Album Review: Can - Tago Mago (40th Anniversary Edition)Tuesday 17th January, 2012 3:47PM
Can are the prototypical Krautrock band. Of the disparate bands and artists later grouped under that moniker, such as Kraftwerk, Faust and Cluster, Can were one of the earliest practitioners and first to release an album with 1969ís Monster Movie. Their legacy extended well beyond the initial incarnation of the band: Brian Eno, PiL, Sonic Youth, Stereolab and Radiohead (amongst many others) cite Can and Tago Mago in particular as a significant influence. For a bunch of Germans jamming in a castle, Can left an impression.
