can. the spoon variations. 1971. crime scene soundtrack recordings.

in 1971 francis durbridge shot the crime thriller "das messer" for german television and he invited can to contribute some improvised music to the soundtrack. scaffolding their hit-single spoon analyzed and treatized the sounds they saw and captured the score. you can hear 20 minutes of sound recorded directly from 70s television to an old reel-to-reel to my heartdrive: unfortunately too few things survive.

Thanks much, nice work. I'm increasingly drawn to such imperfect artifacts of history & personal memory, those obscure attempts we all make to preserve our own special pieces of the ever-disappearing past. In such cases, the imperfections latent in our (unprofessional) efforts often turn out to be as endearing & significant as the material itself. Enjoying your blog in that spirit very much!

Wow, I can imagine that the full version would be much like Halleluwah in length given all the variations on a theme. I would love it if that version could see the light of day.

New here,

I'm spending my time here for the children of Haiti.

I'm doing this for a non-profit haiti organization that is dedicated to
building oppurtunities for the children in haiti. If anyone wants to give money then do so here:

They give kids in Haiti a learning environment.

Please check it out, they're legitimate.

I greatly appreciate anyone's help

Hello everybody,

What online fanzines do you read and would recommend?

For all you punk people out there I recommend The Enough Fanzine. It is one of the first punk ezines on the internet.

They have throusands of reviews from the most independent bands all over the world. Check them out online: [url=http://www.enoughfanzine.com]Enough Fanzine[/url]. Best of it all, they are 100% non-profit and just helping the scene!

Looking forward to your recommendations.
