Guru Guru's live performances in
the late 1960s and early 1970s were politically left-oriented. They organized
concerts together with the Socialist German Student Union, read
political texts between the songs, and sometime played at the jails. Their
shows were extravagant and anarchistic, some of the musicians lived together in
a commune in German Odenwald region, and experimented with hallucinogens
(one of their songs is titled The LSD March/German: Der LSD-Marsch).
