Can's iconic Ege Bamyasi gets a special green vinyl pressing.

Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilise and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.

Ege Bamyasi’ drops the haze and hits with a sharp pang from the get-go. Often described as the 'tense' Can album, Ege Bamyasi is actually the band at its most focused, bolstered in part by the surprisingly good performance of the single 'Spoon', the proto synth-pop (or synth-rock) song was used as the theme to a popular German television show. The album most famously includes, 'Vitamin', according to Pitchfork it’s “…still the best funk ever to come out of Europe.”

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, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Kanye West (who sampled ‘Sing Swan Song’) and Radiohead - as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.
