“I hold professor dr. Holger Czukay personal responsible for expanding my mind at a very young age… “
This was a comment i wrote to a YouTube clip of Holger Czukay’s “Boatwoman song”. It’s a song from 1969 of Holger Czukay, bass player and sound explorer of the german band CAN. I have never succeeded in convincing my friends of the beauty of Can’s music. But remember, it’s in the end of the sixties and this crazy professor mixed short wave radio fragments with (very) experimental music. The song listed below is called “Persian Love” and is also a prime example of Czukay’s talent of mixing radio waves into songs. It’s from his first solo album after the group CAN broke up. Unfortunately Holger and drummer Jaki Liebezeit have passed away but this music will last forever !
