Nektar were not actually a German band, in fact all the musicians were British! Yet, they were adopted into the Krautrock scene due to their unusual history. The story starts in 1964 with Derek Moore, on tour with Beast in Europe, meeting Ron Howden. Ron was living in Germany, and suggested they have a jam when Beast got to Hamburg. Meanwhile the band MI5, with Allan 'Taff' Freeman and Allan Murdoch, had moved base to Germany due to lack of interest in England. MI5 became the quartet of Taff, Allan, Derek and Ron for a short while. When Allan Murdoch left to join Message, in came Roye Albrighton, an old friend who had also joined in on that early jam session, and in late 1968 Nektar was born. Nektar quoted their influences as Vanilla Fudge, King Crimson and The Beatles, yet what was revealed on their debut LP sounded more like a hybrid of Pink Floyd and Man. Attempts to get record contracts in England and America resulted in nothing but problems. One American manager signed them up, recorded an album, but then did nothing. They had promises of British and American tours, but nothing happened. So, Nektar decided to stay in Germany, settling in the town of Seeheim, and sought a contract with a German label. Bellaphon already had Nektar's friends Message on the roster, and had just taken over the progressive label Bacillus, and they saw Nektar as being their Pink Floyd or Hawkwind.

In the summer 1971, Nektar eventually managed to record the album they'd been working on for over two years, the sci-fi concept opus JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EYE. An extraordinary album, firstly sounding more 1968 than 1971, with lots of tripped-out guitar and organ gymnastics, with the surreal story told in song and music. As much legend as the music at this time was Nektar's light show, said to out do even Pink Floyd's, handled by the bands fifth member Mick Brockett. As great as their debut was, a more up to date progressive style was what Nektar needed, and it took well over a year to come up with A TAB IN THE OCEAN resulting in the definitive Nektar style. But, even better was the double ...SOUNDS LIKE THIS, a totally live in studio album, which saw them becoming like a hard-rock, space-rocking hybrid of Man and Message. Not surprisingly, Nektar had been touring with Man in Germany, and then returned to Britain with them for a tour. This resulted in a contract in the UK with United Artists. Their first album specially recorded for the British market REMEMBER THE FUTURE was a mite mellow and a disappointment, seemingly their attempt to emulate Pink Floyd's DARK SIDE OF THE MOON success. But, try as they did to gain greater success outside Germany after this, despite seeking the aid of Hawkwind's Robert Calvert on DOWN TO EARTH, the more they alienated their British audience. Seemingly they found their market in America, after their final European album RECYCLED, another sci-fi opus, which partly saw a return to form. The New York concerts documented on two double albums marked the end of an era for Nektar. Relocating to the USA, without Roye Albrighton (who had joined Snowball), resulted in the drab and uninspired MAGIC IS A CHILD, and then with Roye and Allan attempting to resurrect Nektar with MAN IN THE MOON, they'd lost the Nektar style entirely.

(Crack in the cosmic egg)

Nektar gilt gemeinhin als Produkt 'deutscher' Rockmusik. Tatsächlich hatte die 1969 in Hamburg gegründete Band ihren Standort in Deutschland, setzte sich jedoch ausschließlich aus britischen Musikern zusammen. Mit ihren charakteristischen Lightshows und Gitarrenklängen galt die Gruppe recht bald als spätpsychedelischer Anachronismus. Bei der Hörerschaft hatte sie jedoch durchaus Erfolg.
