Born from a fusion of avant garde classical music and the emerging rock counterculture, Can's long, strange journey remains inspiring.
Mute stepped in to host 'The Lost Tapes' in 2012, a move which saw Irmin Schmidt rummage through the band's archives for a wonderful, intriguing glimpse into their unheard nether regions.
Now the label are to support a vinyl re-issue of Can's entire back catalogue. Amongst the gems is the first full re-issue of 1978's 'Out Of Reach', including the first time it has reached CD and digital download.
Alongside this, Can are to re-issue: 'Tago Mago', 'Monster Movie', 'Soundtracks', 'Ege Bamyasi', 'Soon Over Babaluma', 'Landed', 'Saw Delight', 'Future Days', 'Flow Motion', 'Can', 'Rite Time', 'Delay' and 'Unlimited Edition'.

Can are to re-issue their back catalogue on August 18th.
