Can Box: Book By Hildegard Schmidt & Wolf Kampmann (Medium Music Books PBK £16.99)

Biba Kopf, The Wire, March 1999

IN ITS COMPLETE form, Can Box will contain a live double CD and a video concert, alongside the generically named Book. Amazingly, the live recording will be their first, unless you count a Peel sessions release For a group whose early concerts are as legendary as The Grateful Dead's, it is long overdue. The same goes for the video, which has been held up by problems clearing film rights. 

Total word count of piece: 630
