News: Stephen Malkmus’ cover of Can’s ‘Ege Bamyasi’ released online



CAN’S psychedelic-krautrock classic Ege Bamyasi – the record which seismically shifted the current and future musical landscape many times over, and which further cemented the band’s status in the Krautrock canon with it’s experimental rock dynamism, following the experimental zenith of Tago Mago – is now approaching it’s 50th anniversary; back in 2012 though, the landmark 1972 album was revived at Week-End Fest to celebrate 40 years since its release. The performance saw Stephen Malkmus collaborate with Cologne-based band Von Spar, playing the album in it’s all its glorious entirety.

This was succeeded by a release of the performance through Domino Records (UK) and Matador Records as a limited vinyl pressing of 3,500 copies for Record Store Day.

Eight years later, the live concert has now been made available online, alongside a short documentary of the concert which also features Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit.
