boston, Massachusetts band The Receiving End of Sirens.
