Ax Genrich, the forefather of psychedelic krautrock, became the guitarist for Guru Guru in 1970, with whom he recorded the first five records. Without a doubt, this period shaped his guitar style.
He founded the group Rif in 1979. Next to Guru Guru, this was his most successful band so far. In the mid-90s, Ax remembered the underground times, first with Uli Krug and Erwin Ditzner as Psychedelic Guitar, then with Walt Bender and Mario Fadani as Ax Genrich & Band.
In 2003 there was a reunion with Mani Neumeier as Psychedelic Monsterjam, together with Dave Schmidt, bass, later also a few appearances with Dave's band Zone Six.
When the live CD Spontaneous Combustion was released on Horst Porkert's Sunhair Label in early 2009, Horst encouraged him to continue with Ax Genrich & Band.
