  • THE LOST TAPES was curated by Irmin Schmidt and Daniel
    Miller, and compiled by Schmidt and long time collaborator
    Jono Podmore.
    When the legendary Can studio in Weilerswist was sold to the
    German Rock N Pop Museum, they bought everything, including
    the army mattresses that covered the walls for sound protection,
    and relocated it to Gronau. While dismantling the studio,
    master tapes were found and stored in the Spoon archive.
    With barely legible labeling, no one was sure what was on
    these until Irmin and Jono started to go through over 30 hours
    of music. What they found was years of archived material, not
    outtakes, but rather tracks which had been shelved for a variety
    of reasons.
    Can's influence is well known and far-reaching and the impact
    they made on music is felt today as keenly as it ever has been.
    They themselves have always been impossible to classify and
    reflecting this, the scope of artists who in recent years have
    cited Can as a major influence is varied from John Lydon to
    Radiohead, The Fall to Portishead.
