Recently unearthed Can and Kraftwerk live footage wows fans

Both recorded in 1970 in Soest, Germany, these newly discovered performances are rare glimpses into the early days of two icons of experimental music.

Kraftwerk (long before their hit Trans Europe Express) is all but unrecognizable in leathers and sporting long hair while the Can footage captures the band shortly after Damo Suzuki was added to the fold. In each instance, the audience looks on in mute confusion.

It’s awesome.
