Irmin Schmidt
Nocturne (live at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival)

Irmin Schmidt is of course the keyboard player in legendary kraut-rock crew Can. In 2019 he was asked to perform at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and had prepared three pieces which had him playing a piano over pre-recorded music he had brought with him on the aeroplane. The result is a series of original and poetic soundscapes which you can now hear from the comfort of your home courtesy of Mute records.

Irmin Schmidt
Villa Wunderbar

Irmin Schmidt was one of the founding members of brilliant German band Can. Villa Wunderbar is a four LP box set of his solo ventures. The first two LPs compile the best stuff from his solo albums, recorded over a period of over 30 years, whilst the other two LPs are the best of his TV and film soundtrack work compiled by none other than German filmmaker Wim Wenders.

Can
Delay

Mute brought back more Can than any krautrock fan could possibly handle with the 'Can Vinyl Box', which featured seventeen Can records reissued in one bundle; now each record is stepping out on its own. 'Delay' is a rarity in Can's catalogue, comprised entirely of outtakes from their time working with original vocalist Malcolm Mooney. Released way back when in 1981, 'Delay' was only fully formed when band co-founder Holger Czukay brought together the flurry of tracks on tape to make a proper record. It's now been remastered.   Tracks: Butterfly Pnoom Nineteen Century Man The Thief Man Named Joe Uphill Little Star of Bethlehem

Holger Czukay
Radio Wave Surfer

Holger Czukay, core member of the perennially loved German experimental group Can, went on to be a productive maker of weird and wonderful pop. Among his solo albums is Radio Wave Surfer, a delightful 1991 release that was all recorded live, in studios and at concerts, with only one stereo mic: none of that Can studio trickery here! Reissued now by Grönland.

Mute brought back more Can than any krautrock fan could possibly handle with the 'Can Vinyl Box', which featured seventeen Can records reissued in one bundle; now each record is stepping out on its own. The self-titled 'Can' is the band's eleventh record, released in 1978 and unfamiliar to most. Like 'Out of Reach', little of the music, if any at all, is attributed to the band's founding member Holger Czukay, who stepped back in the writing and composing department.

Irmin Schmidt
5 Klavierstücke

An album of solo piano pieces from Can keyboardist Irmin Schmidt here. The five tracks of 5 Klavierstücke are one-take improvisations which were recorded on two grand pianos - one prepared, one unprepared - and augmented with ambient noise from around the studio in the south of France. The prepared instrument forms the core of the record, and in doing so it gives the LP a strong whiff of Schmidt's one-time tutor John Cage.

Holger Czukay
Der Osten Ist Rot

Holger Czukay, core member of the crucial German experimental group Can, went on to produce a considerable quantity of weird and wonderful pop. Der Osten ist Rot (‘The East is Red’ as indeed it was in those days) is his fourth solo album, dating from 1984, and it is awash with humour, grooves, and all-round subversive life energy. Reissued by the Grönland label.

Holger Czukay
Rome Remains Rome

Holger Czukay, core member of the crucial German experimental group Can, also created weird and wonderful pop / krautrock music of his own. On 1987’s Rome Remains Rome, he has assistance not only from Can drummer Jaki Leibezeit, but also from Public Image Limited etc.’s Jah Wobble, plus a well-dropped sample of Pope John Paul II on one track. Fun stuff! Reissued on Grönland.

Technical Space Composer's Crew
Canaxis 5

Back in the early days of Can, Holger Czukay was involved in a some other groups while also playing in the band. One was the Technical Space Composer’s Crew, a project with Rolf Dammers that was inspired by Czukay’s studies with Karlheinz Stockhausen. Originally released in 1969 - the same year as Can’s debut LP Monster Movie - Canaxis 5 sees the duo expand on the concrete techniques of Stockhausen. Strange radio incantations and static interference flit around Czukay’s bass playing on this eerie record.

Holger Czukay
Movies

Holger Czukay's classic solo LP Movies from 1979 gets a timely reissue from Grönland and it's a lovely, crisp re-press of the remastered edition the label graced us with two years ago. A future-jazz masterpiece, the record includes the wonderful 'Cool In The Pool' (very welcome!) and the experimental pop-with-synth-workout 'Oh Lord Give Us More Money'. Czukay channels the funk of Chic and the cool of Steely Dan; 'Persian Love' yearns forlornly and the fifteen-minute-plus 'Hollywood Symphony' rollicks along over a rubbery, unstoppable groove.

Damo Suzuki & Sound Carriers
Live at Marie-Antoinette

To this day, Damo Suzuki continues to tour the world, playing improvised sets with one-off ensembles of local musicians as he goes. On this Berlin date in 2011, his Sound Carriers include Ilpo Väisänen of Pan Sonic and Dirk Dresselhaus of Schneider™, among other remarkable types. Live At Marie-Antoinette is a double LP, released by Play Loud!

Can
Soon Over Babaluma

'Soon Over Babaluma' was Can's sixth album and its first after the departure of Damo Suzuki. With vocal duties split between Irmin Schmidt and Michael Karoli, 'Soon Over Babaluma' saw the band take a more ambient and spacey direction, albeit with the usual dedication to sheer experimentation and sonic imagination (from the reggae-esque opener 'Dizzy Dizzy' to the inner-space sprawl of 'Quantum Physics'). 'Soon Over Babaluma' was also the last Can album to be recorded on a two-track machine, and as such represents the band's last work within the technical limitations that their later recordings were free of. This reissue LP has been mastered and cut by Kevin Metcalfe and Jono Podmore at The Soundmasters, London.

Unlimited Edition

Mute brought back more Can than any krautrock fan could possibly handle with the 'Can Vinyl Box', which featured seventeen Can records reissued in one bundle; now each record is stepping out on its own. Originally released in 1976, 'Unlimited Edition' is a double record compilation of unreleased Can material from the late sixties and early seventies, documenting their very early years and showing off how they started to play music together. It features vocals from both original Can singer Malcolm Mooney and replacement Damo Suzuki.  Tracks: Gomorrha Doko E LH 702 I'm Too Leise Musette Blue Bag (Inside Paper) E.F.S.

Future days

Damo Suzuki's last album with Can is a definite highpoint from the band's incredible ouvre. All the elements that make the band so timelss and radical sounding even now are here in abundance: experimentation with all manner of electronic and organic sound textures and atmospherics pinned down by Jaki Liebezeit's jawdropping rhythms and augmented by an advanced melodic sensibility. As with all the recent Can reissues on Mute, all the stops have been pulled out in remastering this for vinyl to ensure optimum sound quality.

Can
Tago Mago

Can’s most sprawling and untethered work. The first side goes from the plaintive Paperhouse to the apocalyptic groove of Mushroom, to the uptempo masterpiece Oh Yeah, making for as great a side of vinyl as ever there was. Side two is taken up by the funk monster Halleluhwah. Side three brings us Aumgn’s occult channelling. The last side has the manic Peking O and the mournful closer Bring Me Coffee or Tea. Damo, Jaki, Holger, Irmin and Michael are all at the peak of their powers and in perfect cosmic harmony. Sacred stuff to be sure and never more so than on double vinyl.

Soundtracks

Early Can genius with this 1970 era compilation of tracks written for various films. It was the first Can album to feature Damo Suzuki though previous vocalist Malcolm Mooney sings on a couple of tracks. It sees the band honing their previous improvisational psychedelic jams to the more meditative work that would soon follow.

Landed

Following the release of the Can Box, Mute are reissuing all of Can’s albums separately. Landed is Can’s 7th studio album and was originally released in 1975. The album was produced by the band and they utilised a 16-track recorder for the first time which allowed them to add more layers of sound. Landed is available on vinyl LP with download code.

Ege Bamyasi

'Ege Bamyasi' sees Can at their funkiest, grooviest, and most accessible. The fourth album from the krautrockers blends avant-funk with hypnotic psychedelic rock, prog complexity and smatterings of early electronic. Stephen Malkmus has covered it in full, Kanye West has plundered some samples from it, and Can even scored a Top Ten hit when 'Spoon' was used as a theme song in a German detective show. All we know is this is an essential album of outsider rock with a rather tasty looking cover.

Flow Motion

The Can record most likely to be introduced on evening TV by Fern Cotton is Flow Motion, their eighth and most pop record, insofar as it made its way onto Top Of The Pops. Krautrock as a single-producing machine, the record still offers some cuts for the out crowd who want to hear Can do Can.

Rite Time

Mute brought back more Can than any krautrock fan could possibly handle with the 'Can Vinyl Box', which featured seventeen Can records reissued in one bundle; now each record is stepping out on its own. 'Rite Time' is a very late entry in the Can catalogue, initially released in 1986 after 'Out of Reach' and 'Can', records that mostly did away with contributions from Holger Czukay. For 'Rite Time', the band were struck with nostalgia and reunited with original vocalist Malcolm Mooney. Consider it Can's high school reunion: it was released ten years after they recorded their self-titled farewell, 'Can'.

Saw Delight

Mid-era Can was for dividing fans, breaking hearts and experimenting with lots of new ideas, and Saw Delight was no exception, bringing in two new contributors to the fold -- both ex-Traffic folks -- and taking on a general, ambiguous interest in world music a la Paul Simon in his Graceland era.

Out Of Reach

Mute brought back more Can than any krautrock fan could possibly handle with the 'Can Vinyl Box', which featured seventeen Can records reissued in one bundle; now each record is stepping out on its own. 1978's 'Out of Reach' was the tenth official record in Can's discography, doing without the band's ex-bassist and principle member Holger Czukay, who no longer played bass for Can at this time, instead performing only small electronic duties. The bandleader on 'Out of Reach' is Rosko Gee, who replaced Czukay on bass towards the end of Can's tenure as krautrock kings. It consists, for the most part, of instrumental compositions, with occasional vocals from Gee.
