LIVE IN PARIS 1973
Mute and Spoon Records present the next installment of the curated CAN live concert series, LIVE IN PARIS 1973 - the first in the series to feature Damo Suzuki vocals. Out February 23rd on double vinyl and 2 disc CD, with exclusive sleeve notes by journalist Wyndham Wallace.
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. This record captures the band’s 1973 performance in Paris, and features Irmin Schmidt on keyboard & synths, Jaki Liebezeit on drums, Michael Karoli on guitar, Holger Czukay on bass, and Damo Suzuki on vocals for one of his final shows with the band.
Can’s powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James Murphy, Sonic Youth, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Madlib and Radiohead - as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.
