Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A lot of the rock music that came out of West Germany in the decade 1965-75 was entirely independent of developments in the form that were happening elsewhere. There were a number of possible reasons for this, but the end result remains that rock has rarely sounded so rebellious, so free of precedents. Not for the likes of Can, early Tangerine Dream, early Kraftwerk, both Amon Duuls the preliminaries to elevation to the rock aristocracy, oh no. These boys and girls were seemingly intent on rebellion, and they made music accordingly.

In lesser hands the double album, which is what TM was in its original incarnation, would have been an excuse for all sorts of self-indulgent toss, but Can came from another place, perhaps another planet.

Listen to `Oh Yeah' and wonder what the hell they were thinking of. The band's drummer Jaki Liebezeit was originally a jazz drummer -prior to joining Can he'd worked with trumpeter Manfred Schoof- but here he plays like a glorified metronome behind `singer' Damo Suzuki's unintelligible babble while keyboard player Irmin Schmidt provides the sonic brooding only for the whole thing to break out on what in effect is no more than a one (bent) note guitar solo (okay so Slim Harpo's `I'm A King Bee' also features a one (straight) note solo but this is probably the only time when a reference to the blues is pertinent when it comes to Can)

Mind you, the locked-in groove of `Halleluwah' (wasn't this called `Hallewah' on that double album?) is as close as Can ever get to being a `beat combo' prior to a bit of sonic swelling the like of which a lot of the hippies wouldn't have countenanced, but then Can's Anglo-American counterparts were coming out of a far less blighted immediate past.

According to Julian Cope, "Every member of Can is a hero, a wizard and a truestar". According to The Rough Guide to Rock, "There is a significant lobby among fans and musicians that Can were the greatest band ever." With that sort of unrestrained praise to live up to, Can can't fail to disappoint. But for the most part, they don't, although it does take a few listens to get on their wavelength (especially Damo Suzuki's unconventional vocals).

Tago Mago - a double vinyl album in 1971 - certainly starts inauspiciously, with Suzuki intoning ponderously over the plodding, clunky couple of verses that begin 'Paperhouse'. But Karoli's delicate guitar breaks suggest something better, and when the song veers off, the band soars into a wonderful dimension of lyrical guitar and insistent jazzy rhythm.

I'll leave the hollow industrial sound of 'Mushroom', with Suzuki's wordless shouting, to the cognoscenti; it does nothing for me. But 'Oh Yeah', with its reversed rhythms and vocal, is a shimmering masterpiece. Then 'Halleluhwah' ushers in 18 minutes of groove, underpinned by the wonderfully disciplined drumming of Jaki Liebezeit - for me the hero of this album, along with guitarist Michael Karoli.

A similarly mellifluous piece closes the album, but before that come 'Aumgn' and 'Peking-O', which are strange beasts indeed - more like the 'difficult' non-music favoured by 70s prog groups. To suggest, as one reviewer has, that this was totally unique and original, is not quite true.

...mainly because the ultra-heavy original UK cover is reproduced (Damo's hair!) & because of the live tracks.
The original studio LP is a landmark in contemporary music. Don't let revisionist prog-snobs tell you otherwise.
The live stuff is hairs standing up on your arms quality. Maybe you heard some of it on a bootleg somewhere.
If you can't find this edition + you don't own the original studio tracks in any format, go remedy. Immediately.
Music beyond my powers to describe adequately. A unique recording, a unique group. Rest in peace, Michael.
