From the Lost Tapes release from Can comes a new video for the song "Dead Pigeon Suite." One of the most innovative groups to come out of the Germany's Krautrock scene of the late 60s/early 70s, Can's music is the sweet spot where electronic tinkering, modern classical, and rock music collide. The band's influence on The Fall, Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, and many others makes the band's studio creations all the more interesting because the strange grooves the group concocted sound as potently original today as they sounded alien in their own time.

"Obviously the tapes weren't really lost, but were left in the cupboards of the studio archives for so long everybody just forgot about them. Everybody except Hildegard, who watches over Can and its work like the dragon over the gold of the Nibelungen and doesn't allow forgetting," said Irmin Schmidt.
