Rob Young & Irmin Schmidt
All Gates Open: The Story of Can
Faber & Faber
Release Date
May 3, 2018

Rob Young & Irmin Schmidt present a unique study - part biography, part symposium of one of the most influential experimental groups of all time, Can.

'The book comprises two elements of equal weight: a biography of the group by Rob Young and a Symposium curated by Irmin Schmidt. The latter explores, in Irmin's own voice and that of his collaborators and admirers, the tentacular influence Can have had upon not just popular music, but also the visual arts, poetry and film.

Can have been a direct source of inspiration for numerous genres, notably ambient, post-punk and electronica. Their music was created entirely on its own terms, and All Gates Open defines both their story and their continuing legacy with parallel originality and insight.'
