Mute / Spoon Records to release'Can Live in Cuxhaven, 1976' on 14 October 2022

The third in the series of live CAN albums will be out on 14 October 2022. “Can Live in Cuxhaven, 1976” is the latest in the series which began in 2021 with “Can Live in Stuttgart 1975” and presents a shorter, more concise performance by Can over four sections. The new album is set for release on limited edition blue vinyl and CD.

The Can Live series has taken the best of Can’s bootlegged recordings – many of which were recorded by Andrew Hall, who died in April 2021 – and, overseen by founding member Irmin Schmidt and producer / engineer René Tinner.

You can listen to a snippet below.

The sleeve notes for this release were written by the French author Pascal Bussy, whose books include “The Can Story” (co-authored with Andy Hall, 1989) and “Kraftwerk: Man, Machine, and Music” (1993).



Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
