Formed in Cologne, Germany, Satin Whale were a late addition to the first wave of Krautrock, and were h eavily influenced by many of the bands that had preceded them, such as Sahara, Jane and Os Mundi, blending rock ballads with elaborate instrumentals that f eatured jazz and classical elements. The band was formed by keyboard player G erald Dellmann, guitarist/sax player/flautist/vocalist Dieter Roesberg, bassist Thomas Bruck and drummer Horst Schattgen. This debut album was the only album they recorded for Brain Records. Moving to Nova Records in 1975, they r eleased "Lost Mankind" that year with new drummer Wolfgang Hieronymi. This album was basically a continuation of their excellent debut and saw the band mature into a very competent outfit. They went on to release a further five albums, one of which was a soundtrack to a movie called "Die Faust in der Tasche", before splitting in the early eighties. Their final album, "Don't stop the Show", which was full-on mainstream song orientated rock, featured English vocalist Barry Palmer, who'd worked with fellow German progressive rockers, Triumvirat.
