Via "everything2.com" re: Ege Bamyasi:

Can is a Krautrock band from Germany and Ege Bamyasi is Can's 4th album which was published in 1972. It's one of the best albums by Can. You will find experimental rock in this album.

But what does Ege Bamyasi mean?

Ege Bamyasi is a term in Turkish. It means a kind of okra, "Aegean Okra". Aegean is a geographical region in Turkey.

Can members saw and ate this tinned food on a holiday in Turkey and it became this album's title. You can see this tinned food on album's front cover: Ege Bamyasi.

Soon Over, still. Ege next, then tago mago. But not only is Soon Over the most underrated Can album, it really doesn't even sound like any of the others, *and* it contains my favorite Can tracks "Chain Reaction"/"Quantum Physics". Also, now that I'm thinking of it, imo this is the record that "Future Days" hinted at, rather than the rest of the Future Days LP.

gayest flash mob pillow fight yet (Pillbox), Monday, 13 July 2009 13:07 (ten years ago) link

Might be of interest to those reading/voting in this thread--I made a mix of extra- and post-Can stuff (1977-1984) with tracks from 17 different side projects, guest appearances, collaborations, etc. A lot of really great stuff, often (in my opinion) stronger than later Can stuff (which is often underrated itself):


Can – ‘The Church of Latter-Day Can, Book Two’
(Beyond Can, 1977-1984)

01 Michael Rother (with Liebezeit & Plank) – “Karussell” (Edit) – ['Flammende Herzen,' 1977] (3:22)
02 Michael Rother (with Liebezeit & Plank) – “Zeni” (Edit) – ['Flammende Herzen,' 1977] (3:38)
03 Czukay (with Liebezeit & Rebop Baah) – Cool in the Pool” – ['Movies,' 1979] (5:03)
04 Phantom Band (with Liebezeit) – “Without Desire” – ['Phantom Band,' 1980] (2:38)
05 Phantom Band (with Liebezeit & Rosko Gee) – “You Inspired Me” – ['Phantom Band,' 1980] (4:00)
06 Eurythmics (with Liebezeit) – “Take Me To Your Heart” – ['In The Garden,' 1981] (3:35)
07 Eurythmics (with Czukay & Liebezeit) – “Never Gonna Cry Again” – ['In The Garden,' 1981] (3:05)
08 Les Vampyrettes (Czukay & Plank) – “Biomutanten” (Edit) – ['Biomutanten' EP, 1981] (3:32)
09 Phantom Band (with Liebezeit) – “Experiments” – ['Freedom of Speech,' 1981] (3:34)
10 Liebezeit, Czukay & Jah Wobble – Trench Warfare” – ['How Much Are They?' EP, 1981] (4:50)
11 Czukay (with Liebezeit) – “Fragrance” – ['On the Way to the Peak of Normal,' 1981] (4:13)
12 Phew (with Liebezeit & Czukay) – “Fragment” – ['Phew,' 1981] (3:59)
13 Schmidt (with Bruno Spoerri) – “Toy Planet” – ['Toy Planet,' 1981] (3:04)
14 Schmidt (with Liebezeit, Karoli & Gee) – “Endstation Freiheit” – ['Filmmuzik Vol. 2,' 1981] (3:37)
15 Dunkelziffer (with Liebezeit) – “Strom” (Edit) – ['Stil Der Neuen Zeit' EP, 1982] (3:03)
16 Czukay, Jah Wobble, The Edge & Francois Kevorkian – “Snake Charmer” – ['Snake Charmer' EP, 1983] (4:07)
17 Gabi Delgado (with Liebezeit) – “Victim” – ['Mistress,' 1983] (3:30)
18 Phantom Band (with Liebezeit) – “The Party” – ['Nowhere,' 1984] (1:31)
19 Phantom Band (with Liebezeit) – “Loading Zone” – ['Nowhere,' 1984] (3:50)
20 Dunkelziffer (with Suzuki) – “Watch On My Head” – ['In The Night,' 1984] (2:52)
21 Karoli & Polly Eltes (with Liebezeit) – “Yours & Mine” – ['Deluge,' 1984] (4:28)
22 Karoli & Polly Eltes – “Watch On My Head” (Edit) – ['Deluge,' 1984] (3:47)

[Total Time: 78:37]

If you don't know Liebezeit's Phantom Band, it's worth grabbing this just for an introduction to them (their first album is also up in full at my blog). Get the mix at Musicophilia and the Phantom Band's 1980 s/t LP here.

Soundslike, Tuesday, 14 July 2009 09:33 (ten years ago) link

I would not have guessed such a big swing--wonder what accounts for the virtual switch of 'Ege Bamyasi' (still my overall fave) and 'Future Days' (still a top 100 favorites album)? I wouldn't have any clue as to what's considered the zeitgeist of today, musically, but does 'Future Days' somehow better relate to it?


Hey Soundslike, thx for those Church of Latter-Day Can mixes, had missed those the first time around. I'm definitely in the "don't know much beyond Babaluma" camp, so I'm looking forward to checking them out.

Hope you like them, Tyler. Hopefully it'll spurn a couple new purchases (my constant nefarious motive) : )

Who voted "Sacrilege" ?

Mark G, Thursday, 16 July 2009 06:04 (ten years ago) link

"Halleluhwah" may well be one of the best tracks of all time. "Furure Days" is the better album though. totally second the result.

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Friday, 17 July 2009 08:20 (ten years ago) link

Future days seems to me like the Can 'white album'. It's an album that gets more and more kudos from fans of the band whilst not being in any way representative of what an outsideers view of the music of can would be.

put simply, its the albums the fans listen to but you probably wouldn't recommend it to someone who wanted to know " whats this Can sound I keep hearing about (on ILM)?"

as more and more people listen to all the other albums, then keep returning to future, it climbs steadily up the poll.

I couldn't agree less, "Future Days" seems like the Can album non-Can fans like, I don't think it's a particular favourite of "Can fans" and I'd say "Soon Over Babaluma" fits your "White Album" analogy far better! Anyway, it comes and goes, now Neil Young's best album is "On the Beach" and Can's is "Future Days" etc, it'll no doubt change in a while.

hope this helps (Granny Dainger), Friday, 17 July 2009 15:45 (ten years ago) link

First one I heard was "Babaluma", which is a weird one to start with!

Nuts, whole hazelnuts, HEEUUUUUUUURGGHHH! (Tom D.), Friday, 17 July 2009 15:48 (ten years ago) link

Future Days to me is the album people like because...it has "Future Days" on it. Remove that song, and the album stock plummets, probably to about the same level as Unltd Edition (which i do think is underrated!). Maybe Ege is the "fan" record, in that to my ears, it's Can at their best, even if it's not necessarily Can at their prettiest or easiest on the ears. Tago Mago splits the difference so nicely, it's probably the one I would recommend as "here is Can doing most of what they do".

x-post
Babaluma also the first I heard!

Dominique, Friday, 17 July 2009 15:51 (ten years ago) link

When it comes to Can, I usually seem to agree with Dominque, it's, uhhhh, uncanny... but "Future Days" also has "Moonshake" on it, so there we disagree... the deal breaker is "Bel Air", which a lot of people love but which I can't bear

Nuts, whole hazelnuts, HEEUUUUUUUURGGHHH! (Tom D.), Friday, 17 July 2009 15:55 (ten years ago) link

^^ otm. "bel air" is why future days is my least fave of the big ones.

pretzel walrus, Friday, 17 July 2009 15:57 (ten years ago) link

"Moonshake" is my Can mixtape jam. I feel like its a song everyone should love.

Trip Maker, Friday, 17 July 2009 15:58 (ten years ago) link

x-post

I like Moonshake! I'm just saying, a Can record comprised of Spray, Moonshake and Bel Air would probably be well regarded by fans, but hardly the "go-to" record.

Dominique, Friday, 17 July 2009 16:01 (ten years ago) link

"moonshake" is a mixtape staple for sure. to harp on "bel air" a little more, i think one of the bigger reasons i dislike it is that it sounds SO composed and plotted out, which is like the exact opposite thing of i want from my can epics.

pretzel walrus, Friday, 17 July 2009 16:02 (ten years ago) link

It's all a bit "prog" <------- kill the punk rocker

Nuts, whole hazelnuts, HEEUUUUUUUURGGHHH! (Tom D.), Friday, 17 July 2009 16:03 (ten years ago) link

I voted Unltd Edition just to be contrary, but someone else did too!

It was the first Can record I bought (and the only one I've got original pressing vinyl of) and tbh, it put me off. Going back to it after getting into Tago Mago, Ege Bam Yesi, and Future Days, though, it's got some great moments, esp the Empress and the Ukraine King. But some rubbish.

Anyway, yes Moonshake and Future Days are amazing, but it feels a bit slight as an album if you don't dig Bel Air.

If I were to vote for real, it would probably be Ege Bam Yesi, although Soundtracks would be close for the Mother Sky/She Brings The Rain close.

Here's my Can Spotify playlist (POXIV) again, if anyone is interested.

Thank you tons for these awesome mixes Soundslike, really enjoying Book 2 at the moment. Is that John Malkovich on "Loading Zone" by Phantom Band? Really, really sounds like him!

You're welcome. I'd be sort of surprised if it were John Malkovich, ha! I like the idea, though.

Kind of messed up that the Phantom Band isn't better known. And that the first two albums are so very out of print. Come on, somebody--put them in print, slap a big "by the Drummer of Can" sticker on the front, and let the money come rolling in!

ten years pass...

Can are an incredibly difficult band to search the archives for the latest / most current thread! This one is 10 years old, but I've no idea where a more current one is.

Anyway, a friend of mine recently went to the Rock’n’popmuseum Gronau, where a section of Inner Space studio is effectively archived, and took a load of photos to show me. Thought this might interest some of the other Can obsessives on the board!

I had an original Future Days LP for a while (Mexican pressing!) and it really did sound incredible despite being on very flimsy vinyl.

I struggled for a while with the most recent remaster as it sounds very different but have decided it's actually great. The percussion is much more hard hitting.

Must say I don't often get the urge to listen to Landed. Saw Delight is much better IMO, although Animal Waves is let down by a rather dull bassline that doesn't really gel with the rest of the track. That said I got to dig Landed out soon. The later ones definitely do sound great remastered.

all the annoying handwringing upthread about "bamyasi"'s meaning crucially misses that it is not an "i" but a dotless "i" in Turkish: bamyası

...but can't fault the anglophones for not picking up on that subtle nuance though.

Top 3 vote-getters are in my contention for desert island discs with order fluctuating between Ege/Tago at the top, Future Days is a step lower but still god-tier.
