Can - Monster Movie LP
Monster Movie! This was the 1969 debut LP from The Can, that band of kraut-rockin', Stockhausen-studyin', JB's-lovin, beat-poetry-recitin' hippy freaks. Monster Movie features the unique vocals of Can's original singer, the African American singer Malcolm Mooney and establishes Can's signature style of relentless rhythmic psychedelia with songs such as the 20-minute "Yoo Doo Right" and the urgent groove of "Father Cannot Yell." Along with the Velvets and the Stooges, Can were one of the most advanced groups of the era, and certainly one of the best Krautrock bands. If you've yet to explore the world of Can, you could do a lot worse than starting here.
