Born on a grey autumn afternoon in 1979, “Kan Kan” was a pure British new wave band, which released only two EPs (“Changing Trains” in 1981 and “The Informer” in 1982), one 7’’ (“Film Noir” in 1980 and also contributed the song, “Phone Call” to the legendary compilation “East Of Croydon” (1981).
From the beginning, Kan Kan was always theatrical – the songs and images were intense, heightened, like “films for the mind”, stories for the audience’s imagination – songs about outsiders, and people broken and restored by love, meetings in stations, border crossings – footsteps, statues, clowns, a world of suspicion where nothing is certain apart from uncertainty… John Peel played the EP “Changing Trains” consistently and featured them on a session at the BBC … But suddenly during 1983, the band split up, leaving us “as their legacy” two EPs and one 7’’. They never succeed in releasing a full length LP.
In May 16th, 2014, after 2 years of collecting lost material, Geheimnis Records presents a complete anthology of all tracks – both released and unreleased – on a double gatefold highly collectable compilation album, in 332 hand-numbered copies, half of them on white and half on black vinyl, remastered and restored by Chris Manolitsis on February and March 2014.
