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.
