I think that "One Note Samba/Surfboard" medley was done as reparation for nicking bits of both too blatantly previously.

The bass line of Metronomic Underground is awfully close to The Revolution Will Not Be Televised... hadn't really caught that before

iirc it's stolen directly from a Yoko Ono track on Appproximately Infinite Universe

Metronomic Underground/Revolution Will Not Be Televised similarity is already noted upthread.

The Yoko Ono song in question is Mind Train, from "Fly"

That Yoko track sounds like Can with yoko instead of damo.

I've often wondered how Ono & Lennon connected to krautrock - like, who actually gave them those records and what were they listening to - cuz its impact is really obvious on those first few Yoko records

Probably Klaus, right?

that's my guess, but I've never seen it specifically discussed anywhere

CAN seems like the most obvious thing they must have heard, maybe Faust (they initially made something of a splash in the UK press), maybe Schnitzler and Roedelius too idk

one year passes...

So that Hilma af Klimt exhibit... anyone else reminded of the cover of a certain Stereolab album?

(Less direct of a reference than usual, but this is so precisely up their alley)

Perhaps a reach but I want to believe

Thought I typed Klint on first post, apologies for error
