Collectors information & Description:

 

Monster Movie is the debut album by the German krautrock band Can, recorded and released in 1969. After the release of their first two singles in 1968, Can produced an album that was to be their full-length debut, entitled Prepared to Meet Thy Pnoom, but no record company was willing to release it. Monster Movie was Can's attempt to make a more accessible record for commercial release.

The cover of the album depicts the giant faceless figure of Marvel Comics' character Galactus, and is credited to "The Can", a name originally suggested by vocalist Malcolm Mooney and taken on as a result of a democratic vote. Previously the band were known as "Inner Space", which later became the name of their purpose-built recording studio. Some copies of the LP bore the subtitle "Made in a castle with better equipment". Upon its release in 1969, the album became very influential in the development of the krautrock genre. From the Velvet Underground-inspired "Father Cannot Yell", to the 20-minute jam (pared down from 6 hours) "Yoo Doo Right", Monster Movie brings together elements of psychedelic rock, blues, free jazz, world music and other styles of music in which the members of Can were steeped. With its balance of songwriting, improvisation, experimentation, and layering of sounds, the album set a standard for Can's subsequent albums in the early 1970s, Monster Movie enjoys the distinction of being the only album released during the Can's original decade as a band on which Malcolm Mooney performed all of the vocals. Two more Mooney songs appeared on 1970's Soundtracks album, with the majority featuring his replacement, Damo Suzuki.
