OK so today I'm going to write about the can record Ege Bamyasi. Can's 1972 album is a bit like the younger brother of their gargantuan double album Tago Mago mostly because recordings were halted due to intensive chess matches between keyboardist Irmin Schmidt and singer Damo Suzuki which led to songs being recorded practically in real time reducing it to a mere 39 minutes. But in my opinion it has some of the best can songs ever on it like "I'm So Green" and "Soup" and of course "Vitamin C". So after Ege Bamyasi they made Future Days which was kind of a last hurrah from the classic Damo era of can because he then married his girlfriend and became a Jehovah's Witness(?!). So Ege Bamyasi is one of the great German albums and is essential to anyone who likes music.
