TECHNICAL SPACE COMPOSER’S CREW Canaxis 5. Krautrock holy grail! Monster rare 1969 German-only limited edition private press vinyl LP, picture sleeve. Just a few months after the formation of Can in 1969, Holger Czukay made this one-off collaboration with producer/engineer Rolf Dammers. Released in a run of just 500 copies on their own Music Factory imprint, the album, [inspired by his studies under Stockhausen], incorporated radios, electronics, sound collages and proto-sampling techniques over two side-long pieces. ‘Ho-Mai-Nhi [The Boat Woman’s Song]’ splices field recordings of Vietnamese traditional song, chants, shortwave radio blasts and more into a truly unique soundscape. Make no mistake this is a seminal slice of music history that single-handedly predicts sampling, world/ethnic music fashions, ambient, electronica and more.

Coffee, Smoke, Krautrock
These Mute reissues sound nice, but mine is warped and pressed off center. And the center hole is way too tight; had to use a deburring tool to make the hole bigger, damaging my center label in the process. Brand new, right out of the shrinkwrap.
I’m fucking grumpy. There is a quality control issue with vinyl. Can anyone check for QC issues on the European pressings of these albums? Maybe they’re better than mine is, it would be useful to know. Thanks.

Eat your greens.

Now Again Records (2019)
Blind pick, first needledrop, no prior knowledge. The hype sticker says Krautrock/Spacejazz so I immediately think it’s a reissue of an obscure krautrock lp. Now Again are my vinyl guide to many amazing records and even more amazing stories, I assumed retro and the opening track sounded like the kind of krautrock my prog rock friends would dig.
This is new material. Fourth spin happening right now. There are far too many namedrops that could help describe this phenomenal, druggy musical stew. I didn’t read too much into the history of the band but there’s a connection to the Poets Of Rhythm and bands like Can get mentioned. If you’re a fan of what I loosely describe as “70s drug music” and like exploring, this is a ride you’re gonna want to take. This will stay regular rotation, enthusiastic recommend!
I don’t have a buy link for you (sorry) but it’s available at all of your better indie shops. RSD is next Friday, look for it and share your thoughts in the comments!

Vinyl LP, Clear/Half Sky Blue
Released: 2012 (2019 Reissue)
Modern Japanese psych rock, with classic rock lessons and garage grit thrown in for good measure. I would hand this record to Jack White or Ty Segall and beg them to listen. Then I’d bug every fan of obscure 70s Japanese drug music and know they would pick it up immediately. I’ll include a buy link below but I expect they’ll be gone immediately. Tag us if you manage to snap up a vinyl copy, tell us what you think!
