Uncanned: Legendary Krautrock Band to Release Box of Unreleased Songs

leave a comment »

Notable German rockers Can are releasing 30 unreleased tracks in a new box set coming this June from Mute Records.

The Lost Tapes, co-curated by founding band member Irmin Schmidt, draws from over 30 hours of uncovered tapes that lay hidden in the band’s studio in Weilerswist, discovered when the studio and all its possessions was sold to the German Rock N Pop Museum. Best of all for collectors, the tracks, spanning through the band’s classic period from 1968 to 1977, are all entirely unreleased. These aren’t outtakes or alternate arrangements, but music that has never been heard, commissioned for unreleased soundtracks or cut from albums due to space.

With artists from David Bowie and Public Image Ltd. to The Fall and The Flaming Lips citing Can as an influence, this set is going to be one to check out when it streets on June 18. In the meantime, check out the first track from the box below and hit the jump for the full track list.
