A GOOD DAY TO BE A CAN FAN



Well of course every day is a good day to be a Can fan. But news that a triple box set of unreleased recordings will soon be with us... superlatives seem insufficient at this point! What's more you can listen to a sample ten tracks at the Guardian website.

How do you loose 10 hours of finished material down the back of the studio sofa over a period of 9 years without noticing!?” asks one baffled commentator, clearly unaware of their working methods. (No such thing as a rehearsal. No such thing as a gig. Just playing.)
Some are live versions of previously heard tracks. 'Midnight Sky' is a touch too close to a conventional rock'n'roll number... oh, what's the use? Quite possibly the best band in the history of everything, ever.
And only four days till the next time I see Damo Suzuki...
