Consisting of two books and previously unseen art and photos, All Gates Open is the definitive story of the most influential and revered avant-garde band of the late twentieth century.
In book one - All Gates Open - Rob Young eloquently chronicles the story of a band that emerged at the vanguard of the Krautrock scene in late 1960s Cologne. Book two - Can Kiosk - has been assembled by Irmin Schmidt, founding member and guiding spirit of the band, as a ‘collage’. It features an oral history of the band drawing on interviews Irmin conducted with musicians, artists and film-makers who see Can as an influence. Extracts from Irmin’s notebooks and diaries from 2013–14 are also reproduced as a reflection on the creative process.
Can’s singular legacy is beautifully articulated in this authoritative 592 page two-book hardback volume.
