Playful musings, 3rd rate psychiatric evaluations, and more (or less).

Can.

I want to go buy a Can album. Anyone have any advise on which one(s) to pick up?

Gotta love that 70's German funk. I've got a Penthouse magazine from the month I was born, there is an article in there about Can and Hawkwind.

I have Flow Motion which I really like.
I had Landed which I couldn't really get into and sold.
Tago Mago has been reccomended to me.

Tango Mango is as good a place to start as any, I always prefered Future Days the most. Ege Bamyasi is pretty good too. All this is from memory though as I don't actually own any, and it has been many years since I listened. Beware of the later Can (after '75).

can i get a Tango Mango Smoothie?


can is magical, but you need to know which version you want to get into and at what moments. i would say go to a record store that lets you listen to whatever they have, or use this here web device we're all floating on, and get a little taste of malcolm mooney on vocals. search for the long trance-inducing Yoo Doo Right from Monster Movie. swish it around. then get yourself a glass of damo suzuki on vocals. any track will do. try to fathom the multiple planes of his existence. if vocals are not your concern, then by all means skip to the Future Days and just groove.

the power of can resides in jaki liebezeit's drumming. he drums on all the records.

Tago Mago is their collective journey into inner space.

listen to the fall's 'i am damo suzuki', then go buy ege bamyasi or tago mago. they are two of my faves. and probably a good starting point. monster movie is good but didn't quite grab me like the suzuki stuff.

and i'd have to agree with tom kha gai on jaki liebezeit. he's sick.

can to be recanned!

my auditory canal eagerly awaits the remastered results. although this does not affect our beloved hugo's favorite, let us all rejoice. perhaps in future days the future days will be revisited.

Pick up a can of Miller Lite. Its Friday. The Sox are down 2 games. We've got to collectively help them rise above the evil empire. 1 2 3 chug.

early 70's faust is quite good. it's no can, but certainly more landmark than stepping stone in the world of kraut
