Amon Düül was the name of the commune in Herrsching, near Munich, started in 1967 by about a dozen musicians and artists. It had good contact with the Kommune1 in Berlin, but had more influence on the german rock music scene than it did on the community movement. In the early period, the commune band became famous for its improvised music performed at happenings and demonstrations. Whoever was in the commune was in the band, and enthusiasm was valued more highly than musical ability. This was one of the reasons for a split into Amon Düül 1 and the more famous rock band, Amon Düül 2.
