LOL at the Radiohead fans below insulting Can. Err...look up who Can were, we're not talking a few kids from Oxford here, they were all classical composers and teachers and students or fulltime jazz musicians (conductors, music teachers, studied with Stockhausen, that sort of thing). Malcolm was singer in an a cappella group and sculptor/poet. You know, in the way Radiohead now is trying to be serialist classical now and break into composition? They wrote and studied that stuff - 40+ years ago, and then 'unlearning' what they learnt and exploring rock and psych. I think that's pretty amazing to go from avant garde classical and art to rock like that without being pretentious or clunky as fuck. ;-)

How this could come out in the 60s is beyond me.

my take on the Can versus Radiohead debate...... they're both fantastic! Can's musicianship being 'inferior' is a bit of a head scratcher though!! :) let's face it.. for those of us who love this kind of music, having both Can AND Radiohead having made so much great stuff is absolutely fine by me... wish more bands were this inventive.

Is there some rule saying that every video for an old band has to have some douche complaining about bands they influenced? I bet they barely even know the bands they complain about
