Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Release Date: 14th October
Here's CAN yet again blowing minds in the mid-70s, with a live set that is yet again free of hits, free of anything on record, just a band at the top of their creative powers improvising, experimenting and perfecting a sound many have tried (and failed) to bottle.
Mute and Spoon Records present LIVE IN CUXHAVEN 1976, the third album of the curated CAN live concert series. Available in full for the first time on blue vinyl, CD and digitally. Originally recorded on tape, this carefully restored live album comprises the 1976 show in the format of a story with a beginning, middle and end, bringing CAN’s performance to life. The series was overseen by founding member Irmin Schmidt and producer/engineer René Tinner, who delicately worked on restoring the archival recordings to the best quality for current modern technology. These albums have been released alongside a succession of interviews discussing the band’s live shows. The YouTube series comprise interviews with journalist/author Pascal Bussy, Mute’s Daniel Miller, music critic Nick Kent, Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie, and Andy Hall and René Tinner who were both involved with recording CAN’s live shows.
