Can

June 15th, 2012

Spoon Records and Mute are delighted to announce the release of Can – The Lost Tapes, the long awaited box set of unreleased studio, soundtrack and live material.

The Lost Tapes, out on 18 June 2012, was curated by Irmin Schmidt and Daniel Miller, compiled by Irmin Schmidt and Jono Podmore, and edited by Jono Podmore.

When the legendary Can studio in Weilerswist was sold to the German Rock N Pop Museum, they bought everything, including the army mattresses that covered the walls for sound protection, and relocated it to Gronau.

Whilst dismantling the studio, master tapes were found and stored in the Spoon archive. With barely legible labeling, no one was sure what was on these until Irmin Schmidt and long time collaborator Jono Podmore started to go through over 30 hours of music.

The final cut of tracks, dating from 1968-1977, features studio material recorded at Schloss Nörvenich and Can Studio, Weilerswist with the Can line up of Holger Czukay on bass, Michael Karoli on guitars, Jaki Liebezeit on drums and Irmin Schmidt on keyboards, and on most tracks, vocals from Malcolm Mooney or Damo Suzuki.

Can was formed by ex-student of Stockhausen Irmin Schmidt, who, fired by the sounds of Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa abandoned his career in classic music to form a group which could utilise and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.

Close Watch

January 31st, 2011

This time AZ hits us hard, with this Berlin artist Agnes Obel, who does a cover of this incredible John Cale song, ‘Close watch’… and I find the words real relevant..

‘I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine’

Going out to the country is not as easy as one might think. Too damn quiet for me. Tried to get some sleep but the sound of no sound is killing me. Anyhow, while counting the minutes till daylight will save me, I was trying to capture lightless sights and found this gorgeous Korean song by Kim Jung Mi, a psychedelic eastern western 70`s singer, singing about going from dark times to bearable moments . Tape hiss, awesome yet simple guitar line, and Kim`s astonishing vocal, and I am real excited about this precious discovery, one of the nicest and touching songs I have heard in awhile.

Don Van Vliet

December 22nd, 2010

Don van Vliet, who performed and recorded as Captain Beefheart, passed away on Friday of complications from MS. Tom Waits describes his music: “Once you’ve heard Beefheart, it’s hard to wash him out of your clothes. It stains, like coffee or blood”. RIP,  Genius.


I need that record

April 25th, 2010

Records, vinyl, albums, record shops. For those who grew up almost half a century ago and were and hopefully still are into music, it is almost a way of life. The smell, the sound, the excitement that brings you new release, or the anticipation of an important album from a significant artist, you know, Bowie, Beatles, Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd, Zappa, and so on and so forth. I believe more and more readers of this blog, recognize mostly the mp3 icon on their desktop, no disrespect, and soon enough wouldn’t know what a CD looks like, and I am afraid, hardly ever been to a record store. It is a new era of digital downloads, itunes, emusic, sharing, youtube, facebook, twitter and myspace. My 13 yr old daughter listens to songs blasting of her mobile phone cheesy speaker streaming of youtube. Continue reading the entire article


Dont tame the Impala

April 19th, 2010

Just from looking at the control room at the photo above, you could tell these guys are on something, and some good stuff. This psychedelic Australian outfit does just what you expect them to , and for desert, still surprises you. Superb stoned harmonies, seventies sound, great flanged guitars, those funky solos and processed vocals. Highly recommended – Tame Impala, listen


Chess

January 20th, 2010

After hearing about Willie Mitchell`s death, I started listening to old funky as hell 45`s that I got, and listened to some on the wonderful ‘Funky 16 corners’ music blog. They posted a 45 released by the legendary Chess records, Little drummer boy by a group called Lenox Ave.This 45 was released in 1970. The group recorded an album a few years later under the name the Chuck Rainey Coalition (on the Skye label). Bassist Rainey and his cohorts – including keyboardist Richard Tee – were major hired hands in the New York) studio scene, showing up on all kinds of records from the late 60s onward.. This is a slow tempo, sexy Shafty kinda mood, with 70`s bg female vocals and funky as hell guitars.
