Anyone into Can?

I never could get into them although I like a lot of stuff that cites them as an influence (e.g., The Fall)

Did they ever release an album called Can?

Got a few albums of Can but since I'm german it's my duty to have so.

Yes, but it's far from their best. The first 4 albums are all brilliant.

Brilliant.

I enjoyed that video.

I can't access the video.

I once saw the later Can on TV, playing in a country house in
Spain (on Mallorca?). They were incredibly cool and relaxed.

I can't find any video footage from the pre-Damo Suzuki years. Apparently Malcolm Mooney was a completely berzerk vocalist- prone to attacking the audience.

Suzuki seems to be a pretty normal crooner
