Hallo, CAN hat mich und meine Musik beeinflusst. Ich habe bis jetzt das 78'er Album "Can" (aka Inner Space), werde mir aber die Anderen natürlich noch zulegen! ALL GATES are OPEN, now!!!
I've been a fan of CAN since 1973 when I first bought Ege Bamyasi. I've since bought almost everything I find. It's been fun wandering around this site!
Johannesburg, South Africa
I founded a Club on Yahoo called "Can Opener" some months back for fellow "Can-nibals" (appreciators of the musical Can feast!), and we now have almost 60 members.
Recently, one of our number reported getting hold of a previously 'unheard of' CD called "Canobits", which contains definite Can recordings.
Not only are we all (as the greatest of Can fans) desperate to get our own copies of this 'rare' CD, but we're all very intrigued as to the origin of these recordings.
I have read (Can Box book?, etc) that Holger often used to keep the tape running in the studio after everyone thought he'd stopped recording.
The quality of most of the tracks (I am told) is pretty reasonable (one live - soundboard? - one). Perhaps (at least some of) the tracks came from Holger's studio recordings?
The tracks titles (which may mean nothing to you) are as follows:
o Tago Throwaway
o Upduff's Birth
o I'm Your Doll
o Hot Day In Koln
o Unplugged - Jaki Solo
They are available for download from AudioGalaxy at the following URLS:
o Tracks listed under Canobits (Tago Throwaway, Upduff's Birth, I'm Your Doll, Hot Day In Koln) at http://www.audiogalaxy.com/list/artistInfo.php?&r=24204204&offset=0
o The other track (Unplugged - Jaki Solo) is listed at http://www.audiogalaxy.com/list/searches.php?SID=69939a44e499bf6a71c67a5173c76e8 3&searchType=0&searchStr=%22Unplugged+-+Jaki+Solo%22
Any 'provenance' information you can give us would be gratefully appreciated. You can reply to me by e-mail, or perhaps you would like to post a message in our Club with your thoughts on this marvellous and exciting find - a little piece of Can history preseved forever? (I have made the same request of Holger, in case he may remember where these were recorded.)
I believe that Hildegard Schmitt (whose e-mail address I can no longer locate) is interested in 'collecting' good bootlegs for a possible future 'previously unreleased material' CD, which all us fans would love to buy ... perhaps she might like to know about this one?

I founded a Club on Yahoo called "Can Opener" some months back for fellow "Can-nibals" (appreciators of the musical Can feast!), and we now have almost 60 members.
Some of our number have 'decrypted' the lyrics for a number of Can's songs (you'll have to search through the message board for them, I'm afraid, though ... any time after maybe October 2001).
Hello, Here's Altmear from Brazil wiritng because I'm very very looking for any Video tape Audience /TV/Oficial/Rockpalast from this German Grounps;Arktis,Electra,Epidaurus,Faithful Breath,Can,Kraan,Mythos,Neuschwanstein,Novalis and others Progressives German bands, please help me... Send me links,informations and any noticies to help me thanks for advance
The new webpage design is great!
Any chance of DVD-A or SACD works by Can members? I can think of none better to expand the horizons of multi-channel sound. Also I was wondering about the Peel Sessions CD that had been released on Strange Fruit, any hope of a re-release on that one?
Thank you for the music.
I echo comment below re Vinyl: There's a large & growing market for Vinyl on 180gm from ANALOGUE masters -Beefheart, Byrds, Dylan etc. PLEASE PLEASE release the first 5 albums at least - Sundazed label in US would do a good job
Bron Speed Bank,Inc.
Michael Karoli R.I.P.
I like your sounds.
When Limited Edition/Unlimited Edition came out it contained so much fantastic music - 'Ibis' is one of my all-time favourites and it didn't even make it onto a regular album! Surely, for a band that had its own studio, there must lots more material from '68-'74? We've only heard a small part of the EFS series, where is the rest? If Spoon could release more from this amazing period it would surely be a fitting tribute to Michael.
Where can i get the lyrics of the Can albums? If you know something, please help me.
Any plans to issue the material on the PREHISTORIC FUTURE cassette? Or any other pre-MONSTER MOVIE material? I for one would welcome it.
...in search of more info.and stumbled across this...anyone reccomend 'a good read' on CAN ?
Have you ever thought about re-relasing Can albums on vinyl? As we see everywhere vinyl is making a big comeback, and Can's music really ought to be on vinyl. No doubt there would be market for let's say the five first albums. For all the evidence you need go to eBay where people are paying up to $60 for Tago Mago double record. At least think about it, please.

wo bekomme ich songtexte zu can - speziell der song "butterfly" - her?
ich hab mich erst seit kurzem mit der musik von can beschäftigt.
ian aus usa hat mir ein paar songs empfohlen; ich finde alle gut. dass ein mitglied der band gestorben ist, finde ich sehr traurig; auch mein großvater ist letztes jahr gestorben. ich wünsche allen viel schönes.

I Really Dig Can, great music that has stood the test of time and is still as good today as it was in the 70's.
Saint Albert, Alberta, Canada
Just checking it out.
Eery, scary, eclectic. This music sucks me into the vast vacuum of conciousness. I find myself staring blankly at the wall imagining vistas like Yes album covers, except darker and scarier. This band, stumbled upon purely unintentionally as I browsed for Sonic Youth albums, has almost completely changed my musical outlook.
Forks are better than spoons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been a fan of Can since the early 90's when a friend of mine got cannabilism 1. Have all their good stuff but peel sessions, anyone have any information on how to get it.
Lovely to hear that gormenghat became an Opera.Made by You!!
Hopefully it will someday come to Gothenburg.
or I will go to werewer111

CAN is my favorite group.
Ege BAmyasi would have to be my favorite CAN album.
I bought 'Incandescence' in 1982, when I was 13, and since then your albums have been part of the soundtrack tó my life.
With much luv.

I have bought a lot of album by CAN & found that its sound quality are generally unacceptable.
Do spoon records process re-mastering procedure & release a complete CD/SACD box-set for CAN? Please e-mail to me.
somewhere in southern, England
Dropped by for this....
Can are very special, are beatiful and vital and still ahead of their time. What happened between 1968 and 1973 remains the purplest of purple patches. The music is greater than the sum of its parts, grows in its appeal and changes with each acquaintance. Comparisons between Can and anything else are redundant : their art and discipline were unique. More than anything, Can make fine companions and perfect sense in a world that should embrace them as soon as possible. That's all. The site looks good. Anybody who wants to respond'll know now where I am.
city: london, england
just getting into Can - amazing stuff. Question - any good books to read, to learn more? regards

High,i first heard the Can,when i was 14 years ,and it changed my life. It was monster movie,specially You doo right,which had a effect like psychedelic drugs used to have,i felt in Trance...This was 20 years ago.Until today(Today i´m in the electronic-techno m8sic involved)The Can have done one of the most intensive ,progressive,illuminating music,universal music,which sounds still very modern...Magic!!!

CAN, uma das bandas mais originais da historia do rock, fonte de inspiração para " viagens ", continuem assim.
Can fanatic since i was a teenager (long long time ago)
Like the new look!
On the video included in the 'Can Box', there's footage of a short German documentary film from '73 called (I think) 'Krautrock'. Does anybody have any idea what the track the band are playing is called, and if it was ever commercially available?
can is something diferent,is like a dream
a good dream....
buena banda...gracias por la buena musica

My friend just called me and told me that Michael Karoli is dead. If that is true I´d like to express my deepest expression of sympathy. RIP.
Mr.Michael Karoli,Forever! Thank you very much!!

Rest in Peace, Miki, You leave us a wonderful harvest of Magical Music and Good Vibes. All guitar lovers are a little bit orphan now.
Hi big Can fan since 1971-managed to see them a number of times during the classic period.Shocked and upset to hear of the sudden death of Michael Karoli-best wishes
LONDON, UNITED KINDOM
I HAVE BEEN A CAN FAN SINCE 1973. WHILE BABYSITTING MY 2 NEPHEWS I LISTENED TO TAGO MAGO IN TOTAL DARKNESS AND IT ABSOLUTELY BLEW MY MIND. I ONLY MANAGED TO SEE THEM LIVE AT THE ROUNDHOUSE IN CAMDEN AND THE SOUND CIRCUS IN HOLBORN BUT THEY WERE MAGICAL EXPERIENCES. I DID MANAGE TO MEET MICHAEL KAROLI AFTER THE HOLBORN GIG BUT HE WAS MORE INTERESTED IN HIS GIRLFRIEND AND IF ANYONE HAD A GUITAR FOR SALE. JUST SEEN IRMIN'S AND KUMO'S LONDON CONCERT - GREAT - GAVE ME A GOLDEN FEELING INSIDE AND A BIG SMILE TO MY FACE - BOUGHT ALBUM.
grüße aus berlin, insbesondere an jaki, NACked wär doch ein schöner name für ne neue lp..
Where can I find lyrics of Can songs.I'm looking for Mother sky
I just heard Tago Mago all the way through for the first time (only heard Paperhouse and the short version of Halleluvah before). It's probably the most remarkable listening experience I've ever had. Can music does things to my head that no other sound could possibly hope to do in a million years.
Ein Dankeschön von mir an alle die etwas mit CAN zu tun haben. Euere Musik hat mich inspiriert.Ich hatte das Glück einige Soloprojekte Live mitzuerleben. Ghormenghast ist wohl das schrägste Opernstück das Ich je erlebt habe.Es scheint aber daß manche dies anders sehen,sonst wären Sie nicht mitten in der Vorstellung gegangen. Jedem das seine....Macht weiter mit eueren Soloprojekten.! Viel Glück!

no words , have a look !!!
Magic mashrooms out of dream
CAN forever! Yoo Doo Right!
hello people. i really enjoy can and everything, but i think the sound on the cds available now are a bit thin and lacking a lot of dynamics. do you have any plans on remastering the entire catalogue? thanks in advance.
the formulation of all sound qualities from every tiny little living organizm to the tallest and grandest mountain,the sound of all things makes life worth living,to know that we are just another sound is very humbling and reassuring. the women know what i'm talking about...don't you girls..!
FRAGE:hatte can jemals KONTAKT mit dem stockhausen ensemble(koelner gruppe 'b4pariser gruppe=AUS DEN SIEBEN TAGEN) bis bald DER CANAXIS es lebe ES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DENKE NICHT,fange dann an zu SPIELEN, MEINT k.STOCKHAUSEN!!!!!!!!??????????

Guten tag! World would not be the same without CAN. My bands KARVAISET ORJUUTTAJAT and Matula are yet another bands influenced by CAN. Thanks Holger & Co.!
to all: I'm a former Crash Test Dummie, and long time Can fan. Through them, i learned to break rules, and travel to weird amd wonderful places with my own music, sonofdave.com A big hello to the nice lady at spoon, and to my no1 guru Holger!!!
SO NOCHMAL:ICH BZW. WIR BRAUCHEN IN HOECHSTER NOTWENDIGKEIT MEHR CAN LIV E ALBEN!!! BASTA UND WAS MINDESTENS GENAUSO WICHTIG IST:PREHISTORIC FUT URE AUF CD;(ICH MEINE ES WIRKLICH ERNST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) CANAXIS!!!!!! !
The "Free Concert" was what turned me onto Can. I'd heard some studio stuff before that (mostly from "Rite Time"), but that didn't do the trick. The Free Concert was like a revelation. I remember thinking that how on earth is it possible to create such a sound live with the gear that was available in 1972... Truly amazing band. Probably one of the most interesting ones I've ever heard, and I've heard some.
I'm looking for "Prehistoric Future" on cd (the original tape would be even better, but highly unlikely)...Can anyone help?? Also why doesn't Spoon make t-shirts for us smaller people...I'd buy both that are currently available if you made medium sizes.... Also anyone into making a Can news group?? alt.music.can anyone?
Heloo eveybody, i need help in information about CAN, would you be so kind to send me something about it on my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Im waiting. Thank you everybody
I'm searching for CAN's lyrics. teach me.

Hello fellow music fans. Keep on truckin'. Listen to some Aphex Twin - I like him too.
Our band was influenced by CAN. We like CAN. We hope live performance in Japan by CAN project. sayonara~!
I have come to the conclusion that if one were to listen to EVERY recording by the CAN,(including solo projects) it would cover the ENTIRE spectrum of modern music as we know it and then some! You would not need to hear anything else...I have about 7 discs now (plus a couple on vinyl) and I have BARELY scratched the surface...what an AMAZING group!!! Cheers, Kenneth Agusr
Hi, I just bought "Prehistoric Future" on vynil today. On the cover is written "thanks to Hildegard Schmidt and Spoon Records". I thought it was a bootleg, did those guys have the authorisation ? The vynil has been, I think, just released (re-released). I don't think the event is complete, there's a fade at the end ? Will Spoon ever release a full version of this great head-blowing concert ? It would be great. Maybe Can have a better recording of this stuff, the sound here is good but I think it could be better.
Long life to the spirit of CAN

Great musicians!!!!, but i have to sorry, 'cus is very difficult to find you're music in Mexico...please do something about it

Yo Ian, worked with you at Bell Atlantic B.S. in Great Valley. You were handing out copies of "The Next Round", and bypassed me, thinking I was not into the music. Had to ask u for copy. Want you to know I play it often as my "mood music"....in fact, listening to it now. Wondering what other creations you have produced, and how I might come upon them. To refresh memory, sat across from Nate and Chris Cooper, left when merger with Decision Servecom was finalized. Good luck in whatever you are striving for now...........Ken Herman
all the best to you all

Also, echt, eine Kult-Band wie CAN auf einer (zwar inhaltlich guten) Musik-Seite zu finden, hat mich doch ein wenig irritier...
Alten Gästebucheintragungen entnehme ich, daß Ihr wohl mal "Silent Night" als Audiodatei zum herunterladen hier hereingestellt habt. Da nun bald wieder Weihnachten ist möchte ich den Wunsch äußern: Machts noch einmal ! (darf auch etwas mehr sein; wie Ihr hier ja lesen könnt dürstet das Volk nach Euer Musik..) - Was z.B. auch nicht schlecht wäre: die Veröffentlichung des Solo-Projekt-Auftritts von Karoli&Co. im Frühjahr 1999 in Berlin ... oder die alten Sachen, die eh schon als bootleg kursieren ...

Can are one the most interesting experimental bands of our era. No other band has captured the mushroom season with such accuracy.

truly a band that is capable of delivering so much sonic delight and innovation. "mother sky" and "halleluwah" both exist as examples of true "transcendent" music--where the listener can become lost within layers of both rhythmic bliss and lyric mastery. there is neither one note, nor one beat, nor one syllable wasted in the music of can. all is utilized for its truest purpose. nothing is misplaced.
THANKS FOR ALL THE FANTASTIC MUSIC !!!! BEEN A FAN FOR A LONG TIME AND IT STILL AMAZES ME THAT A TRACK LIKE OH YEAH OR HALLWELUAH CAN STILL MAKE PEOPLE OF ALL AGES DANCE WHEN I PLAY THEM........THANKS AGAIN!
BEL AIR IST DAS SCHOENSTE LIED ALLER ZEITEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ES LEBE STOCKH AUSEN,CAN,SONICYOUTH.JOHN CAGE UND ALLE EXTREM-EXPERIMENTEL MUSIKER DIES ES UNIVERSUMS!!!!!!!!! BIS BALD EUER CANAXIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Phoenix, Arizona USA
I think Can is the best band that didn't have Lou Reed or John Coltrane in it. Funkier than James Brown and more manic than anything else I've yet to hear. I'd say "Tago Mago" is on a par with Coltrane's "Meditations".....I think I'll go listen to Halleluwah!!!!!
