Can – Hastings Pier 16th May 1975


flyer supplied by Roger Carey

Pete Fisher… Missed this one as I moved to London the previous year…one of my first flatmates there was a big “Krautrock” fan, and we listened to a lot of Can, Kraftwerk etc. Can set up their Inner Space studio in a disused cinema in the early 70s in a little town called Weilerswist, which happens to be just a couple of miles away from here…about 15 years ago I was part of sessions at Conny’s Studio on the outskirts of Cologne (photo album here at FB), formerly run by the late Conny Plank, who produced albums for Can, Kraftwerk, Eurythmics, Ultravox and many others…

Peter Houghton… Can played a great concert and afterwards I went back stage and then they signed my flyer for me

Pete Fisher… After moving from Hastings to London in late 1974, I shared a flat with a drummer who had all the Can, Amon Düül, Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream albums, so I became quite familiar with Can’s music. I moved to Germany in 1995, and in the 70s Can had their studio in a converted cinema in Weilerswist, a couple of miles from where I’ve lived since coming here. Bassist Holger Czukay continued living there until he died in 2017.

Alan King… fuck – best band ever
