    More weirdness from the little band from Cologne that could. Short but very sweet.

    One of my all-time favorite bands. Tago Mago was a huge influence on me.

    Excellent. I have all of the early CAN stuff, but never looked for any live material on Youtube.

    What would you rather see?

    Seriously, Can is awesome. I only have Tago Mago and Ege Bamyasi. I highly recommend both.

    Discovered Can (also Silver Apples & The Groundhogs) about 7 years ago just by chance back when Windows Media had great band bios...pre-Wikipedia deep...funky electro dance schizoid rock...drummer recommended.



    think that's a Park fullstack on the left

    Perhaps Luke V would prefer this late era Can vid.

    I saw that vid on Youtube a few years ago, first stuff I ever heard by these guys. The groove is just awesome, the bassist is the real star here.

    Can is amazing. I find their improvisational approach to music inspiring and many elements of their sound -- groove, noise, dissonance -- way ahead of its time.

    I think you could make a case for Jaki Leibezeit (sp?) as the best 'rock' drummer of the 70s. Holger Czukay's 'Oh Yeah' bass line is my favorite bass part by anyone ever.

    Can is also the ultimate inverse 70s rock band. 70s rock is mostly about the guitar and vocals. All of Can's most exceptional moments involve the drums, bass and keyboards, though Damo Suzuki (vocals) has some incredible moments. I find that the guitar playing in Can is fairly consistently the least exciting and original element of the band.

    looooove CAN. I just got the Tago Mago reissue with the live 1972 bonus disc. so much goodness.

    they were so influential on so many of my favorite bands. sheer brilliance.

    Though I prefer their earlier periods, this 1977 edition is interesting as Rosco Gee (formerly in Traffic) takes over on bass, and Holger Czukay began experimenting with rhythmically mixing in treated found sounds from tape and radio (often from third world sources). This technique directly influenced Brian Eno's work, especially on My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts. I know this is true because Eno said so (he turned me on to Can).

    Love Can. Some great somewhat unknown bands from that time. Love Wigwam too.
