Re: RIP Holger Czukay

Yes RIP indeed.

Cause of death unknown at present!

This is so strange! I hadn't listened to any Can for 4 or 5 years until earlier this week when I suddenly got right into them again, I've been listening to them every day this week.

Then Holger dies!

Need to get 1974 and onward albums as I'm only really familiar with Tago Mago, Ege Bamyasi and Future Days, all of which are amazing!

These are a great start, but they've done some other good ones.
I would check out Soundtracks (1970), which has my favourite Can song "Mother Sky" (amazing motorik drums on that one).
Many of the later ones are hit and miss, but there are often a song or two that are worth getting them. Soon over Babaluma (1974) and Flow Motion (1976) are pretty good and I've always liked Saw Delight (1977) - mostly for "Animal Waves".

I've just ordered 'Monster Movie' 'Soundtracks' 'Landed' and 'Flow Motion'.
I'm looking forward to checking them out.

yeah Monster Movie is great, haven't listen to that in a long time, and Flow Motion has got some good tracks (Vernal Equinox is excellent, as far as I can remember)

Re: RIP Holger Czukay

Check out the Peel Sessions compilation, there's one long track with Damo there, also a 1975 session which indicates how CAN changed during the Landed era, but also, two 1974 sessions which are completely instrumental and feature some of the most adventurous music the band ever performed, proving that it wasn't necessarily Damo Suzuki's leaving that caused CAN's glory years to end. It was the loss of that magical group feeling on the Landed album. Still, Flow Motion is a pretty good late period album.
