You may or may not know this by now but Can are and were the best band
of all time. My opinion hasn't been swayed in the last 15 years. Anything before
1974 is incredible..... Mute know this and they swallowed up Spoon
Records some time back. Any excuse to reissue
something.......anything.... one excuse?? Anyone think of one? OK they've
reissued 'I Want More' which was their UK hit back in 1976 and this is the 30th
anniversary of that. It didn't even chart highly or anything... Tenuous at
best.....There is some great footage of Noel Edmonds introducing them on Top of
The Pops in '76. Noel and Can together in the same room.... how much
would you pay??..... remarkable..... It's not my favourite Can tune by
any stretch. Originally released on the Flow Motion LP from 1975 it's a proto
disco classic which could possibly appeal if you liked Arthur Russell.
It's a bit cheesey like at times though. The orange vinyl 12" has mixes by Irmin
Scmidt and Holger Czukay and I can't tell what is on the 7"
picture disc cos the stupid label is in the way and it's all sealed. At the end
of the day it's Can and we all need a bit of Can in our
lives........ Check out Ege Bamyasi, Monster Movie, Tago Mago, Future Days and
Delay 68..... all classics.....
