This year marks the 50th anniversary of legendary krautrockers Can. In celebration, original vocalist Malcolm Mooney teamed up with Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley and My Bloody Valentine’s Deb Googe for a special tribute performance entitled, The Can Project. The first staging took place Saturday night at London’s Barbican Hall and featured renditions of the group’s classic material. Watch fan-shot footage below.
The concert also saw Can keyboardist Irmin Schmidt conducting the London Symphony Orchestra in a piece called An homage to Can, which weaved together “quotations and abstractions of some of the band’s most renowned pieces.”
The Can Project are next scheduled to appear at Glastonbury in June.
