Cans Tago Mago

Cans Tago Mago Finally, a brilliant exploration of the German rock band Can s 1971 album Tago Mago This hugely unique and influential album deserves close analysis from a fan, rather than a musicologist Novelist Alan Warner details the concrete music we hear on the album, how it was composed, executed and recorded including the history of the album in terms of its release, promotion and art work This tale of Tago Mago is also the tale of a young man obsessed with record collecting in the dark and mysterious period of pop music before Google Warner includes a backtracking of the history of the band up to that point and also some description of Can s unique recording approach taking into account their home studio set up.Interviews with the three surviving members drummer Jaki Liebezeit, keyboardist Irmin Schmidt and bassist Holger Czukay make this a hilariously personal and illuminating picture of Can.

    Can s Tago Mago is a complex album, filled with weird sounds and scant melodies Yet is is inventive and an immersive experience Author Alan Warner, however, does not really tackle the album from a technical point of view, rather he makes Tago Mago the epicentre of his coming of age into music If you re looking for a good anecdote about music consumerism in the late 70 s then this is a great book If you want to knowabout specific drums the skip to the last 20 pages, where Warner interv Can s Tago Mago is a complex album, filled with weird sounds and scant melodies Yet is is inventive and an immersive experience Author Alan Warner, however, does not really tackle the album from a technical point of view, rather he makes Tago Mago the epicentre of his coming of age into music If you re looking for a good anecdote about music consumerism in the late 70 s then thi...

    100 pages of wandering biographical prattling that has little to do with CAN at all Then 34 pages of interesting writing on how editing shaped their sound, and session details.

    The main fault of the 33 1 3 series is the tendency of its writers to get lost in their own autobiographies, dancing around their inabilities to describe those moments of magic when a young mind first opens to music and ultimately forgetting to tackle the album whose title and image graces the book cover Warner, a novelist who has used Can s music in his writing as well as joining Can on stage later in life, pleasantly uses his autobiographical standpoint less as a way to tackle the music of Ca The main fault of the 33 1 3 series is the tendency of its writers to get lost in their own autobiographies, dancing around their inabilities to describe those moments of magic when a young mind first opens to music and ultimately forgetting to tackle the album whose title and image graces the book cover Warner, a novelist who has used Can s music in his writing as well as joining Can on stage later in life, pleasantly uses his autobiographical standpoint less as a way to tackle the music of Can, but the band s mythology and the mysteries bands present when we have access to so little information Without trying to make grand statements or decrying our modern times, he revels in the joys of lacking knowledge, craving understanding, and the blind creativity that occurs when we try to solve a mystery running off a few pictures and sounds And what better band to tackle such a subject than Can A band somehow still wrapped in mystery in the Information Age to the point that the back cover ...

    It s not even about Tago Mago It s just some uninteresting autobiography about how difficult it was to find records in the 80s when you re living in the middle of bumfuck nowhere.

    By far the worst of the 33 1 3s I ve read More of an unsolicited autobiography about someone s boring history buying records than Tago Mago Only untilthan half of the book later when the album ever enters the scene The sheer lack of background knowledge is made obvious by the absence of much discussion on Tago Mago at all There are facts about the sessions in here eventually, and there are a few insights into the group s style, but there is soooooooo much filler around those spar By far the worst of the 33 1 3s I ve read More of an unsolicited autobiography about someone s boring history buying records than Tago Mago Only untilthan half of the book later when the album ever enters the scene The sheer lack of background knowledge is made obvious by the absence of much discussion on Tago Mago at all There are facts ab...

    Usual qualms with 33 1 3 books aside i.e portions too focused on writers personal story in a way that left me wantingabout the album and less about his riding a train to get a record as a 15 year old , this is a solid issue of the series A seminal album and you couldn t read this book without recognizing the authors deep love and knowledge for Tago Mago and Can in general Pretty deep dive, so I m not sure if this book would make sense if you aren t already a fan of the band or ready to Usual qualms with 33 1 3 books aside i.e portions too focused on writers personal story in a way that left me wantingabout the album and less about his riding a train to get a record as a 15 year old , this is a solid issue of the series A seminal album and you couldn t read this book without recognizing the authors deep love and knowledge for Tago Mago and Can in general Pretty deep dive, so I m not sure if this book would make sense...

    Yet another old geezer tritely reminiscing over the death of vinyl for 100 pages It reads like a conversation with any baby boomer dad ever Back in my day you had to walk to all kinds of stores to get your music Nothing can match the FEEL of pulling the record out of a full artwork sleeve Bands used to play REAL instruments If you want to actually learnabout the band, go watch the free documentaries on Youtube or just look up the Wikipedia page o Yet another old geezer tritely reminiscing over the death of vinyl for 100 pages It reads like a conversation with any baby boomer dad ever Back in my day you had to walk to all kinds of st...

    Although the 33 1 3 series includes books on many albums I like, this is the first I ve read I read it because it s about one of my absolute favourite albums but also because the book was written by a novelist, Alan Warner, probably most well known for the book since made into a film Morvern Callar I figured a novelist might bring something different, in addition to good writing, to the subject on that score I wasn t wrong First off, a significant portion of the book is not about the alb Although the 33 1 3 series includes books on many albums I like, this is the first I ve read I read it because it s about one of my absolute favourite albums but also because the book was written by a novelist, Alan Warner, probably most well known for the book since made into a film Morvern Callar I figured a novelist might bring something different, in addition to good writing, to the subject on that score I wasn t wrong First off, a significant portion of the book is not about the album, but really the context of the album in the author s life and his discovery of new music He also talks a fair bit about the difficulty of writing about music, though later on does manage to pull off the trick of describing the music in an interesting way that brings new perspectives Eventually, you ll be pleased to know, he does actually write about the album ...

    A fun read, but it should be noted that much of the book isabout the author s youthful exploration of music than it is about the Can album in question Music fans will likely still enjoy the read at least those who came of age at a time when tracking down information about bands, and finding albums outside the mainstream, required effort and took time Many of us can sympathize, having gone through it, as Warner slowly learnsabout Can, studies the photos in the albums and hypothesiz A fun read, but it should be noted that much of the book isabout the author s youthful exploration of music than it is about the Can album in question Music fans will likely still enjoy the read at least those who came of age at a time when tracking down information about bands, and finding albums outside the mainstream, required effort and took time Many of us can sympathize, having gone through it, as Warner slowly learnsabout Can, studies the photos in th...
