Influential band Can's 'Tago Mago' reissued

A new 40th anniversary edition of Can's 'Tago Mago' (Mute/Spoon) is available now. It comes packaged in the original UK artwork for the first time since 1971 and includes a bonus CD featuring 50 minutes of unreleased live material from 1972, remastered in 2011.

The album's lineup at the time included Damo Suzuki (vocals), Holger Czukay (bass), Michael Karoli (guitar), Jaki Liebezeit (drums) and Irmin Schmidt (keyboards).

Listen to ‘Bring Me Coffee Or Tea’, as featured on the OST for the 2010 film adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s novel Norwegian Wood here:

All 14 of Can’s studio albums have been newly cut to vinyl from the remastered tapes for release as a vinyl deluxe box set in early 2012. This will include CDs of all the albums, extensive booklets, an exclusive never released live album (vinyl only) and a newly remastered "Out Of Reach," previously unavailable! The vinyl deluxe box set can be pre-ordered now.

The long awaited CD box set, The Lost Tapes, will be released in March. Curated by Irmin Schmidt and Mute's Daniel Miller, and edited and compiled by Jono Podmore, this will include unreleased studio, soundtrack and live material.

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Michael Karoli's death on Thursday, Spoon Records will offer a Best Of Michael Karoli Edit for free download on their site,
