The ground breaking experimental rock group from Germany, Can has a unique and tremendously influential sound that has transcended generations of listeners and musicians. From the calming and melodic tempo of one track to the screeching nonsense-speak of Damo Suzuki in the next, there’s just nothing else around like it.
The varied backgrounds of its individual members and their totally divergent approaches to music fuse into a soundscape that is entirely new yet partly established… just in different genres or regions. It’s word/funk/jazz/electronic/rock from another dimension.
Unfamiliar with their work? Well luckily there’s this awesome documentary I can direct you to.
