Krautrock legends CAN are about to make all of their studio albums available individually on vinyl, including Out Of Reach. Out Of Reach will be available officially for the first time since 1978 and for the first time ever on CD and digital (fair enough: in 1978 digital releases simply were not possible). All the albums are remastered from the original tapes, are pressed on 180gm vinyl and include digital copies.

Listen to Serpentine from CAN‘s legendary tenth studio album Out Of Reach below. The album itself will be released on 18 August 2014 alongside the other thirteen studio albums: Tago Mago, Monster Movie, Soundtracks, Ege Bamyasi, Soon Over Babaluma, Landed, Saw Delight, Future Days, Flow Motion, Can, Rite Time, Delay, and Unlimited Edition.

For those who don’t know: CAN was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilise and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music. These vinyl releases catalogue the changing eras of the band, and the different powerful singers like Malcom Mooney and Damo Suzuki and collaborators such as Reebob Kwaku and Rosko Gee. he band’s powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance – from PORTISHEAD, JAMES MURPHY, NEW ORDER, FACTORY FLOOR, MOGWAI, and RADIOHEAD – as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.
