Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilise and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music. Damo Suzukis last album with Can as Vocalist. Only 4 tracks, but includes the astonishing 20 minute version of Bel Air and the 3 minute pop masterpiece Moonshake. This 1973 epic encapsulates everything great about Can then and now.
Cans powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Kanye West and Radiohead - as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.
