Holger Czukay - Movies

Holger Czukay's first solo lp Movies has just been reissued. Here's what Holger has to say about it:

czukay - news: "'movies', obviously having become an all time classic album didn't only get brilliantly remastered, you will also hear 2 different versions of 'cool in the pool', an original instrumental version from 1979 and also a stronger powerful rhythmic version of the original from 1979. 'oh lord give us more money' exists of the very first original mix including a part when i tried to sing for the first time when still together with can."

I briefly met Holger at the launch party for the Can remixes lp. Like a proper fanboy I shook his hand and attempted to express what his music has meant to me or something equally gushing and embarrassing. They say you should never meet your heroes but Holger is such a lovely bloke, he gave me a big smile and said "tank you very much". What a top geezer :-)

Some favourite tunes, both his solo stuff and with Can, are on my last.fm playlist - have recently added this funky little widget, ah the wonders of technology.
