Can solo-albums

Postby never/ever » 27 Sep 2019, 22:38

I'm only familiar with Holger Czukay's solo-work which is patchy at best but entertaining nonetheless. I never really set out to check out the various other projects of Can-members.

Any recommendations?

They dont live up to their reputation for sure
The first three Holger Czukay are robust, then its just entertaining as you say.
I´ve got Irmins Impossible Holidays, that I really like, and Toy Planet (mit Bruno Spoerri)
supposed to be a electronic classic one, not sure I agree, been some time since I listen to it.
Jaki did Secret Rhythms, together with Burnt Friedman, really good one!

I adore the two collaborations Czukay did with David Sylvian

Plight & Premonition

Flux + Mutability

Listened to Secret Rhythms...I never was big on Friedman's noodlings and to have it underpinned by Jaki certainly helps. It's OK.

Will check out Irmin now!

And yes, I love the Sylvian-collabs!

Not quite the same thing, but I really like Phew's debut album, where her backing musicians are Holger, Jaki, and Conny Plank



Her second album, Our Likeness is even better, but only features Jaki. However, Chrislo Haas and Alexander Hacke make up the Teutonic legends backing her here:

Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
