The latest release in the acclaimed series of live albums – Can Live in Stuttgart 1975 is #1 in Uncut and #2 in MOJO’s Reissues of the Year 2021 – the album offers a new insight into Can’s unique live performance and on this particular release you’re invited to join their interstellar journey. Unfolding over seven sections, the album includes a rare and evocative Michael Karoli vocal on ‘Brighton 75 Drei’ and Jaki Liebezeit’s incredible drum lead emerging through a fog of audience noise on ‘Brighton 75 Vier’ before the final track lands us in an incredible ‘Vitamin C’ jam for ‘Brighton 75 Sieben’.
The Can Live series has taken the best of the bootlegged recordings and, overseen by founding member Irmin Schmidt and producer / engineer Rene Tinner, run them through the wringer of 21st century technology to bring you these vital historical documents in the best quality versions possible.
Founded in the late ‘60s and disbanded just over a decade later, Can’s unprecedented and bold marriage of hypnotic grooves and avant-garde instrumental textures has made them one of the most important and innovative bands of all time,and these albums reveal a totally different perspective to the band. You may hear familiar themes, riffs and motifs popping up and rippling through these jams,but they are often fleetingly recognised faces in a swirling crowd. At other points, you will hear music that didn’t make it onto the official album canon. In these recordings Can go to even more extreme ranges than with their studio work: from mellow, ambient drift-rock to the white-dwarf sonic-meltdown moments they used to nickname ‘Godzillas’. And even as they adapt and chase the rhythm from minute to minute, you can hear the extraordinary musical telepathy its members shared.
Can Live in Brighton 1975 is released on 3 December, both vinyl and CD editions include a booklet with sleevenotes by Rob Young and Kris Needs.
