I've never heard them. Should I?

Poops Mcgee, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Yes. Definitely. The first five of records are ACE. Can't go wrong with those. Future Days is my fave record.

nathalie, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Uh, yes, you should.

Search: The first six albums (Monster Movie, Soundtracks, Tago Mago (!), Ege Bamyasi, Future Days, Soon Over Babaluma).

Destroy: Pretty much everything else, although Landed has its moments.

lee g, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Depends what else you like - but yes, hear them. All the world will tell you to get Ege Bamyasi or Tago Mago - But some of the later stuff is just as cool. I suggest the 2 disc Anthology (it's easy to find) -

Everyone else will fill in the rest.... I'm too tired.

Dave225, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

The only Can track that has ever done something for me is "Animal Waves", one of the early instrumental world music tracks in 1977. Very intense atmosphere. Especially "You Doo Right" should be destroyed, bloody embarrassing chorus.

alex in mainhattan, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Maybe my favorite band ever (along with the Fall). First 5 albums are ridiculously good. Any of them is a great starting point.

Alex in SF, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Search: everything they recorded from 1971 until 1975. I also like the early stuff, but IMO it just isn't on the same level.

Destroy: DISCO CAN! Otherwise known is just about everything post- Landed. I actually know a guy who claims this is his favorite period by Can. I believe him to be mentally ill.

dleone, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

How about Can gone solo?

Mr Noodles, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I still haven't heard TAGO MAGO (which -- I'm repeatedly told -- is their finest hour), but MONSTER MOVIE's pretty fantastic -- if only for the epic-length "Yoo Doo Right".

Alex in NYC, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

DLeone is on the money about the 1971-75 period, but sadly wrong about Disco Can. The idea (and sound) of aging rockprofs harnessing their sonic explorations to the thrill of the glitterball is fantastic. I Want More is monumental.

Dr. C, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Also search: 'Delay 1968', pre-'Monster Movie' tracks which are punk as fuck and a major major source for the early Fall sound, 'Unlimited Edition', a collection of unreleased tunes that's got some essential early Malcolm Mooney-era songs, as well as quite a lot of self- indulgent old pony, and the 'Peel Sessions' rec., which I think is quite a good way into the post-Damo era. I even quite like 'Rite Time', the very late Mooney 'reunion' alb, and 'Saw Delight', which I think is far and away their most effective world/disco fusion disc.

'Monster Movie' is still my fave, tho' - and personally I LOVE the lyrics to 'Yoo Doo Right' (so does Bobby Gillespie - he pretty much lifted them wholesale for 'Movin' On Up'....)

Destroy: the mostly v. poor remix alb.

Andrew L, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Nothing by Can is worth destroying, but everything else is worth searching out. Of course, only each note that they've ever recorded achieves "classic" status, since all of the other stuff is clearly dud.

J, Wednesday, 10 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

for some reason my mind has been reverse magnetized on CAN i think monster movie and tago mago are dull plodding rock and i only start getting excited as their career slides into the crirical doldrums and they go discotastic

bob snoom, Thursday, 11 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I agree with what most people have already said- Tago Mago, Future Days and Ege Bamyasi are essential. Moonshake is my favorite song and Tago Mago does more for me than any Pink Floyd album (with the exception of Piper at the Gates of Dawn). The live Can: Box Music is also fantastic.

lou, Thursday, 11 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Tago Mago does more for me than any Pink Floyd album

Isn't that the equivalent of saying, "This Nations Saving Grace" does more for me than anthing that John Mellencamp ever did." ..?

Dave225, Thursday, 11 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I'd take Mellencamp over The Fall.

Can is awesome. I wouldn't put them in the same "must hear" category as somebody like Kraftwerk, though. All the albums I have (thru Future Days) have both dull moments and great tracks. I kind of wish they'd been an instrumental band.

Mark, Thursday, 11 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Dave- Ok, so there are a lot of differences between Can and Pink Floyd. That was a pretty dumb statement to make, I admit.

lou, Thursday, 11 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Probably my favourite band. In order of how I like 'em : Ege Bamyasi, Unlimited Edition, Tago Mago, Soon Over, Future Days, Monster Movie, Soundtracks, Rare and Unreleased (just for the single B-Sides) and then the rest.

Ege mainly has shorter distinct songs which may be your cup of tea whilst Future Days is the proto ambient one.

philT, Thursday, 11 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

It's very unorthodox to say, but I think 'Soundtracks' is a great place to start. The songs are shorter, more focused, really psychedelic... and it's got "Mother Sky" - not short, but perhaps my favorite Can moment (but there really are a lot of great moments, and you should check the band out in any case). There are lots of people who are "early Can"-ers - the rocking, garage-psych THUDTHUDTHWACKTHUD stuff. Then there are plenty of mid-period fans - the weird, bubbling funky albums. I haven't heard anything past 'Soon Over Babaluma', so I can't comment on that period of the band.

Clarke B., Thursday, 11 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I kind of wish they'd been an instrumental band.
Absolutely the singing is the weak point. One reason that Animal Waves is so good is that no one from the band sings on it.

alex in mainhattan, Friday, 12 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Totally disagree. Both Michael Mooney and Damo Suzuki are important ingredients to Can's sound.

It starts getting good from Soundtracks on. Future Days is simply awesome.

The whole disco period is ok, if you're a big Can fan, but I wouldn't start there (although I love Holger Czukay's "Movies" album).

Braces Tower, Friday, 12 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I'm surprised to see so much praise heaped on Monster Movie. I don't like it at all -- I found it boring, pretentious, and vaguely embarrassing, and can't really imagine what people who like it so much are hearing in it. Perhaps I need to dig it out again and give it another try, but...

What I've heard of Ege Bamyasi and Tago Mago sounded appealing, especially the former.

Phil, Friday, 12 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

i haven't heard it inna couple years to be sure, but there's this solo that erupts in the middle of "father cannot yell" which sounds like either a. a tape-slice glitch or b. karoli playing fucking backwards. it was then that i knew can were genius.

anyway, my favorite is still probably future days although everything they did has moments.

jess, Friday, 12 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I guess some of you will find this funny but a band called The Creeping Nobodies will be opening for Damo Suzuki in Toronto next month.
How many Fall references can one squeeze into a bill?

Mr Noodles, Friday, 12 April 2002 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Search: the records that everybody else mentioned, and I should add that "Aspectacle" (from the s/t album, in their disco period) is actually pretty great. I'm fond of _Delay 1968_, too, in a different way.

Destroy: _Out of Reach_, which the band hated so much it's never been reissued, and with good reason.

one year passes...

I know it's not meant to be any good, but the completist in me needs to buy a copy of 'Out Of Reach' - are any of the CD versions better or worse than others in terms of sound quality? I've read that, since it's been disowned and not officially reissued, the CD versions often come from poorly done vinyl transfers.
Any tips for which of the grey-area CD versions to try and locate?

Thanks

krakow, Tuesday, 23 February 2010 13:35 (eleven years ago) link

If there's a Can forum or similar where such a question might also have been answered by knowledgeable geeks then please point me that way too.

krakow, Tuesday, 23 February 2010 13:38 (eleven years ago) link

I dont know about sound quality, but there are several different versions floating around - at least in Europe. The one released by Audelic contains Out Of Reach and the self titled album and is pretty cheap, there should be also a more recent version from Cleopatra (!) that according our supplier's database should be easily available.

Marco Damiani, Tuesday, 23 February 2010 15:01 (eleven years ago) link

Thanks Marco. I didn't think to check for standardly available copies, assuming that the grey-area aspect would write them off, but I think I see the copy you mention, thought the UK distributor for Cleopatra isn't entirely clear and we definitely don't deal with whoever Synergie are ourselves. I'll try to see if maybe Cargo, F-Minor or PHD have it on their books.

krakow, Tuesday, 23 February 2010 15:11 (eleven years ago) link

I think that all these versions are basically non-legit.
I saw the Cleopatra version is available through Bertus, a big Dutch supplier: I'm pretty sure all good UK distributors work with them.

Marco Damiani, Tuesday, 23 February 2010 15:50 (eleven years ago) link

Cheers, that will probably help to know. If I can get it through the shop that's a bonus as I have a lot of left over holiday pay to write off.

krakow, Tuesday, 23 February 2010 15:53 (eleven years ago) link

add to search: the peel sessions - "Up the Bakerloo Line w/Annie" sounds like an acid trip. in a good way

Oh, I know it's not meant to be good. I want it purely for completeness reasons.

krakow, Tuesday, 23 February 2010 22:17 (eleven years ago) link

Is it 'bad'?

Or just 'bad by their standards'?

Mark G, Wednesday, 24 February 2010 08:08 (eleven years ago) link

It is truly and definitely BAD: the eponymous album has more than a couple of good moments, but Out Of Reach is pretty indefensible.
That said, I'm the proud owner of a copy exactly for the same reasons of Krakow. :)
The BBC album, instead, is marvellous and a fascinating glimpse into the band's compositional methods.

Is Cannibalism worth bothering with? The remix of Yoo Doo Right sounds like warmed-over trip hop to me...

good luck in your pyramid (Neil S), Friday, 7 October 2011 12:30 (nine years ago) link

you mean Sacriliege? the Cannabalism albums are just compilations

frogbs, Friday, 7 October 2011 13:17 (nine years ago) link

Cannibalism 2 has a few of my fave Can moments (the crazy/fun Mother Upduff is supposedly a true story; Turtles Have Short Legs one of damo's best vocals; Shikiku Maru Ten also excellent wierdness)
the first Cannibalism is less essential if you already have the early Can records but there's a few different mixes iirc.
and yeah, Sacrilege had a couple pieces i liked but i only recall the Sonic youth one right now....

epigram addict (outdoor_miner), Friday, 7 October 2011 13:20 (nine years ago) link

cannibalism ii's just such a great listen - it's edited together so well, the first clutch of songs p much sync up & match jaki's drums up iirc.

honest weights, square dealings (schlump), Friday, 7 October 2011 13:22 (nine years ago) link

I never tried Cannibalism 1 since I have all the albums, plus I hate how "Yoo Doo Right" is the only full length piece there. Cannibalism 2 seems good but if you have Radio Waves and Unlimited Edition then it's kinda superfluous. Cannibalism 3 is a collection of solo material and it's actually pretty entertaining (though disappointing if you're expecting a lot of great instrumental stuff). As for the remix collection, I really thought it was a big wasted opportunity, you'll probably wind up liking 1-2 of the remixes and find the others a waste of time

frogbs, Friday, 7 October 2011 13:24 (nine years ago) link

Ah yes, sorry, I do mean Sacrilege. It's the 3p mix of Yoo Doo Right that didn't sound too great to me, some of the other remixers might do a better job though.

CAN's studio always sounded like it was pretty amazing

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Sunday, 11 April 2021 03:14 (two months ago) link

I'd say the main reason for that is Holger Czukay. They certainly did not have a lot of expensive equipment!

Aside from a very basic sound mixer, four microphones and four cheap pairs of headphones manufactured by the German post office (which Czukay was proud to tell everyone had cost him only one Deutschmark apiece), the centre of Can's recording setup was two quarter‑inch Revox two‑track machines.

Also worth remembering, that everything from "Monster Movie" to "Tago Mago" was recorded at Schloss Norvenich, they didn't move to Inner Space Studio till the end of 1971.

Duncan Disorderly (Tom D.), Sunday, 11 April 2021 09:25 (two months ago) link

future days is just incredible sounding, I'm guessing the set up was more sophisticated by then. maybe not as much as I'd expect

I always assumed the foregrounded bass & drums on that album were based on sly & tfs' fresh but just found out they were both released around the same time. so whose idea it was to mix it like that and why idk but it works

new display name (Left), Sunday, 11 April 2021 11:37 (two months ago) link

Future Days is one of the most magical sounding albums ever.

dan selzer, Sunday, 11 April 2021 11:57 (two months ago) link

in my experience if the rhythm section is badass you can't really go wrong foregrounding it in the mix (see: every reggae track ever)

Paul Ponzi, Sunday, 11 April 2021 11:59 (two months ago) link

No, they were using the same set up on "Future Days", they didn't move to 16-track till 1975. The interesting thing about "Future Days" is that Czukay and Liebezeit weren't happy with the mix on "Bel Air", they thought the rhythm section was too loud!

Duncan Disorderly (Tom D.), Sunday, 11 April 2021 12:38 (two months ago) link

I'd say the rhythm section was foregrounded on all of Can's recordings before "Future Days", if anything it seems like maybe they were trying to get away from that on "Future Days" and subsequent recordings?

Duncan Disorderly (Tom D.), Sunday, 11 April 2021 12:43 (two months ago) link

some more about the recording setup at Schloss Norvenich, from https://www.loudersound.com/features/can-the-making-of-landmark-album-tago-mago

They had what Czukay calls “the perfect reverberation room” – a 40-square-metre chamber lined with cardboard egg cartons stuck on the wall by the band. “They didn’t help acoustically,” says the bassist, “but we pretended they did.” But their forward-looking musical vision wasn’t matched by their primitive equipment. They laid down basic tracks using a pair of two-track tape recorders. They had just three microphones, shared between Liebezeit and Suzuki. There was no mixing console. “Everything bled,” says Czukay, who recorded the album. “Balance was difficult. But the album has amazing acoustic qualities, even if the sound quality is junk.”

i've rinsed my og press of future days time and time again, sometimes unfortunately on poor record players, but it's taken almost no wear at all - it sounds clearer and newer than most new records i have. they did everything completely right with that performance to recording to pressing. marvel of engineering!

maelin, Monday, 12 April 2021 11:41 (two months ago) link

Taco Mago has to happen.

I've very likely mentioned it here before but I had a Mexican pressing of Future Days on the flimsiest beat up vinyl that sounded transcendental.

Tom D, was the disattisaction with the mix of Bel Air not that they felt the organ / string synth had ended up too loud. That's what I recall, perhaps from the Bussy book.

But I also have this recollection of Bel Air being dedicated to Hedy Lamarr and now can't find any reference to this. Maybe it was something else, I can't have entirely dreamed it because I didn't know who Hedy Lamarr was before that.

Legitimate Interest (Noel Emits), Monday, 12 April 2021 12:44 (two months ago) link

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 12 April 2021 13:13 (two months ago) link

Tom D, was the disattisaction with the mix of Bel Air not that they felt the organ / string synth had ended up too loud. That's what I recall, perhaps from the Bussy book.

No, definitely the opposite, Czukay let Rene Tinner do the live mix and said he'd mixed the rhythm section too loud. Jaki didn't have a good word to say about any Can albums except "Monster Movie" iirc.

Duncan Disorderly (Tom D.), Monday, 12 April 2021 13:18 (two months ago) link

Also, from the Bussy book I think, Holger liked "Future Days" because Can were becoming more symphonic, Jaki disliked "Future Days" because Can were becoming more symphonic.

This new John Dwyer project is doing it for me in terms of studio-spliced inner space CAN worship, FWIW--a really pleasant surprise which I'm more fully into than his last similar effort Bent Arcana ("Drei", the long 35-min jam, was my first-flip-through keeper off the new Stuttgart bootleg):

Jaki is super good too. though he seems to play at Russian folk song tempo a lot? like he's almost doing polka in some spots

since I never really listened much to the boots (always too low-fidelity for me) this was really revealing in how they made their material. it really is all improv until one of them (usually Schmidt) starts playing a line from one of their tunes and then the whole band follows and they just jam on that tune for a while. I don't wanna spoil which ones they are but a few of their studio tracks do show up here...sorta

frogbs, Thursday, 3 June 2021 20:30 (two weeks ago) link

that's what all their live tracks are like ime! i have never been into boot-hunting either but the Live 71-77 album is full of that sort of thing, plus the sound collage stuff on Lost Tapes, like Vitamin C showing up in Messer, Scissors, Fork & Light (which was assembled for a soundtrack iirc)
