I searched and realized that there were no threads dedicated to this amazing band! Can was a seminal Krautrock band that released such classics as Tago Mago and Eye Bamyasi.

Damo Suzuki is a badass.

Discuss Can.

A friend of mine says they're awesome, but I never gave them a listen.
Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

They are very overlooked. Tago Mago and Soundtracks are both great albums, even if they are a bit strange. I wish I could find more of their stuff on CD but I can't find anything in my local stores.

Can were ****ing excellent although definitely not something everyone is going to enjoy.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Just look to iTunes, that's where I got all my Can. Get Eye Bamyasi next, it's a great album. It's has some awesome bass lines from Holger Czukay.

I've only heard Eye Bamyasi, but I fooking love it.
