Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music. Throughout the changing eras of the band, they enlisted the talents of different powerful singers like Malcom Mooney and Damo Suzuki and collaborators such as Reebob Kwaku and Rosko Gee.
Can’s wide-reaching influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in subsequent acts who freely acknowledge their importance – from Portishead, James Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai, Kanye West and Radiohead to John Lydon, The Fall, Ariel Pink, Fuck Buttons, Sonic Youth, Factory Floor and Queens Of The Stone Age.
1976's Flow Motion is the eighth Can studio album and most commercially successful thanks to the UK hit single "I Want More." The joyful 7-song set which is the most guitar-heavy album Can ever made also finds the band incorporating warped aspects of disco and Reggae into the mix with excellent results on standout cuts like the Moroccan-influenced "Smoke" and ten-minute title track groover "Flow Motion."
Flow Motion was mixed using binaural stereo, a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the performers or instruments.
