THE INNER SPACE: AGILOK & BLUBBO (1968)

The unreleased soundtrack to Peter F. Schneider's 1968 political satire. Psychedelic, stoned, agressive proto-kraut vibes courtesy of Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Jaki Liebezeit, Michael Karoli

(known a year later as 'Can' with the addition of Malcom Mooney and Damo Suzuki)

“Agilok & Blubbo is a faint, na├»ve and very interesting glimmer of Can before they were Can as all the musical ingredients are already in place -- the intro of sooth-drone Farfisa joined by a tape kebab of backwards overdubbed flutes; the electric guitar switches between a clearly-defined yet oddly tuned gypsy main riff and barely controlled burnout fuzztone soloing; the held-back yet insistent bass, the consistent rhythms and even Czukay’s edits between the main theme and interrupting cutaways all maintain in embryonic form the shape of THE CAN to come...” Head Heritage
