LATE JUNCTION: MAX REINHARDT INTERVIEWS CAN (320kbs-m4a/46mb/20mins)
BBC Radio 3 broadcast: 6th April 2017
Max Reinhardt is joined live by members of Can to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
Can are one of the most influential experimental groups of the twentieth century. Their heavily rhythmic, minimal music led the way in the so-called Krautrock movement and for many redefined what it meant to be a popular band. Max Reinhardt presents an interview with members of the band, ahead of a Barbican performance where founding member Irmin Schmidt will premiere an orchestral reinterpretation of classic Can material alongside new work with the London Symphony Orchestra. Max is joined by Irmin Schmidt and will remember drummer Jaki Liebezeit who sadly passed away in January this year.
