Can

CAN:  13 afternoon

Can was a German experimental rock band formed in Cologne, West Germany, in 1968. Later labeled as one of the first krautrock groups, they transcended mainstream influences and incorporated strong minimalist and world music elements into their often psychedelic music.

Can constructed their music largely through collective spontaneous composition—which the band differentiated from improvisation in the jazz sense—sampling themselves in the studio and editing down the results; bassist/chief engineer Holger Czukay referred to Can's live and studio performances as "instant compositions".

  1. Good job. You should hire yourself out to labels to do box sets.

  3. My Internet was not working for a few days but today I found this great compilation. This band had a very special hypnotic quality. I don't know any other band that sounds like 'Can'. Another outstanding compilation.
    Thank you.
