2012, Mute

VINYL FORMAT. Limited edition 5 LP box set, includes 24 page booklet and liner notes. Spoon Records and Mute are delighted to announce the release of the long awaited 5 LP box set of unreleased studio, soundtrack and live material from Can. The Lost Tapes was curated by Irmin Schmidt and Daniel Miller, and compiled by Schmidt and long time collaborator Jono Podmore. When the legendary Can studio in Weilerswist was sold to the German Rock N Pop Museum, they bought everything, including the army mattresses that covered the walls for sound protection, and relocated it to Gronau. While dismantling the studio, master tapes were found and stored in the Spoon archive. With barely legible labeling, no one was sure what was on these until Irmin and Jono started to go through over 30 hours of music. What they found was years of archived material, not outtakes, but rather tracks which had been shelved for a variety of reasons.

Can's influence is well known and far- reaching and the impact they made on music is felt today as keenly as it ever has been. They themselves have always been impossible to classify and reflecting this, the scope of artists who in recent years have cited Can as a major influence is varied from John Lydon to Radiohead, The Fall to Portishead.
