Mute are delighted to announce the release of Can Live in Stuttgart 1975, the first in a series of Can live concerts available in full for the first time on vinyl. Originally recorded on tape, these carefully restored live albums will comprise the entirety of each show in the format of a story with a beginning, middle and end, with Can's performances taking on a life of their own.
Can Live in Stuttgart 1975 will be available on limited edition triple orange vinyl and will include a booklet with extensive sleeve notes by novelist Alan Warner, archivist Andy Hall and manager Sandra Podmore Schmidt. The band's line up for this legendary 1975 performance features all four original members - Irmin Schmidt on keys, Jaki Leibezeit on drums, Michel Karoli on guitar, and Holger Czukay on bass.
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, Sonic Youth, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Madlib and Radiohead - as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.
Whether locked into an airtight groove or exploring noisy chaos, the band moves as a singular organism that doesn't let up for a second. Their studio albums solidified Can's reputation as one of the most important and groundbreaking bands of their time, but Stuttgart 1975 exemplifies how that creative spirit translated to the stage, highlighting yet another side of Can's limitless ability.
