This exemplary documentary shows how DIY touring is really done. In 1971, years before Black Flag blazed the Econoline trail, husband-and-wife improvisers Limpe & Paul Fuchs (and their two small children) toured across Europe in a caravan pulled by a tractor. They often ended up playing in public spaces to crowds of unprepared passers-by, creating liberating spontaneous music on drums, homemade instruments and electronics.
play loud! archive & store presents two classical films about the band Anima Sound/Anima. Both were directed by Helga Tiedemann for German public TV (SWF). Both films have been licensed from SWR. The subtitles were created with the help of the Goethe Institute in New York. Music by play loud! publishing.

SYNOPSIS FILM 01
Made for German television in 1972, this rare film documents Anima-Sound (duo Limpe and Paul Fuchs) as they caravan across Europe in a homemade trailer pulled by a tractor, intermittently setting up outdoor performances for (often bewildered) bystanders.
The film simultaneously captures the nascent countercultural energies of post-1968 Germany, detectable in the Fuchs’ otherworldly improvisations, and the day-to-day of living on the road as the couple tends to their two young children.
SYNOPSIS FILM 02
Made for German television in 1973, this concert film documents the collaboration between Austria's piano legend Friedrich Gulda and '70s Krautrock duo Anima-Sound.
