Synopsis

Album Description
Holger Czukay's first post-Can solo album finds the bass player exploring prog rock jams with varied instrumentation, song-oriented lyrics and media samples from film, television and short-wave. It was the samples that put Czukay in the same category as David Byrne and Brian Eno: an art rocker exploring the early days concurrently with early hip-hop pioneers. On Persian Love, Czukay backs up clips of an Iranian singer recorded off short-wave with lilting guitar and keyboard riffs that sparkle like light. The album is all pleasant, playful textures, with little of the darkness that Can dallied with. First released in 1979, it was ranked at #5 amongst the best albums of the year by NME in England. Even the US press compared the production of Movies with records of The Beatles and in Japan some tracks were used for TV commercials. This is Holger Czukay's masterpiece! The Revisited version features a previously unreleased instrumental version of Cool In The Pool as bonus track.
