New Boxset Featuring Rare and Unreleased Music by Can’s Holger Czukay Coming Soon

A new five-LP box set featuring undersung and unreleased solo music by Can bassist and composer Holger Czukay, who died in September of last year, is on the way. The set, called Cinema, includes notable collaborations with Brian Eno, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Jah Wobble and more. The collection, available in CD or vinyl form, also features a strange “vinyl video” featuring a previously unseen clip of Czukay, an early video recording, and his first solo music video for 1979’s “Cool in the Pool.” Also included is a photo book and a DVD of a musical, a comedic TV film from 1988 called Krieg der Töne, which co-stars Czukay. Cinema is out on the Grönland label on March 23, which would have been Czukay’s 80th birthday. See the set and a full track listing below.
