Performer Notes
  • Can: Michael Karoli (vocals, slide guitar, electric violin, baglama); Irmin Scmidt (vocals, keyboards); Holger Czukay (bass, djun, background vocals); Jaki Liebezeit (drums, percussion, background vocals).
  • Recorded at Inner Space, Weilerswist, Germany in 1976.
  • 1976's FLOW MOTION is probably Can's most immediately accessible album, borne out by the fact that the opening track, "I Want More," was the group's sole chart hit in Britain. The album title is uncannily (sorry) descriptive; this music flows with the sinuous grace of a dancer.
  • The Stockhausen-influenced repetition that marked their earlier records is still evident here, but Holger Czukay's bass has a new limberness and melodic bent, showing a fresh appreciation of the supple rhythms of reggae and other Carribean musics. Czukay's bass combines with Michael Karoli's headspinning polyrhythms to create a powerful, intoxicating sound. The lengthy instrumental title track is one of the finest performances of Can's long career, with the sinister "Smoke" (part of the group's long-running Ethnological Forgery series of faux world music) and the hypnotic "And More" nearly its equal.
Professional Reviews
The Wire (p.51) - "[Their] hit 'I Want More' benefited from their recently recording equipment and shiny new production sound."
