Recorded on January 23rd, 2017
Jaki Liebezeit, original drummer and founding member of Can, died yesterday. No, I didn’t know his name before this (the only Can names I could rattle off were Holger Czukay and Damo Suzuki), but I sure knew his drum work. If you’ve heard Neu! or Stereolab or Unrest or the Fall, you’ve heard Liebezeit’s influence.
The track above is practically a Can hit and is one of my favorites.
