OTHER ELECTRICITIES 2009

When my label, Other Electricities, told me they were planning a tribute to krautrock legends CAN, I was all over it. I've always wanted to cover I Want More, the bands only top 10 hit. I also always wanted to do Paperhouse but my label mate Black Feather beat me to it and did it some justice.

For my version of I Want More, the lyrics, originally sung in English by the whole band in unison, were roughly translated into the South African vernacular languages Xhosa, Pedi, Zulu and Sotho (exact translations do not exist in these languages), the languages of the four vocalists singing on this version.

Original by Can, Cover by João Orecchia featuring BLK JKS.

Music: João Orecchia
