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. The band emerged from the radical West German commune scene of the late 1960s, with others in the same commune including the future founders of the Baader-Meinhof Group (the Amon Düül II band members disagreed with their violent agenda). Founding members are Chris Karrer, Peter Leopold, Falk Rogner, John Weinzierl and Renate Knaup. Their first album Phallus Dei (God's Penis), released in 1969, is considered a milestone in German rock history. They received offers to write music for films, winning a German film award, the Deutscher Filmpreis, for their contribution to the film San Domingo. Their second album Yeti was their breakthrough album in the United Kingdom. In 1975, they signed with Atlantic Records, and disbanded in 1981. Wikipedia
